If you own the Amazon Echo, then you would know that it is quite easy to set this device up. You can do it all by yourself. You get voice prompts from the device itself and then, there is an app that will take you through the setting up process. You can do the registration process in order to have things controlled with the Echo app. Amazon Echo Setup is easy and one can do it on his/her own.
So, that’s not a problem for anybody I guess. The real problem is when Amazon Echo talks to the BT Home Hub and every single information that you hear is wrong, thus causing the registration process to stop. How did one make out if the registration process has stopped? Well, there is a progress bar in the application that stops somewhere in the middle. Moreover, the person will get the notification from Echo itself that it wasn’t able to register itself.
Now, if you are facing the same problem in your Amazon Echo, then I would like to tell you that there is a simple fix for this issue. You just have to press some numbers on your mobile phone and get Amazon Echo Help for this particular issue.
