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.

Alexa now meows like a cat!!!!! HELP!
« on: April 23, 2022, 12:43:09 pm »
Ever add an Alexa feature you can’t figure out how to turn off? Well my 8 year old did. Now every time I say good morning to Alexa, a loud meow occurs followed by the same “fun cat fact or joke”. fact, it’s not fun and definitely not funny anymore.

B.C. (before cat) the default function of Alexa was as followed. If you said “Alexa, good morning” the response would be “Good morning…” followed by an interesting fact of the day or a joke or something like that. I liked the feature. This again was the default feature, no skill or routine necessary.

Now A.C. (after cat), I can’t find a way to turn it off! It’s not a skill. It’s not a routine. Amazon tech support didn’t have the answer and Reddit and other forums don’t either. The closest I’ve come to is one post saying to say “Alexa, I miss your good mornings”, but she’s “not sure” about that.

Any thoughts on how to bring back balance to the Force would be much appreciated?

We had the same problem and tried everything
 Finally what worked was "Alexa, stop meowing"
Good luck!
