For the pairing and connecting guide for your Apple Mac or Windows laptop/computer, please visit:  TheOontZ.com/pairing

Windows 7 or 8 laptops/computers may have difficulty pairing and connecting over Bluetooth. If this occurs it is recommended to connect and play using the 3.5mm audio cable. Please view the section:  ‘Playing From Your Windows 7 or 8 Laptop/Computer and Non-Bluetooth Audio Devices Using the 3.5mm Audio Cable’.

 

-- From Your Amazon Echo Dot

Turn on your OontZ Angle 3 first and make sure it is in pairing mode.

To pair and connect your OontZ Angle 3 the first time from the Amazon Echo Dot you need to use the Alexa app on your iPhone, iPad, Smartphone, or Tablet.

First make sure to disconnect any other Bluetooth device from the Amazon Echo Dot. The Amazon Echo Dot can only connect to one Bluetooth device at a time.

- Open the Alexa app
- Go to the ‘Home’ menu by pressing the 3 horizontal lines in the upper left corner next to ‘Home’
- Press ‘Settings’
- Select your Amazon Echo Dot under ‘Devices’ by pressing it
- Press ‘Bluetooth’
- Press ‘Pair a New Device’. In a few seconds the ‘OontZ Angle’ will appear in the list of ‘Available Speakers’
- Select ‘OontZ Angle’
- In a few seconds you will hear Alexa’s voice coming through the OontZ Angle 3 : “Connected to OontZ Angle”
- The audio from the Amazon Echo Dot will now play through the OontZ Angle 3

Now that the Amazon Echo Dot is paired to the OontZ Angle 3, if the speaker becomes disconnected or turned off, to re-connect turn on the OontZ Angle 3 and just say “Alexa, connect my speaker ” or “Alexa, pair”

Important Note: When the OontZ Angle 3 is playing from battery power and connected to the Amazon Echo Dot, the Amazon Echo Dot disables the power saving feature on the OontZ Angle 3 speaker. The speaker will remain on and it will not automatically turn off after 15 minutes of not playing audio. The Amazon Echo Dot is continuing to communicate to the speaker even when not playing audio and will use up the battery charge, at the same rate as full volume audio.

We recommend either: 1) Keeping the OontZ Angle 3 plugged into a USB wall charger or USB port on a laptop/computer, so it can remain on and available to play from the Amazon Echo Dot, without having the battery becoming drained. Or, 2) Turning the OontZ Angle 3 off when you are done listening. You can turn the OontZ Angle 3 speaker off by pressing and releasing the Power button on the OontZ Angle 3, or you can say "Alexa, disconnect my speaker" and the OontZ Angle 3 will automatically turn off after 15 minutes. When you want to play to the speaker again turn on the OontZ Angle 3 and say “Alexa, connect my speaker ” or “Alexa, pair” and the Amazon Echo Dot will connect and the audio will play through the OontZ Angle 3.

If you need assistance with your Alexa app, contact Amazon's support through the app. Open the Alexa app and select Help & Feedback > Email Customer Service
