Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Echo Dot with Clock problem

I have been getting the message "which device" more often too.  a couple of times unplugging the echo dot for a bit helped.  but then I also had to rename a couple of devices too.   maybe changing the name of the clock will help.

Hi scottrods,

I prefer to sleep with the bedside echo dot with clock with the display off, even with automatic brightness dimmed, it is quite bright.

The point is, the alexa voice command for switching off the clock display was working fine for months and last night it just started having amnesia about Alexa commands and the Alexa question back "which device?" never happened before this morning?,  so obviously Amazon have changed something or it is an inherent bug!

Very annoying.

When it asks "Which device" you should answer "Duh!... the one with the clock display"... LOL

Seriously though. I feel stupid for asking but why do you turn off the clock display? Seems to kill the purpose behind having it. I have multiple Echo Dot Clocks. They're not terribly bright at night. Since I wear prescription glasses, I find it hard to read the display even when I need to. We use the Timer function quite a lot as well, but not while laying down to sleep.

I'm game for a reason though. Just seems odd to buy a clock display only to shut it off...

Amazon Echo Discussion / Echo Dot with Clock problem

I have had the Echo Dot with clock for some time now. To turn off the clock display, one needs to say "Echo (this is my wake word for it) "Clock Off" or "Display Off".

Overnight it seems to have a problem arisen!. If I command "Echo Clock Off" it now says "which device" ?. If I answer "Bedroom Clock" it says "this device does not support that command" !!

This has happened over the last 10 hours (overnight). I have deregistered the Echo Dot Clock, but problem still exists?

you can with auto, buds and frames.   not sure if you can without those devices.   you can try turning off wifi and data and see if it works.

Alexa Tips & Tricks / Re: Consecutive Commands

I'd add that some of my devices don't work with follow-up mode. My dots do not. My 8" show does but only if both command beginning and ending sounds are enabled. Very irritating.

I have the Alexa app on my android phone (Galaxy S10) and I'm wondering if there's a way to have her place a call using my cell minutes rather than a VOIP call.  This is something I could do with Google Assistant and with Bixby, but I haven't find a way with Alexa.  Is it possible?

When trying to play music from your hard drive via multi speakers through the house on the same network, do you set up a Group or a Speaker Group?
