Echo Technical Support / Routine on one Echo doesn't work on another
« Last post by Scott_R on September 06, 2022, 07:17:27 am »
I had an Echo Spot in my bedroom, and had created a two-part "goodnight" routine: it turned off lights in the bedroom, then a custom action turned off the Echo's display ("turn off your display"). Worked just fine.

Some time ago I bought an Echo Show 8. That replaced a Show 5 which I then put in place of the Spot in the bedroom (the Spot was put elsewhere).

The Goodnight routine works, except that just about 1 minute later, the Show 5's display turns itself back on. There is no indication why: it's not accompanied by a sound and the display has no message (just the standard home screen). But if I say "Alexa, goodnight" a second time, the display turns off and doesn't turn back on until the morning wakeup routine.

What's going on?

The concept of (dis/en)able function inside a routine is rather shortsighted as there is no concept of managing a larger set of routines.
Just some thoughts.
A look-up table based format with fields to group and select respective routines to operate.
A comment field to help keep track of particular functional association between routines would be useful. 
Other run conditions could also be listed in abbreviated form so no need to open a routing up for basic setup info.

Is there a way to pause routines while on vacation? I have a bunch of timed ones that happen every day.

Will the routines you have set, cause any issues while you're out of pocket? If not, why not leave them on... As long as no excess wasted energy is happening (Such as Air conditioner routines or the like). Just tag and turn off the routines that are big energy users and enjoy the vacation. Maybe go ahead and set up the Geofencing for the AC to come on when you're in the area returning afterward.
Just a suggestion, maybe not the best... but it was a freebie...

tried using voice commands to do it and it says "ok you can call me computer on this device in a few seconds" and it doesn't change it, this screenshot is what i get when i try to do it manually.

edit: it is an echo dot.

I believe it is only going to be the country your amazon account is in.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Adding the song to My playlist
« Last post by Alex12321 on August 31, 2022, 02:04:37 pm »
Hello
I use spotify premium to play music on my Echo. When I hear song which I like and ask Alexa to add this song into My playlist, she answers: This command is not supported.
Do you know if there is any other streaming service (for example amazon music) which supports this command?
Thank you in advance.
...Alex
