Since last week I have had a problem with my Echo Dot's
I have one upstairs and one downstairs and they were working perfectly, but last week I asked Alexa downstairs to play "heart peterborough radio" and she played it...... but on the upstairs Dot... again I asked her to play one of my playlists and she played it..... but again upstairs.
It never used to do this.....she normally plays the music on the device on which I ask it... as it should be.
I ask her "play my playlist downstairs" so she says "playing your playlist on the downstairs lights" ...... ummmm no Alexa, they are plugs not a dot, you cant play it on them!!
I don't want to ask her to play music on a specific dot or on the downstairs lights (Since renamed Betty!!) ... just the one I ask it to!
Which music streaming service are you using? If you are using one of Amazon's offerings you might be limited to playing music only on one device, e.g. the £3.99 plan is for a single device, so music will play on the "default" device.
I have amazon Prime so I am using the amazon music (but not the unlimited) and I play the radio using Tunein ... They will both play on both Dots if I ask them to play "everywhere" so unfortunately it isn't just limited to the single device... thank you though. .
Just confused as it was working fine up until last week... it is if I ask "downstairs" to play the music or the radio that it plays upstairs...asking from upstairs does as it should and plays it upstairs
I have a feeling a setting has changed somewhere and I am not sure what..... I shall search through the App and see what I can find
Blueofthenight, I just want it to do what it was doing last week and playing the music/radio on the device it is asked to.... The device upstairs is in my room, so I keep getting Jim Reeves blasted at me whenever my mum asks her to play it and that I don't want
I have a routine set up for mornings with the weather and my commute to work, so I know about routines
And exactly... I want Alexa to do exactly that, if I ask the downstairs Alexa to play the radio then I want it to play I device I asked it to (as it has always been since I got them) and not how it is now and it autmatically plays it upstairs
The thing is I never used to, up until a week ago... when I asked it to play it it played on the device I asked it on.. why has that suddenly changed? everything else happens on the device I ask on and I dont have to specify so why not mucic and radio (when it used to)
