Anyone else had this come through?

No, all my dots and echo still just have the choice of 3. Would have liked the option of computer, but id probably stick with alexa anyway, especially with the dot near the tv.

Main echo is on 4540. How you do a manual update?

Recently my dots have been a bit crap at recognising words especially when adding events to my calendar. An update might.sort them.

Have never been able to find an answer on Amazon support.

There are several suggestions that may or may not work
1) Disconnect the power cord for 5 mins and then reconnect
2) Tap the mute button and leave muted until it updates. (might be worth trying when not in use for an hour or two).

Personally found that it will update of its own accord and there is no sure way to force an update.

Woke up yesterday and found it will no longer DIM my hive lights.

To determine the current software version for your Alexa device in the Alexa app:

- Open the left navigation panel and then select Settings.
- Select your device and then scroll down until you see Device software version.

I have tried that, software version is way more digits.
