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?

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.

Hello, forum!

I Have 2 Alexa Devices (both Echo Studios), with 2 separate accounts, but both respond when talking to them and I'd to change them to be independently responsive. Like, one could be addressed as ALEXA 1 and the other ALEXA 2. Is that possible?

Thanks in advance,

Oz

It's an Amazon Echo Show. I"m not sure what you're asking me since the Echo Show is the only Echo that has a slideshow.

there is more than one model and the software is not the same on all of them.  I have two different shows, one you can change the speed, the other you cannot.  If you don't really want help, that is fine with me.  I am not returning to this thread.

Well, I tried disconnecting bluetooth. I do get audio feedback from Alexa, but it comes out of my phone. I wish there was an easy way to make it output to the built-in speaker. I know what Amazon was thinking. The built-in speaker is just used for making it easier to set up, but was never intended for regular use. But if it's already in there, why not make use of it? Yea, it's a tiny speaker and not very loud. Audio quality is terrible. But it's better than having nothing at all.
