Alexa Across the Pond (Europe) / echo auto using wifi??
« Last post by pootler on January 15, 2022, 08:32:43 am »
HI - me again :-)

I have an echo auto.

Can it be used with a wifi network instead of mobile data?

In the car I sometimes find the screen of my phone a bit small - especially for  things like navigation.

As a way of getting a bigger screen on my car I would like to install the alexa  app on my android 10'' tablet,

The tablet will connect to the alexa app using bluetooth for audio /calls, but use my mobile in hotspot mode for music/navigation data, etc.??

I know this can be done with a dot, but how about the echo?

Many Thanks

It’s called ‘Popular List items’, the idea being that you tap on an item in the comprehensive list of groceries rather than typing it manually. Or, you could simply say “Alexa, add xyz to my shopping list.”
try disable food and recipes in the alexa app under alexa preferences.   
In the Alexa app/shopping screen on my Galaxy S20fe.. When I hit "Add Item" to the shopping list, It pops open a "Suggested For You" screen that has icons and a list of grocery items. I want to eliminate this screen. I found a setting that said "Hide Suggestions", but that did not make it go away. The problem with the screen is, if I am trying to input different items I cannot doublecheck what I have it already entered on my shopping list. I have to go out of "Add Item" to make it go away.
It has really taken the usefulness out of this part of the app for me. There needs to be a check box above this screen to disable in case you do not want it.
Can anyone tell me how to make "suggested for you" screen permanently go away?
Thanks.. Gary
Yup!  Or 3 x 30 min or a single 1hr30min.  Having multiple, smaller, segments makes it easier to add other commands at different time intervals....

Have fun!
Thank you, KyleMW,
I created the routine as you advised -- and because I wanted a 90 minute ON time instead of 60 minutes, I inserted two 45 minute waits before the OFF command.

assume the default is the last music service that was used.   that is why it is best to give the name of the service when regularly using more than one.

once the echo device is working, it makes no difference what device the app is on nor do you even need one.   Itis only needed for settings.

for your laptop you can access alexa settings through your web browser or through the echo app downloaded from the microsoft store.   I do not know the limitations.

I understand that you can setup and configure an Alexa device using a laptop instead of a smartphone but some features would not be supported.
1. What are the Alexa features that won't be available if the Alexa app is installed on a laptop?
2. If my Echo was set up using a prepaid smartphone, can I move the Alexa app to a laptop and remove it from the smartphone?

Thanks for the reply.
Yes, I understand the commands :-)
I have tried making either Spotify or Deezer as default ( i.e not having to say ''from spotify or from  deezer '')
Makes no difference when I then change to the other service by specifing it in the command

Strange eh?
