hi all, hope you all had a great christmas, son has decided I needed new technology so has bought me a Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation, click here so setup and linked to laptop, tablets and phone, unlike him I don't have the latest gadgets, ie smart tv, my query is when I switch laptop, tablet etc., on or off, the echo dot notifies me of this, as if I didn't know, after all I have switched the things on/off, how do I turn this notification option off, all help and advice appreciated

I don't have one but according to an article I read go to your Alexa app, click the top left button, Settings, Notifications and see if you have an option to switch offthe annoying notifications?

thanks difarn, gone to alexa app on all 3 devices but no option under settings & notifications, think I will either put up with it or remove laptop from alexa list, I could mute but the would defeat the object of having the unit
