Amazon Echo Discussion / Setting the speaker volume in a multi-room music routine
« Last post by RCF on May 16, 2022, 03:54:56 pm »
I am setting up different routines to play particular Apple Music channels on my echo devices for certain occasions. I have been able to create the separate routines, assign them different command phrases, and get them to play on the speaker groups desired. However, I canít find a way to set the volume in the routine.

The idea is to have different preset routines around the house for morning music, daytime music, dinner music, and get togethers, and assign each an appropriate volume level. Does anyone know how to preset the volume in a multi-room music routine? Thanks!

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Echo and Bluetooth speaker multi-room system?
« Last post by RCF on May 16, 2022, 09:19:23 am »
Nope. Amazon won't let you do multi-room via Bluetooth. I can understand why. There is latency involved when it comes to Bluetooth devices. And every Bluetooth device has a slightly different latency, some very low and some very high. If Amazon allowed you to do this, it would sound like your music is echoing all around the house.

Thanks. You would think after four generations they would have either partnered with a compatible third party manufacturer or come out with their own compatible bluetooth speakers. I would love to be able to set up a group of weatherproof bluetooth speakers by the pool in combination with the house echos for seamless music. It would be great for parties. Perhaps someday.

Can Bluetooth speakers be combined with Echos to create a mutli-room speaker system? If so, what is the procedure? I have only seen procedures for Echo only multi-room systems. Thanks.

There are region restrictions when you take an Echo device from one country to another. What might be available in one country might not be available in a different country. This would apply to music, movies, and even some smart devices such as smart plugs, light switches, etc.

It is also recommended that when you take your Echo device to a different country, you should contact Amazon support to help you reset your Echo device to the new country. You can't do this on your own. Amazon must do it on their side at your request.

To playing music on your Echo Dot, you need to use the Alexa app on your iPhone. Once in the Alexa app, tap the "play" icon at the bottom. Then you can choose something to play.

Smart Devices and Gadgets / Re: Routine with smart bulb - intermittent
« Last post by sumailse on May 10, 2022, 04:49:47 pm »
It might be something wrong with the network that connects the bulbs. Are they connected through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth?
My smart light bulbs from vont.com use a Wi-Fi connection, and I have never experienced any difficulties. Maybe it is because the Bluetooth connection is not powerful enough to keep all the bulbs working?
You should ask a professional electrician because these two bulbs can actually be broken or no-good right from the production site. It is always the same bulb, right? I must be something wrong with it, and you might consider taking it back to the shop and ask your money back.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Echo Dot weekly alarm to playlist on iPhone
« Last post by TerryB on May 10, 2022, 02:33:50 pm »
I have children who need quiet music at nap and I want to set up a weekly alarm that lasts 2 1/2 hrs.
I want to choose a playlist on my iPhone.  *grr*. I just can't figure it out. I followed a link in Apple discussions but there is only a choice for Apple Podcasts.  Why can't I choose a playlist on my phone?
