Volume & Control

Volume: Adjust the volume by saying, "Alexa, set the volume to 4." Please do not exceed volume 4 to avoid disturbing guests in the top apartment.

Check Volume: You can check the current volume by saying, "Alexa, what is the volume?"

Power Off: To shut Alexa down completely, you can say, "Alexa, stop."

Do Not Disturb: Activate Do Not Disturb mode to block notifications by saying, "Alexa, turn on Do Not Disturb." Turn it off by saying, "Alexa, turn off Do Not Disturb."

Privacy Concerns

We understand that some guests might feel uneasy about having a device that is always listening. Rest assured, Alexa only listens for the wake word ("Alexa") and does not record or transmit conversations unless activated. If you prefer, you can minimize interactions by using the Do Not Disturb mode. Just say, "Alexa, turn on Do Not Disturb" to block notifications and interactions.

Feel free to explore and ask Alexa anything you need. If you have any questions or need further assistance with the Echo Pop, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Enjoy your stay and have a wonderful time exploring Chania!
