This is not a device specific issue since it relates to Alexa actions based on the devices it is interacting with. I have a Tap and a Dot and I am pretty sure they do the same thing. Whenever either device makes a Bluetooth connection it announces "Connected to Bluetooth" at whatever volume level the speaker was previously set at. So, if I have been listening to music all day at a pretty high volume level, then leave the house for a few hours, when I return really late and the phone reconnects via Bluetooth it blares out in high volume "Connected to Bluetooth" and wakes everyone up. Yes, I know I can adjust my Tap speaker volume to very low manually every time I stop using it but I should not have to do that. I should have the option of either voice prompts announcing OR just a "ding" like most other Bluetooth devices do when they connect to each other.
So a year and half have passed since, and this problem has still not been resolved...?
Please, please, please... please find a way to allow us to disable this message. There are no fewer than three volume controls when I play anything on my computer; the player, the pc and my Alexa device. It is maddening to drop the levels of two to be courteous to those around me, only to hear an obnoxiously loud announcement when connecting or the tone when disconnecting.
This is the only post I could find on this topic, so.. all apologies if it's in the wrong place.
YES. This crap is so annoying! I have my dot connected to tap (my favorite of many speaker combos, incl the large echo) BUT my nocturnal neighbor has some weird WiFi/ Bluetooth disrupting crap so any given night there’s a solid chance I’ll wake up to this obnoxious and uselsss notification. Please get rid of it! We know it’s connected, we set it up this way. If it isn’t then it’ll be obvious when sound isn’t coming from BT!
In comparison, the Cortana enabled Harman & Kardon Invoke speaker makes a much more subtle Du~Dü sound when re/connected. That's more like it. This should be configurable as requested!
They will never fix this issue. I just got the run around from customer service for over a week, and in the end they finally admitted there is no way to turn it off and there are no plans to give us that ability. Fine! I demanded and got a refund. There are other smart speakers out there, Bose allows you to turn off audio notifications.
I called amazon today and told me that they cannot do anything about it. This is so annoying. This notification needs to go. What is Amazon doing about it?
This is awful. They could use the lights to indicate a new connection instead of this loud blaring "Connected to Bluetooth".. it's so awful everytime I reboot my computer.
