Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: New to Echo family, dealing with Amazon music...
« Last post by AlanH on November 04, 2023, 07:00:04 am »
it sounds like Amazon Music has limited functionality on Alexa devices similar to Spotify. Alexa will happily play my Spotify playlists but I can't browse Spotify as I can in the iOS app.

Echo Technical Support / Connecting Echo Dot 5 to Bluetooth receiver
« Last post by Ridiculoid on November 04, 2023, 12:04:27 am »
 Hi there,
I'm having trouble getting my newly purchased Echo Dot 5 to connect to my Bluetooth receiver (FiiO BTA30 Pro).

I currently have the receiver plugged into an amp to play music from my phone. I am trying to connect the Dot to the receiver so that when the Dot plays music, it will play through the amp. Currently I can only get the Dot to connect to the receiver when I put it into its transmitting mode which doesn't help me as I need it to receive Bluetooth from the Dot..

Has anyone encountered anything similar to this or has an idea of how to resolve it? I am not sure whether the issue is with the Dot of the receiver.

Thanks in advance.

I believe the only way you can do it is through the silk browser and just go to the website.

Amazon Echo Discussion / New to Echo family, dealing with Amazon music...

Hello...we have numerous Alexa devices around our home but I just received and setup our first Echo. The Echo 8 Gen 3. My question is, how do I get to the homepage of Amazon music? I don't want it to bring up the last played or suggestions. Just back to the starting page. Is there an apps page or something I'm missing or is just not possible? Tyia.

Echo Technical Support / Echo Show 8 Can't Connect To The Internet
« Last post by GloomySenpai on October 28, 2023, 12:49:26 pm »
I bought an Echo Show 8 from eBay about three months ago, and it was working wonderfully the first couple of weeks, but the internet stopped working one day. I factory reset it, and now I can't even connect to the internet. It says, "MAC address is unavailable," when I click on the add network button, it does nothing. I called Amazon several times, and they said to do basic things like unplugging the router and plug it back, which didn't work. I tried to do some searching to fix the issue, but no one else had this issue, or I was looking in the wrong places. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Alexa Across the Pond (Europe) / Re: False trigger

Alexa has other names that you can use to get its attention. You can change the wake word in the app.

"Alexa" is the default wake word. Other wake words are: Echo, Computer, Ziggy, Amazon.

Yes, you are right, but only for official Amazon devices.
For other devices that use Alexa API, that is not a straight rule, which is sadů  :(

I actually use the very same soundbar so you are right, you will not be able to change the wake name on it either through the app or via voice.

I didn't know it was possible, and it is a great feature indeed.
Sadly enough, it is not available for my Polk React soundbar (at least from the Alexa app, I will try with the voice command later today)
