When your Echo Dot is flashing yellow, it doesn’t mean that something is wrong or that your Dot is broken. It just means that you have a message from an Alexa contact and that the message is waiting. Or, you may have a notification.
Now, what to do next? It is pretty simple. It is time to give Alexa a command that may sound like “Alexa, what notifications do I have?” or “Alexa, play my messages,” or “Alexa, read my notifications”.
When you do something like this and give Alexa a command, this helpful virtual assistant will read the messages or notifications. As soon this is done, the yellow flashing light will disappear.
