The new Amazon Echo Auto

(JIm) #21

I just received my Echo Auto. Got it set up ok. Now I want to also pair it to my wifes phone. But can’t seem to figure out how to do that. I have searched the help and it says it can be done, but doesn’t say how.

Does anyone here have any ideas?

You may want to contact Amazon support :slight_smile:

Well, apparently it can’t be done. I contacted support and that is what they said. So when my wife drives the car she is out of luck. I know that will make her happy…:frowning:

Weird - when I Googled it (because that sounded like misinformed / undertrained support), the search preview implied that you could, but I couldn’t find it on the live help page. Here’s what the cached version says - seems worth a try.

You found more than I did. I will try the 8 second thing. But I’m wondering if that then disconnects my phone…

That worked. It will now connect to either phone. If I read correctly if both phones are there it will connect to the one last connected to.

Apparently the support guy didn’t know much. Thank you for finding that instruction.

That’s how every BT device in my orbit works, so it was surprising that something with an obvious application to multiple devices would be so limited. Glad it got solved.
