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.

Echo Dropin On Android Device
« on: November 01, 2018, 10:19:05 am »
Good Afternoon.

I have the alexa app on my android phone and I purchased an echo dot. I can drop in on the echo dot from my phone and I presumed I could  do the opposite, that is, drop in on my phone from my echo dot.

The reason I ask is I am Nan's carer and I have set her up an echo dot as well so she can drop in on me were ever I have a dot arround the house. I was hoping that I could extend this to my 4g/3g android phone while out on the road. I have searched google but can not come up with anything. Is it even possible? Any help would appreciated.

Thanks In Advance

You cannot drop in on a phone because, well, it's a phone.
You can only drop in on Echo devices. I'm pretty sure that also means drop in will not work on Fire tablets and Fire TV devices either.
