Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: One Echo at a time

pull the power plug on them for over 40 seconds and see if it helps.

I have had a number of Echo devices for some time.  My partner and I call each other (we don’t currently live together) on Echo Show 5s.  This has always worked fine until about 4 weeks ago, when although the calls themselves are successful, our other Echo devices (including iPads/iPhones) continue to ‘ring’ after the Show 5s have been answered.  The other devices show the calls as being from “unknown”.  This issue appears in either direction i.e. irrespective of which of us makes the original call.  Any suggestions please?

Amazon Echo Discussion / One Echo at a time

We have five Echoes, and suddenly the system will only allow one at a time to play music. If someone is working in the garage, and listening to the Echo there, and someone in the master bedroom wants to play music, nothing happens until the Echo in the garage is turned off. Then the command can be given again in the bedroom, and it will work.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Text messaging on Echo Show
« Last post by Hovawart on May 18, 2020, 01:24:18 pm »
Is there a way to send a text message to Echo Show that will display without asking for it? For an elderly person, to see the message when they look at their Echo Show.

I asked Alexa
"What's the Status of *Kitchen*" and she says That function is not supported YET. So I am pretty sure there's not currently a function or command for it YET... patience... we're still beta testers on this AI stuff... It will one day work like that and you will have forgotten you wanted that function...


I tried myself yesterday :-)

From my experience checking status would not be 100 percent accurate anyway.  There have been times when the phone or show 5 showed something was on when it was really off.    I do know a show will give the status on screen after the command is given.  that might be the best option at this time.

Is it possible to prevent the Show 8 from going to sleep after a period of time?

if you are talking about night mode, try going to settings - home & clock - nightmode.  you should be able to disable it there.

Could you please explain what you mean by "goes to sleep"? Mine doesn't, but it does go into night mode - dark screen - in low light. It would also, if I had the camera turned on, put a large clock bottom left if it detected no motion for a while. As I have the camera off it sticks with the small top left clock.

I am assuming night mode is what the op was talking about.

Amazon Echo Discussion / What command to know ON-OFF status of smart plug?
« Last post by xFlip on May 17, 2020, 04:14:56 am »
What command do I use to find out if my Amazon smart plug (in another room) is switched on or off?

My smart plug is Amazon's own brand and does not need a third party app like "ITTT".

The info is in the Alexa app on my smartphone but I don't always have that with me.
