I have a bunch of echoes at home and I send an announcment to all echoes. Like I would with “Alexa, announcement…”.
For that, I send the Text to the textCommand-channels:
items.getItem("AMZ_EchoOffice_TextCommand").sendCommand("Announcement: Front door is open since 5 minutes");
All of the echoes get this message, but Alexa says: “Announcement from Echo Office: Front door is open since 5 minutes”.
It’s merely cosmetic, but I’d like to let her say “Announcement: Front door is open since 5 minutes”. so, is it possible or does amazon not allow this?
PS: I know, I can send the text to each echo seperately, but I’ve got 6+ echoes and to send six “textToSpeech”-channels it’s easier and more streamlined to use a announcement for all.
