On our Amazon Echo Dot the ring color actually looks lime green in day light.  Do not confuse it with flashing green ring which indicates that someone is dropping in on your Echo device or trying to call you.

Use one of these phrases to clear the messages and notifications on your Alexa device:

  • “Alexa, what are my messages?” 
  • “Alexa, what are my notifications?”
  • “Alexa, what did I miss?”
  • “Alexa, next/previous”
  • “Alexa, clear all notifications”
  • “Delete all of my notifications”

Alexa notifications are enabled automatically when you set up  Alexa Calling and Messaging feature.

You can also check messages and notifications and manage your notification settings in your Alexa app.

To change your notification settings in the Alexa app:

Click menu icon in the top left corner of the home screen. Choose Settings -> Notifications.

Here, you can choose which skills are allowed to send you notifications as well as configure notifications for other Amazon things like receiving a notification when your Amazon package is delivered.
