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't change the wake word
« on: January 09, 2020, 05:35:10 pm »
Hi, I try to change the wake word from Alexa to Echo. On the web, it says to ask directly to Alexa to change the wake word, but the response is to check in Help in the Alexa application. In the Alexa application, it says that the wake word(s) are loading... indefinitely. It can't find other wake words, like Echo. Is the Canadian version of Alexa is different than the US version? Thanks.

if it says to check help, then there is a good possibility you were using the wrong command.    which echo device?

I got the Echo Dot (with clock). In fact, I tried to change the wake word, not by a command, but with the Alexa mobile application. In settings, there is an option "Wake Word" and it shows "loading". Of course, when I go to that page, the page is empty. After a couple of minutes, there is a pop-up saying that it is unable to fetch the wake word, try again later... I tried many times (days) and this option does not work.

I was wondering if it is because I have the application for Alexa Canada or something else. Thank you.
