Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Commands within reminders

I contacted customer service and Alexa can't do this. They said they would look at it as a possible future improvement.
Echo Tips & Tricks / Re: Message or call my kids (different house)

I'm not sure because I've never tried such a thing.

Are they all linked to the same Amazon account or do your kids have their own Amazon accounts ?
If they have a smartphone and their own Amazon account and you are in each other's contact list and you enable to Drop In on each other, that should work I guess.
That's a lot of "if" though :-/
Echo Tips & Tricks / Re: Consecutive Commands

It's called "follow up" mode.
May I add that it is located in the Settings of each of your Echo device.
Echo Technical Support / Unable to play a TuneIn radio
« Last post by Jerome on August 16, 2019, 05:38:40 am »
I am trying to launch a specific TuneIn radio on my Echo device to no avail.
Latina :
Vocally, Echo either does not understand or launches a different radio.
I tried through a routine but cannot find the right name to type that corresponds to that radio (tried, "Latina", "Radio Latina", "Latina radio")
Therefore my question is :
is there a trick/workaround to launch (vocally / routine /other) a specific TuneIn radio that has a confusing/complicated name to Alexa ?
I tried to do that a long time ago but it was not possible to enjoy a Spotify Family subscription for instance in the same household if the Echos are all under the same Amazon account.
I'm afraid it's still not possible  :'(
In my house we each have an alexa device (Me, My brother, My dad) but as all of these echo devices are connected to the same spotify account only one of us can play music off spotify at once. As we all have our own spotify accounts is there a way we can connect the individual echo devices to our separate spotify accounts while still being part of the same network?

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Smart Plug skill enable
« Last post by Clay L on August 15, 2019, 11:23:45 am »
Update. Using GeekSquad instructions ( I was able to add the Google Play app to my Kindle Fire 7 tablet and download and install the Smart Life app.  (The Smart Life app is not available in the Amazon app store.) Then I was able to register and discover the Gosund smart plug.
But still when I tried to enable the Alexa Smart Life skill I got a "User name or password not valid" notice.
I clicked on "Forgot Password" and was sent a verification code that when entered enabled the Alexa skill.
So all is well now.
Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: New Router--Alexa Can't Find My Station

Also, look at the settings for the Music portion of your Account, there is a setting that will allow you to "turn off" music with foul language. If that setting is chosen, some stations (even ones that do not play bad language music) can be eliminated from availability. You can actually read that in the settings if you take a look. Don't know if this would help or not, but Just something I saw recently in settings.

I could verbally ask for my favourite stations with absolutely no luck. But once I entered them on the website, I had no problems.  Worth a try.

I can get my Alexa devices to play either station from TuneIn.  A new router should have no affect on which stations can play.

Of course it shouldn't make a difference. It hasn't before when I changed routers. It has this time, though, which is why it's so puzzling.
