Echo Technical Support / Re: Echo Show 5: How to get it to show the clock face?

The seems to be an issue on their end for sure. ALL of my Echo Shows and the 2 new Show 5's at 2 different locations suddenly have the same issue.

Alexa Across the Pond (Europe) / Whisper mode now available in UK
« Last post by StevenR on September 30, 2019, 02:51:00 pm »
Whisper mode is now available in the UK. Just remember to try it (on each device) before you need to use it for real, since the first time you whisper to a device Alexa tells you that it sounds like you've whispered and explains Whisper Mode at normal volume before whispering the response to the question you asked.

Echo Technical Support / Re: Routine command won't work

Since the names Bryan and Brian are pronounced the same it may be hearing it as Brian, so try "Goodnight Brian" instead.

Thanks everyone for your help and support.  And confirming that I am not nuts, or alone in my frustration.   ;D

I'm now attempting "Night Mode."  Though, just turning it on, didn't help a bit.  So, I have changed the "scheduling," which had the default setting of turning "off" at 4:00 AM.  I changed it so that it would turn "on" at 4:00 AM.

And, well, as I have been sitting here typing this, it went immediately from the clock to the weather display, so that's not a change at all.  Bummer.

Now unplugging to reboot for about the thousandth time.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Multilingual mode : when and where ?

It is not yet available anywhere. I assume Amazon will make a big announcement when it is.
But just a few weeks ago, Amazon gave developers information on how to add languages to their skills. So it should be coming soon. How soon? Well, like anything else Amazon does, you won't find out until the day it happens.

You are not crazy, the clock was fine until late Friday afternoon, then it went bonkers ( a technical term, ha).
 Since it was late Friday and now the weekend, I can only surmise that is why it is still not fixed. Hopefully, Monday things will get noticed and fixed. PRETTY sure it is on their server. We shall see. Shame my workaround didnt help you.
 Hang in there

Amazon Echo Discussion / Multilingual mode : when and where ?
« Last post by Jerome on September 29, 2019, 03:37:43 pm »
"Amazon is launching multilingual mode for its Alexa-supporting devices"
https://techcrunch.com/2019/09/25/amazon-launches-multilingual-mode-for-using-alexa-in-multiple-languages-at-once/

Do you guys know if that feature is already available ?
If so, where to find it in the settings ?
(I have a US Amazon accounts for my Echos)

I hope they do something about it. I've only had it for a week and I swear the clock was fine for the first few days.  :(

 Sorry it didnt work for you. I dont have a Show 5 so I could not test it on it. On the Spot no need to go into the Home & Clock section as it is in the main menu on settings. After you did night mode, did you give it a few to go back to the full clock? Takes a few seconds on my Spot.
 Hopefully, Amazon will get it going after the weekend.

This doesn't seem to work on the Echo Show 5. I went to settings and clicked on "Home & Clock", turned on "Night Mode" and still no large clock face.
