Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: REMOTE CONTROL

Amazon used to include a remote with the Echo 1st gen. Since then, the remote is no longer included. They were in such short supply back then that people were selling them for up to $100 each on Ebay. Now you can buy them for $20 on Amazon --> https://www.amazon.com/Alexa-Voice-Remote-Amazon-Echo/dp/B01E9AHU8Q/

As Thomastoo pointed out, you can get it (used) on Woot for $9. Woot is owned by Amazon and primarily sells refurbished, discontinued, or limited production items.
Here it is on Woot --> https://electronics.woot.com/offers/alexa-voice-remote-for-amazon-echo

No, the Fire Stick remotes do not work with the Echo devices.  If you go to the Woot website though and look under electronics, portable devices, they are selling the Echo remotes for about $9 I think.

Why don't you de-register them that are one one account and re-register them all on the same account?

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Alexa won't respond when playing music

I just got an Echo Dot. When I tell Alexa to play music then try to interrupt by saying "Alexa" she ignores me. The only way I can get her to respond is to pause the music on my phone. How do I fix this?

that is why I use bluetooth and have the speaker across the room. it is not that alexa ignores you, it is just that it cannot hear all the time when music is too loud.

That's what I did to fix it.

PS: In the morning, when the kids awake, I'm gong to listen to that song. It must be a good one to cause you to order unlimited music over ;)

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Disable curse word beeps?

Yes, just don't use them in front of Alexa or children!

Good grief, what a question.  Fortunately, this seems to be a built in feature we cannot disable.  Many of us need constant reminders to clean up our speech.  Appreciate that Alexa is helping you in this way, too.

They're just words. Get over it. Curse words are necessary and we use them to make a (insert curse word here) point.
