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.

How can I make Alexa stop the music when I have an incoming call?
« on: September 03, 2020, 10:39:23 am »
Hi all,
I am fairly new to Alexa but I have tried different scenarios to solve my problem, including routines or IFTTT.

The scenario is:
I am listening to music via Alexa. I get a call on my phone and Alexa announces it, lowering the volume of the music.

If I answer my phone, Alexa turns up the volume and continues playing music so then I need to shout 'Alexa stop' while on the phone already.
If I say 'Alexa stop' before answering, implying to stop the music, she hangs up the incoming call.

I am hoping to find a trick to have Alexa stop the music when I have an incoming call or when I answer it, without having to say 'Alexa stop' at any time, especially after having answered the call.

Thank you all in advance!

Before answering your phone, say "Alexa pause"
