What to do if Alexa Reminders Are Not Working?

Several users have reported concerns about their Alexa reminders not working. They tried different ways to get the issue fixed but got nowhere close to solving the problem. Since they are not able to get their reminders to work properly, they have been quite frustrated.   

Don’t stress any further. We have rounded up the precise ways you can try to fix if your Alexa reminders are not working. The following list contains thoroughly explained solutions to facilitate you:

Try Restarting Your Echo Dots

Just like we restart a laptop or our smartphone if it lags, sometimes when you face certain issues with your Alexa, all you need to do is restart it too. We have read much such feedback from users that restarting their devices helped them fix the problems they were having.

Hence, we recommend you try restarting your device. It most certainly isn’t a guarantee of resolving the issue you are facing, but still worth trying. To restart your Echo device smoothly, simply unplug the device and then plug it back in right away.

If you still cannot get it to work properly, the next thing you can try is resetting the device. This might also result in troubleshooting and getting your Alexa reminders to work smoothly.

Check Your Settings

Another way to fix your Alexa reminders is to go through the device settings of your Alexa app. Once you get to the settings in the app, check if you have set the time and date correctly on your phone. It is a key step since the time and date are synced with the Echo. Then click on ‘Devices’ in the Alexa app and then select Echo & Alexa.

After this, you will need to select the Dot that was facing issues and got to sounds. Then you should make sure if the default volume is rightly set. Now, adjust the volume accordingly, specific to alarms, timers, notifications, and reminders. Of course, your issue must be resolved by now but let’s say it doesn’t then proceed on to the next step.

Contact Customer Support

If none of the ways mentioned above work to fix the issue, we recommend you contact the customer service team as a last resort. The customer support will then contact the team of experts on the subject and suggest some steps to troubleshoot that might help you fix the issues you are facing.
