Angelo!


Thank you for giving me the website.  Do you know that I need to do to be able to change the WiFi settings when I'm on the site?  I have a whole new wireless router.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When you get to the orange light step press and hold down the button with the little dot in the middle for around 8 seconds and you should get a message from the device saying it's in set-up mode.  Unfortunately you now have to use the Amazon Alexa app.  The Alexa. amazon.com website is no longer available.  Are you using an iPhone or a different phone?  Is this an Echo Dot or which Echo device is it?

Hi Group:


I have a question about WiFi and Alexa. I had to change wireless
routers because mine didn't have a good connection so I had a new one
installed tonight and currently, my echo isn't working. I tried to fix
it on my own but I couldn't. It kept telling me to look for the orange
light and I'm total so couldn't see it. Could someone please give me
simple but detailed directions on how to change my WiFi so it can be
back on line? I have the same password but a different router and have
no idea how to get this corrected. Any help on this would be greatly

If you have a land line, you can get a device called “Echo Connect.”

This is a little box that connects to your phone.  You can use Alexa to call, and when your phone rings she will announce the caller.  You can then say Alexa answer.”  She will answer.  She is now a hands free speaker phone.

Hi Angelo & List,
 
I'm terribly sorry, my most sincere apologies!  I've been trying the Alexa Amazon webpage for over 2 weeks with various browsers and every browser gave me the same, Page can't be found, message, but this happened to several others I know as well.  I was sent a URL stating the only way to access Alexa / Echo devices was now only through the app.  About 1 hour ago I tried with IE11, and no go, but I then tried with Chrome, and hot damn, success!  You can access it these 2 ways, maybe more but these are the 2 links I had success with:
 
 
 
Again my most sincere apologies.  Note:  read the links character by character, don't insert the, .www, before alexa or echo or you'll get a page not found message, at least I did and don't use IE11, or I should say IE11 didn't work for me.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Re: Receiving a call on your Alexa or Google device?

Peter Spitz
 

So I have a follow-up question. I have zero experience with the Echo
devices. If I buy an Echo Dot and put it in my bedroom, can I have
the Echo Connect in my office connected to the VOIP phone system and
make calls from my Dot in my bedroom? Would I be able to add more
Dots and make calls from different rooms in my house?

Thanks for your answer in advance!

Re: Receiving a call on your Alexa or Google device?

You're going to have them know your contacts or you can also just dictate the number.

Another cool thing is that if you are calling a business and it's one of those places where you have to press one for this or two for that or whatever, you can say Wake word, and then say press whatever number.

It doesn't sound like the alarm or the timer. To call someone you say Wake
Word call name of person in your Alexa contact list. When you are done you
say wake word end call.

Sounds wonderful!



Would an alert sound like the alarm or timer?



How does the person who is calling you address the call to your device?



Thanks very much!

You get an alert when someone is calling you on your amazon Alexa device. I
have a dot third Generation or a Show 5 in every room and I get calls
routinely. I hear an alert and I say Wake Word answer and then the
individual comes on just like it is a speaker phone.

Hi List, I know that you can tell either the Alexa or the Google device to
call a particular phone number, but I have not been able to figure out if
it is possible for someone to call you and have it come through your
device.



When I Googled this question, I have found links that say that they will
talk about making and receiving calls with these devices, but never really
answers the receiving part. All it says is something about the green glow.
So, does this mean that we who are without sight, cannot receive calls,
since we won't know that we are getting one?

If they told their device to call you, it would ring your land line or cell
phone.



I would like to know this for times that my iPhone is having trouble.



Thanks for any help to understand this.



Sincerely, Vicky V

I’m sorry Merv, apparently, I’m not making myself clear.  What I am wondering is how would a person get their device to call my device? Since they cannot use my phone number, because that would of course go through to my phone and would not affect my device in any way.
