Hey there @NikosMets

 

Thanks for reaching out here in the Community, and welcome 🙂

 

We'd first recommend making sure that the option to Show local devices only is off in the app's settings.

 

You could also try deleting the Everywhere group and then re-add it. 

 

Keep us posted on how it goes.

i cannot delete the group everywhere because is not visible to me.

when i try to create a new group named "everywhere" i get a message : this group is already in use.

Hey @NikosMets,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

In this case it might be worth a try to re-link your accounts as described here. You can also clear the cache on your Amazon app.

 

Let us know if that helped.

Hi again @NikosMets,

 

Thanks for trying and keeping us posted.

 

Try restarting your router by unplugging it from power for a few seconds and plugging it back in. If that doesn't make any difference, could you try setting each speaker individually instead of a group and let us know if they appear that way?

 

Keep us in the loop.

Hi there @NikosMets,

 

Thank you for your reply and confirmation.

 

Can you perform a clean reinstall of the app? This will make sure there's no old cache files causing this.

 

If that doesn't do the trick and you have an SD card we suggest that you uninstall the app > turn off your phone > take out your SD card > turn on the phone again (without the SD card) > reinstall the app since the card can be corrupted.

 

Keep us posted 🙂

Take care!
