Customer Question
friend was over and tried...
My daughter (12 years old) has an Echo Dot. Recently a friend was over and tried to connect their phone to it in order to play music. Since then, my daughter can't get the Echo to play anything from her spotify account. Alexa says to connect the spotify account using the Alexa app. We have done that, yet when we ask to play spotify, Alexa still doesn't see the spotify account. When I asked my daughter how she set it up initially, she said she didn't do anything and it just worked.Can I re-set it somehow? I have reconnected the phone to it, but that didn't seem to help. Any other thoughts on how to correct this?

Hi my name is ***** ***** I am a certified computer and network tech. I believe that I can be of assistance to you. So to make sure I understand correctly your Echo will not play your daughters Spotify account after having another device connect to it?

Here are the instructionsTo reset your Echo device:
Use a paper clip (or similar tool) to press and hold the Reset button. You can find the Reset button at the base of your device. ...
Wait for the light ring to turn off and on again. ...
Open the Alexa app to connect your device to a Wi-Fi network and register it to your Amazon account.
