  • Check that the remote has a fresh pair of AAA batteries.
  • Go to Settings > Pair remote in the Alexa app, and then press and hold the remote's Play / Pause button for five seconds while Amazon Echo is searching.
  • If you see a purple spinning light on your device, more than one remote was found. Press the Play / Pause button on the remote you want to connect with.

Note: The Amazon Echo Remote is sold seperately. Only one Amazon Echo Remote can be paired with Amazon Echo at a time.

Above steps helpful for pairing remote with Amazon Echo.

However, in case if Alexa fails to hear your voice commands because the music’s too loud or because you’re sitting in a different room, you can now use the Amazon Echo Remote to communicate with Amazon Echo, and get things done.
