How to FORCE Echo to Update to the latest Software Version


Hi there my name’s Vince from my mate Vince comm and in this blog today I’m going to show you how you can force your Amazon echo dot all your Amazon echo to upgrade to the latest software so normally it will do this automatically and often it will do it overnight when it doesn’t have any interruptions but in this instance here I’ve just bought this and I want to set up multi-room audio and I can’t because it keeps saying here on this particular second echo dot it keeps saying that firmware update is required and it’s not updating itself but I want to do it now so I can get on and do all the testing and set it up well this is really easy to do all you have to do is press the mute button and then just leave it for around 30 minutes and then it should update itself so the mute button is just this one here that looks like a microphone with a line through it and I’m just going to press it and then what will happen is you’ll get the red ring around the top and right now it’s not listening to me and it’s not going to get any interruptions so now it should force it to do the update now the time right now is 1146 so what I’m going to do is I’m going to fast-forward through the video and we’ll see how long it takes you so I has taken over 30 minutes to update itself but a long last it has so now if I go to the Alexa app if I go down to multi room music you can now see that under the second echo dot it just says online it doesn’t say that the firmware update required so right now I can group them together and do my multi room music so there you go it is actually quite easy to force the echo to update itself it just takes a little bit of time so I hope you enjoyed the blog please give it a thumbs up if you liked .
