I was using my Echo Dot 3rd generation as a speaker for my Mac Mini. Lately, it's taken to announcing every time that it's "Playing from <device name>" when I play sound or a video that has audio. It's super-annoying. I know it's not primarily intended as a speaker, but that's what I want to use it for. It hadn't been doing this in the past, I can only assume that it did an OTA update to the firmware in the device. This is a regression as far as I'm concerned. I don't want to switch, but I might have to. In that case, I won't have an Echo device connected at all, I'll use a different Bluetooh speaker.
Is there a way to disable that announcement?
Also apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum, there's no specific category for Echo devices in the drop-down.
