Alexa uses Amazon streeming music channels. If you ask for songs by Beyonce that is what you get. Like youtube. So some stations you ask for can't be recognised. If for example you ask for BBC radio York and then ask for the name of the station you will ger "MMM I don't know that one".

Amazon Echo Discussion / Setting mulitpul routeens for multipul lights.
« Last post by Pablo56 on April 04, 2021, 08:18:32 am »
 Have 3 LED smart lights. I wasn’t to set a schedule for living room. I go to devices and select lights. I have 3
Bedroom, Bathroom and living room. I Pick Livingroom. It says power is off and has brightness and couloir.

Problem is, if I select create a routine it shows me lots of routines not related to this light. I am confused now because I thought that I would only see the routines related to Livingroom.

To make things worse if I click on any routine it does not show which device it is linked to. This means I could accidently transfer a route to another device.

Echo Technical Support / Re: Questions about getting my L-2338 Alexa Echo Dot working

If you are using a Samsung Galaxy S3, you should know that phone is a decade old. Whatever version of Android it is running is most likely outdated, defunct, and no longer supported. It would be no surprise if the Alexa app is not supported on whatever old version of Android the S3 uses. That means you won't be able to download or install the official Alexa app from Amazon. If you somehow manage to sideload it to your S3, it's probably not going to work anyway.

I have something like 15 echos in my everywhere group but I have heard that there is a limit if all the echos are the same model/generation. When editing music groups I have run into trouble at times. Deleting the group and setting it back up has always worked. If all else fails call the echo help department at amazon.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Can't add 5th device to group
« Last post by hallman on April 03, 2021, 11:59:47 am »
I cannot add a 5th device to a group (for multi-room sound). Four devices works fine. The 5th device is greyed out. Clicking the "i" on the right displays "Check network connection." All devices are on the same network. If I take a device out of the group, then I can add the other device. So I can change the devices in the group, but not get all 5 in it. It appears that there's a max of 4 devices in a group but I cannot find that stated anywhere. Is there a way to get all 5 in the group?

Echo Technical Support / Questions about getting my L-2338 Alexa Echo Dot working
« Last post by mikerho on April 02, 2021, 10:41:14 pm »
Here are the two questions:
1) Do I absolutely have to have a cell phone for Alexa Echo Dot to work on my computer?
2) My phone is a Galaxy SIII (S3).  When I searched for the app in the Play Store, all it would find was how to setup and other helper apps.  Does this mean my phone does not support the main Alexa Echo Dot app?

Answers to these should either get me going or not waste any more time!

I listen to various radio stations on my Echo and they usually have their own skill.  Sometimes I use the MyTuner skill.

What do I say to get Alexa to tell me the name of the station that's playing?



(I don't use Tunein.)

not possible but you can change  the wake name to computer, amazon, or echo.
