Hi, I don't know if anyone else has noticed their echo dropping out whilst streaming, at first I thought it was the internet itself, as this was fine. I was left baffled. I think the echo is chasing after every Bluetooth enable car as they pass. This quite an issue as I live in a tourist area, it is so much more busy at this time of year. I set my echo up outside of tourist times so didn't notice. The odd drop out I put down to quality of streaming. It is driving me mad, anyone know how I can prevent echo trying to lock on to the Bluetooth of passing traffic.
I am not using any Bluetooth devices with my echo. It is standalone and connected via wifi router. It seems that a friend locally is having the same issues with her dot. It can only be Echo picking up passing Bluetooth enable vehicles. I have tracked this occurance and its timing
@Moon: Have a look at your Alexa setup. You can turn Bluetooth ON or OFF. If it is OFF then it is OFF. Your device will not look for, search, seek, scan or care a tinkers cuss about passing Bluetooth anything :)
My apologies, your post raised the topic of Bluetooth and therefore I answered your post.
The same holds true for your friends DOT. If the Bluetooth option id turned off then - honestly it is off.
Perhaps consider contacting Amazon using the free HELP link at the bottom of every page and working with their help team to see if there are any other settings you need to examine or turn off :)

My Alexa has started dropping out as well. If you ask it anything when it has dropped out the blue circular light comes on but it says nothing. I’ve checked my Alexa app and it says it is connected to WiFi but it won’t do anything. Then you leave it for a while and it starts working again. Really irritating !
