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.

Multi-room Music - Speakers only in one group?
« on: February 10, 2019, 09:15:11 am »
I have one group created, Everywhere, with all Echo devices in it (we have 4). Can I not create additional groups, that only have 2 or 3 speakers in the group? When I attempt to, they are all greyed out.

You didn't specify what kind of group you're talking about. For instance, you can create all the multi-room speaker groups you want.
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.

I mentioned the group type in the title "Multi-room Music - Speakers only in one group?", sorry if that was unclear. Well, if you are correct, something is not working because it will not allow me to select any devices in for a new group.

Are you using the website, android app or ios app? And did you update that app?
Don't know if it makes a difference, but like i said no issues here on android app updated to latest version. On a previous version of the android app you couldn't so better check if you have the latest version.

I was using the website. I just tried on the iOS app and it worked fine. Thanks.

Laurin1, like you, I had no problem creating multiple groups, but each device could only belong to a single group.  For instance, if my Dot was in the "Downstairs" group, it could not be added to my "Everywhere" group because it was grayed out.

Thanks so much for posting your solution.  After months of banging my head against my desk, I tried it from my mobile device instead of the computer and it works perfectly!
