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.

Can both Echo Dots play different things at the same time in different locations

Can both Echo Dots play different things at the same time in different locations? I have one at my home and one at my office. My wife likes to listen to music from our prime music account and I like to listen to podcasts in my office. (at the same time) Is this possible and how do i set that up? Thanks

That depends on your music provider. If you are a Prime member and only use the included (free) Prime Music, you can only stream to one device at a time. If you try to stream on another device, it'll ask if you want to stop streaming music on the first device. If you have the Amazon Music Unlimited plan (not free), it can stream music to multiple devices at the same time. On the other hand, if your wife listens to Prime Music and you listen to another provider, say Pandora or IHeartRadio, they are from difference sources. And thus there are no restrictions on that. If you have two other Echo devices and stream music from Spotify and TuneIn, you could be playing 4 different music streams from 4 different providers at the same time. Each providers have their own rules on how many devices can play at the same time.
