When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Setting up Alexa Show
« on: August 23, 2018, 09:10:33 am »
I've been trying to link my mums alexa show (one with display screen) with the app on her phone. When I go to add device  from the app, alexa show is not an option. All I have is echo, dot and plus.

Do I use one of these? Main reason for doing so is so I can link her Spotify via the app so she can ask Alexa to play from Spotify

Thanks

You must have a very old version of the Alexa app. Update and get the new one.

I will try that. Couldn't find a version update in the app itself. Presume its a remove and install.

Thanks, I'll try that

Did you set up the show from the device itself yet? If you did that correctly, it should show up in the app after that.
My Alexa stuff:
Echo Show, Echo Spot, 4 Echo Dots, Fire TV, Fire tablet,
Vobot Alarmclock, Logitech Harmony Hub, house full of Hue lights,
Ring 1+2 doorbells, Tado smart thermostat, Plex server.

The device came half set up linked to my amazon account (as I purchased for her).....

Is there a way I can reset it and start fresh using her details?
