It's a small thing but one thing I love about the echo is when I ask her to do a smart home function like turn on living room lights she just says "ok" and does it, unlike google that then repeats it all back to me "turning on living room lights", it's a small thing but something I really prefer about the echo

Funny, I'm the opposite, I prefer Google's response over Alexa's; to each his own, as they say.

Has anyone received their Amazon Prime code from Telus yet? The order email said it would be emailed to us.

Have people received their echos from Telus? My Canada Post tracking code hasn’t updated since the 4th. Was supposed to receive yesterday but received it yet.

lol. I get 'turning on 16 lights' when I engage my GH. Definitely prefer the 'ok' of alexa.

Anyone managed to make a recurring reminder with Alexa or any work around for it?

We have both GH mini and echo dot and so far we prefer Alexa's reminder as it prompts on the time of the event. But there's no option of recurring events (like on a daily basis). We have to set it every day.

Whereas Google has the option to make a recurring reminder but it sucks that it does not prompt anything on the event itself. you have to ask for it which does not serve the purpose of reminding you.

Alarms can be recurring, but reminders are one time events.

I've received my Telus Echo order (no code yet), but I just noticed that the order charge isn't anywhere in my credit card transaction list (both fulfilled and pending). Anyone have this?

Tried searching and Amazon.COM has lifebot skills but I see it's not available yet here in Canada. I wish there's recurring events available for us here.

How do I get Canadian skills?
I just got my echo on Tuesday and set it up, but it linked to my .com.
I even have Ottawa as address in .com but I can't see any Canadian skills.
Is there a way to switch back and forth between Canadian and US account?

It's always like that when a charge pass from pending to charge it disappears for 1-2 days
