The A lady!

So Alexa was down for hours today!

Apparently, there was a huge problem all over the world.

Amazon knew about it, but they did not give a reason why it happened, other than, they updated something and broke it.

I came home, tried to ask Alexa the time, and got no response.

I unplugged my Alexa device, reset it, reconnected it to the wifi in my house, still, nothing.

Then on an email group I am a part of for blind echo users, I found out about the problem with the A lady!

So I had to sit tight until she decided to come back on!

In the end, I powered off my device again for about 5 minutes, and when I turned it back on things worked as normal.

Thank creator!

I had been wanting to listen to Spotify!

I couldn’t even do that!

This was the first time there was any issue for me.

I’ve never experienced Alexa not working before or being unresponsive.

Want to know what the weird thing was?

My echo show which is in my living room still worked!

But my echo dot which is in my bedroom wouldn’t work at all!

Granted, the echo dot is a pretty old device now.

Anyway, it is all good, everything now works fine for me.

Me and the A lady are now friends again!

  1. We have echo dots in almost every room of the house. We have them of all ages. They were all unresponsive this morning before church, they all worked after we got home. It’s sort of irritating when you’re used to using her all the time!
