Think it's linked to Prime music which isn't available here.
Could be mistaken on that though.

Is there a way to get the Echo to play Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc. but to exclude their Christmas songs?

Why don't you make a play list of what you want and play the play list?

I didn't know a playlist was possible. I had googled earlier but nothing like that came up.

Hope this helps anyone having the same issue I was.
Ok... Just expanding on this a tad

Had exactly the same problem but using windows 10

Chrome is the my browser of choice and when I used this I still had a blank white screen

Switched to Edge and is linked perfectly

Anyone else here use Deezer on there Echo and have issues looking for a particular Artist. Like if i say "Alexa...Play calvin Harris" and it never seems to find anything(For any artist) but when it comes to alexa play music it plays flow as normal. Any suggestions on how to fix this to look for artist of even song?

Works fine for me.
Could try changing the default music service to amazon and then back to Deezer?

Does anyone have any issues with Alexa forgetting reminders?

I had set one up to remind me every day at 8pm to give a child some medicine (I usually remember anyway).
It used to remind me on the device and also a push notification on my phone but now it's just decided to stop for some reason.

This isn't the first time.

I can still see the reminder as active in the app

I got it sorted,it kept saying back “I could not find that in deezer” to artists like avicii,Calvin Harris and Coldplay,

Looked at this Website and changed the language to English is and it’s working again...must be a bug on the uk part.

I see Amazon announced a new Echo Show 5

Decent price and 25 pounds off if you order now

Tempted to buy at this price - wondering if it can integrate Google Nest and Drayton heating systems

I already have Hue and Blink Cameras would be nice to be able to have a complete hub to control them all
