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.

Whisper Mode - UK
« on: November 13, 2018, 02:20:44 pm »
Hi All,

I've got an Echo Spot and was just wondering if anyone else that also has the Spot, is able to use Whisper Mode? So far I haven't noticed the ability to either enable it using the Alexa App or on the device itself?

Thanks!

Unfortunately this seems to be yet another feature that may take forever (if EVER) to make it outside the USA.

.... still waiting for Follow-up mode and that's been "promised" (in the UK media) since March of this year.

Follow-up mode is live in the UK (since this week), you need to enable it in the app..

Thanks - Lots of websites and indeed UK based websites reporting the functionality (assuming they're just doing a copy job from US based websites).

Will have to hold on!

For clarity, this is not a global setting - it needs to be enabled for each device in All Devices.

Select the Devices icon "".
Select the Echo & Alexa tile.
Select your device.
Scroll down to Follow-Up Mode and use the toggle to turn it on.
