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.

Alarm with music
« on: November 23, 2018, 06:38:16 am »
Am in UK. Tried Alarm Music on Alexa and Echo Dot (v2 & 3) without any success at all. It sets the alarm but plays the tone set in the profile. I have Spotify Premium (as default) which is not recognised for alarm. I tried something like:

"Alexa, set alarm for 1:00pm to Bohemian Rhapsody.

I've noticed it can be sensitive to how you ask...

Try saying it like this: Alexa, set an alarm playing Bohemian Rhapsody at 1 o'clock.

I agree, it is how you ask. Tried your phrase and it works!

Tried with "Set music alarm, and it plays the default alarm sound only! Reminders work great, as I have now discovered but prefer the voice activation as above. Thanks.
