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 Dot 3rd Gen has features my Plus doesn't
« on: November 01, 2018, 05:08:40 pm »
Ok so I have the 1st gen Echo plus in the kitchen and I picked up the 3rd Gen dot for the sitting room.  There is a couple of things that my dot has or can do that the plus cant.

In the alexa app under my dot I have the follow up mode but on my Plus I don't.
My dot can turn on my Xbox and launch games but my Plus can't. She has trouble connecting or something along that line. Is there something I'm missing here? Anyone else noticed these little things?

I think it's available in the settings for the new, 3rd gen dot's for some reason but nothing below 3rd gen in europe.  Which is annoying...

I have a 3rd generation dot but I canít see any setting for Ďfollow upí. Perhaps the OP could be more specific on where the setting is hiding!

if follow up mode is available, it will be under each individual device in the app.

nor me - it refers you to a Symbol that does not appear to be there..

many others have it working though...

i guess it is down to the App version?

I have follow up mode active on the echo plus 1st Gen, your device may not have received the update firmware yet as all 1st Gen, 2nd Gen and 3rd Gen devices I have from the various echo models all support follow up mode and I live in the UK.
I'm echo mad! The owner of 11 echo dots (x10 2nd Gen and x1 3rd Gen), 1 echo, 2 echo plus(1st Gen and 2nd Gen), 3 echo spots, 1 echo show and 6 Fire TV sticks.
