Please, please, please... please find a way to allow us to disable this message. There are no fewer than three volume controls when I play anything on my computer; the player, the pc and my Alexa device. It is maddening to drop the levels of two to be courteous to those around me, only to hear an obnoxiously loud announcement when connecting or the tone when disconnecting.
This is the only post I could find on this topic, so.. all apologies if it's in the wrong place.
This is not a device specific issue since it relates to Alexa actions based on the devices it is interacting with. I have a Tap and a Dot and I am pretty sure they do the same thing. Whenever either device makes a Bluetooth connection it announces "Connected to Bluetooth" at whatever volume level the speaker was previously set at. So, if I have been listening to music all day at a pretty high volume level, then leave the house for a few hours, when I return really late and the phone reconnects via Bluetooth it blares out in high volume "Connected to Bluetooth" and wakes everyone up. Yes, I know I can adjust my Tap speaker volume to very low manually every time I stop using it but I should not have to do that. I should have the option of either voice prompts announcing OR just a "ding" like most other Bluetooth devices do when they connect to each other.
Reviving this thread in hopes Amazon can do something. This is an extremely disruptive and unnecessary function. Please, please remove this incessant announcement including the "Now playing from desktop...." It announces this every time it gets a system ding or other system sound.
My office Echo SCREAMS the connection to my million-number work laptop name several times a day. I at least tried changing the name of the computer but only sysadmin can do that at my work so I am stuck with it. My Bose speaker never once did that. Going back to Bose. Now.
