Wow, here's what I see on the Alexa app on Android. Hard to believe it's the same app. Notice all the nothing.
(And, no, "More" just goes back to the setting screen.)

It looks like you are in "when this happens". I was talking about " add action".

Yup, that's because I completely misread the first post of yours I responded to about this.
So never mind!

Some time ago, Amazon announced a feature to prevent the wrong device from responding to voice commands. It was supposed to acoustically determine the nearest of the devices on that account, and only have that one respond. My thought at the time was "That should have been there from the beginning! But, better late than never." It didn't seem to work all that well, for a time I resorted to the unacceptable work-around of changing the wake word on one of my devices. But I figured, well, it's non-trivial tech, so give them time. Eventually it seemed to work better! Then a short while later Alexa started occasionally following up her responses with something like "By the way, I'm trying to get better. Did the correct device respond?" Wow, I thought, that was very cool! Actual work on improvement! Maybe even machine learning! Kudos!
Now, for the last few weeks, I'm back to facing right at my Dot 4, speaking in a quiet conversational voice standing 3 feet from it in my kitchen, and 6 out 10 times, the blue light won't even react, but the Dot 2 in the living room 15 feet behind me, and hidden by a couch cushion me answers immediately. IT'S STARTING TO DRIVE ME BATTY!
I take back every defense I thought of when OtinG insulted Amazon firmware devs!
Amazon forums are replete with similar complaints, and bursting with no help at all from Amazon.
