Hi, just received my new echo be and was trying to set a routine... I'm starting simple and thought this would make a good test but it's not working with voice control. If I hit play from the Alexa app it works fine. So my test was...
Wait 4 minutes
Say brew's up
This seems pretty straightforward to me. Am I missing something obvious? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
My only suggestion is to use a few more syllables for the trigger phrase (make a brew?) to give the Alexa a better chance of recognising it. What happens? Does it do nothing, or do something you weren't expecting?
Just tried it - works here. Add a confirmation too so you know it's running?
Excellent, thanks that worked. I've changed the trigger phrase to "Alexa, make a brew" and added a confirmation before the wait 4 minutes and it worked first time. It wasn't doing anything before. Thank you so much, silly though it sounds I'm so happy I'll no longer have to be disappointed at finding a stewed cup of cold tea in the kitchen. First world problems I know but it was a common problem for me.
