Amazon pushing constant "new" "content" (garbage) to these devices and enabling the sliders by default always has been a thing, but a couple of our 3 shows have been becoming billboards recently. Books, apps, movies, games, skills for sale.... snaking their way on to the screens.
I'm guessing this is the tradeoff for the "news" showing in rotation. Is there any magic setting to stop this out there short of turning everything off?
Now that Amazon has completely FUBARed Amazon Music, I need to migrate all of my MP3s purchased from Amazon (or uploaded years ago when they still allowed you to do that), and use a different music platform, but I'd still like to use the Echo voice commands and output through Echo speakers.
Has anyone connected a NAS to Echo? I'd like to go back to "Alexa, play my songs by Arcade Fire" or whoever, and get just that music I own, instead of Amazon throwing in a bunch of "similar" songs I don't want to hear. I could set up a NAS, upload my MP3s to it, and use an app like Plex to index and play the songs, but it seems that Plex's Alexa integration is pretty dismal. Does anyone have an alternative for playing MP3s that just works?
My Echo Show had started showing two tiny yellow spots in the centre of the screen a month back but not it has developed and spread to the three sides of the screen and the two spots in the centre of the screen has also grown a lot in size. What could be the cause and fix for this?
Just got my first Echo Show (8). Loving it so far but I can’t figure out how to do picture in picture on Netflix. While watching Netflix I also want to be able to look at a recipe. Seems like this should be possible but after much Googling I’m not finding any answers.
Hi so I have an echo dot that I used for a long time and used it to play music on my Sonos speakers. Now I purchased an echo and moved my dot to my guest room. Now I want to play music on my guest room but whenever I use the echo dot to do it, it starts playing on the speakers rather than the echo dot itself. What config I need to change so that echo dot plays the music when I ask to.
I did try renaming it to “guest room echo” and gave commands like “play music on guest room echo” but it still starts playing on the main speakers
