Question: What does a yellow light on my Amazon Alexa Echo mean? Answer: If your Alexa device starts showing a yellow light, it means that a message or notification* is waiting for you. To hear your notifications you can say things like: “Alexa, play my messages” or “Alexa, what did I miss?” 🙂 *NOTE: if you have not enabled messaging, it could be the new package notification feature… you can also check your notifications by saying “Alexa, what are my notifications?”
