Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Now I'm talking to the microwave
« Last post by jwlv on June 28, 2020, 05:19:23 am »
Oh wow! I didn't even know Amazon made this 4-1 oven. I might have to pick one up. I really like that it has a convection oven and air fryer. Please let us know how you like it after using it a few days, especially if the air fryer is any good. And how well does it make toast.

Alexa New Technology Day 1 Editions / Frames still invitation only
« Last post by renegade600 on June 28, 2020, 03:23:52 am »
Surprised the frames are still invitation only.   Makes me wonder if it will ever be available to all and might be discontinued at anytime.   I hope not - still using it daily.

Is this the one you got?
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07894S727

It looks rather small based on the pictures and some reveiws and only 700W. But the price is certainly good at $59.99. If I were to buy a new microwave, I'd get one that's 1100W-1200W since most cooking instructions for frozen foods, popcorn, etc. are for that power rating. 

I got the other one and it is 1000w so it will only add a couple of minutes when microwaving.  https://www.amazon.com/Introducing-Amazon-Certified-Humans-device/dp/B07XSCBSN5   

I mainly got it hoping to get some counter space in my small apartment  I have both a large toaster oven and a large microwave and hope to get rid of them.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Alexia app and Siriusxm
« Last post by ra53 on June 27, 2020, 10:43:26 am »
Using Echo dot with multiroom controller located in basement. Controlling dot with Alexa app on phone, not voice control. Have no problem with Amazon Music, Pandora ,Iheart or Tunein services. I can browse all channels and select them. Siriusxm is set as a default music source, have all access subscription. Can only select and play channels via voice control on dot. App will then show channel in recently played, but that is all i can control or select from the app. Amazon keeps telling me to disable and enable skill, set as default, but this does not solve the problem. I have same issue with echo located in a shop at another location. Thanks in advance.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Now I'm talking to the microwave
« Last post by renegade600 on June 27, 2020, 10:40:47 am »
The Amazon Echo Microwave was delivered less than an hour ago. Already setup, in fact, it set up itself. I plugged it in, moved the empty box to another room, when I got back, it said it was ready to go. One feature I really like was the clock set itself.  Now it will always have the correct time.   Guess now I wonder if the air fryer is as bad as the reviews say.   That thing is big.  It is almost as big as the Kenmore microwave I bought in 1982 but not near as heavy.

Smart Devices and Gadgets / Re: Alexa Compatible Speaker from Kohlís?
« Last post by renegade600 on June 25, 2020, 10:33:14 am »
best you can do is to get headphones, ear phones or ear buds and connect to your phone either by wire or bluetooth.

Smart Devices and Gadgets / Alexa Compatible Speaker from Kohlís?
« Last post by DIYdee on June 25, 2020, 09:24:53 am »
Please forgive me because I know nothing about any of this. I just know what I want, or want to accomplish at least, and hope someone can kindly help me :)

I listen to Amazon Music on my Echo Dot all the time. But when I am outside, working in the yard and whatnot, I have to resort to using the Alexa app on my iPhone. The problem is, I carry my phone in my apron and barely can hear it with the volume at max.

So I would like to get a speaker so I can listen to my music, but I am unsure what kind it is I need. I just know I do not want something which the battery is drained after 2-3 hours. I also do not want to spend a lot, and prefer something which is as far below $100 as possible. Not looking for anything fancy, just want to listen to my Amazon music and actually hear it!

The catch is, I would like to purchase from Kohlís department store because I have Kohlís Cash and it expires the 28th. I even thought about another Alexa device since their warranty is better than buying from Amazon, but I do not know if there is a waterproof device for what I am willing to spend and do not want to have to remember to take it in/out with me.

Anyone have any suggestions for a speaker or device that will allow me to accomplish this?

Thank you in advance!

Alexa Across the Pond (Europe) / Re: Why can't Alexa find Classic fm?
« Last post by matt762 on June 24, 2020, 02:29:27 pm »
This is because Classic FM is no longer on Tune In Radio. I spent 2 days trying to solve this issue and finally found the solution.
1. On the Alexa App, go to Settings - Music & Podcasts. If Global Player isn't listed in your list of services, add it by clicking on Link New Service.

2. Once you've installed Global Player Service, you must speak the request to play Classic FM exactly as follows:

"Alexa, Ask Global Player to play Classic FM"

Hope this helps.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Echo timed music with Pandora

I synched two Echo's  to play music but the synched group is not listed as a "play from device" option in the routine. Is there any way to set up a routine to play music from a synched group of echos?
