What is the Kids Echo dot?
The Kids Echo dot uses Amazon’s FreeTime subscription. FreeTime allows parents to use a dashboard to control their children’s technology use, including which content they can access and the times they can access it.
Why doesn’t AskMyClass work on the Kids Echo dot?
AskMyClass is designed as a teacher’s helper. We account-link to your Amazon email so you can do things like set up a class name picker or create your own activities.
How can I switch between FreeTime and AskMyClass?
It just takes switching a button on or off in your Alexa app. Here’s how:
Open your Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet
Open Menu (top left) > Settings > Device Settings (select your device)
Scroll down and select FreeTime > toggle between “Enabled” and “Disabled”
“Enabled” = Kids Echo FreeTime is on, which won’t allow AskMyClass
“Disabled” = you can access AskMyClass
