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.

Set defaults for Echo Stereo
« on: June 19, 2020, 04:21:26 pm »
I set up Echo Stereo with two Gen3 Echos and the Echo Subwoofer.  I named the setup "Stereo" (so I'm not imaginative). Very good sound, but I'm trying out Amazon Music Unlimited and it can get a bit tricky to get out:  "Alexa, play classic rock from Amazon music unlimited on Stereo".  Is there a way to set up Amazon Music Unlimited as a default source?  Alexa does just fine with "Alexa, play classic rock on Stereo".  It's harder to get out the longer phrase correctly.  Even worse if I want to request, say, "Beethoven's 9th Symphony" from Amazon music unlimited.

You can set your default source in the Alexa app.

Thanks.  I updated my Alexa App on my Android phone and see that I have Amazon Music set as the default source - will it automatically default to Amazon Music Unlimited because I have the Unlimited subscription?  I'm not offered a choice to add unlimited - when I click on the Amazon Music source it does say "Play all the music you love on your Echo with Amazon Music Unlimited" - if I select "Link New Service" I don't get the choice to link Unlimited.
