Setting Up Alexa in a Different Location
If you have a new home or apartment, you might be wondering how to set up your Alexa. The first step is to connect the device to your new Wi-Fi network. After connecting, force the device into setup mode by holding the action button. If you are experiencing difficulty in setting up your Alexa device, you might need to reset it. In most cases, setting up your Alexa device is simple and easy.
After resetting the device, you can reconfigure the flash briefing to reflect your new location. You can also add or delete local news sources. However, you shouldn’t mix different Alexa devices, as this may cause unintended results. For this reason, it’s important to use family mode when setting up Alexa in a different location. For your own security, don’t mix devices from different locations with each other.
If you move to a new city, you should update the location of your Alexa to match the new time zone. Changing the time zone will not result in any problem, but you’ll have to make sure that you have updated your location in the app for Alexa to know the new time zone.

To extend Drop In to a different location, you’ll need to register for Alexa Calling and Messaging before using the Drop In feature. After you’ve completed that step, you can extend Drop In to other households by using the Conversations icon on the home screen. To continue using Drop In, you can also create new groups for each part of your home and use them to set up Alexa in another location.
