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.

Help with a connect problem
« on: July 30, 2022, 09:05:20 am »
Anyone know how to stop Alexa announcing a call without her hanging up on the person calling? I asked her to stop as I wanted to be able to hear my phone and she promptly hung up on my husband. I don't mind the announcement but I do want to be able to quieten the announcement without hanging up on the person calling. TIA Becca

are you linked to a phone carrier in the alexa app?     If so, you can answer using alexa and not the phone by saying: Alexa answer call.   

Or you can pick up your phone and answer like normal.   It should stop the announcement.   I do not think there is a way to do what you want other than tell alexa to lower the volume.
