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.

Using Two Echos in different homes with the same Amazon Account
« on: November 27, 2020, 04:06:18 pm »
I want to purchase an Amazon Echo for my mother for Christmas - and I want her to be able to take advantage of my Amazon Music Unlimited subscription.

My question is - is there a way for me to set up my Amazon account on her Echo, for her to listen to my unlimited music and make herself reminders BUT have those reminders be separate from the ones I make? Even though they're on the same amazon account

There is an Amazon Music Unlimited plan for a single Echo device for $3.99/month.

There is also a Family Plan that can be used by 6 separate accounts for $14.99.

If you are wanting to share your account, you could do that but you'd share everything that is attached to your account. That includes Amazon Music, credit cards, purchases/orders, contacts, control over smart devices, etc.

It sounds like you only want to share the music. To do that, you would need to get the Amazon Music Unlimited Family
Plan.

Right, but is there a way to let an Echo have access to an Amazon Music Unlimited family plan...but not have access to the other things.

Only by using the Family unlimited plan.  The regular music unlimited plan will only allow 1 device at a time to stream, i.e. if your mother was listening you couldn't - unless you stopped hers.  The Family plan allows up to 6 separate devices to stream from different accounts - but your most cost effective option is to set her up her own account and get the $3.99 per month plan for her.
