But when I ask Alexa to play some music in the kitchen, it comes on in the office! How can I fix this so I get music on the device I want it on?
Katherine recently got a suggestion from a VoiceBrew subscriber for how to address this problem – just change the wake word for the different units! This will allow you to call your Kitchen Echo “Alexa” and the Office Echo “Computer”, for example.
Just say “Alexa, change the wake word!” to your Echo. Alexa will prompt you to pick a new wake word for it: Amazon, Computer, or Echo.
Let’s assume you select “Computer” as your Office Echo’s new wake word. The light on the Echo will flash orange briefly, and you’ll be able to talk to Alexa on that Echo by saying “Computer” momentarily.
Problem solved! To talk to Alexa on your kitchen Echo, say “Alexa.” To talk to her on your Office Echo, say “Computer.”
Hope that helps!
