Is there a setting that will ‘connect’ all of my devices in such as way that when I answer one the others will acknowledge it?
In my mind, this should function like a telephone – when I answer one phone, all the phones in the house should stop ringing.
I’m not sure what’s causing this problem for you, but it doesn’t sound like things are working as expected.
My main suggestion would be to unplug your Echo and plug it back in – sometimes a simple re-start works miracles!
If that doesn’t help, my other suggestion would be to only have one Echo device ring when you receive a phone call. To do this, :
- Open up the Alexa app
- Go to the “Devices” tab at the bottom
- Select the device you no longer want to ring
- Scroll down to “Sounds”
- Under “Communications”, turn “Incoming Call Ringer” to “Off”
Hope that helps!
