According to Amazon, you CANNOT enable freetime on a current echo dot you already have. You must buy the new more expensive hockey puck that you really don't need. I just wasted an hour with Amazon Help to find that out.

I just spoke to Amazon myself, and you do not need to purchase the new Echo Dot to enable Freetime. Whoever you spoke to on Amazon Help gave you inaccurate information.

That’s always the way. It took and hour and 3 reps to give me a wrong answer. Do I have the ambition to try again? Probably not today.

Any idea where to find instructions for enabling Freetime on the echo dot my son already has? I must not be googling the right words and I find nothing in Amazon help either.

From the article
"Can I get these features on an Echo Dot I already own?
Yes. Beginning May 9, you will be able to enable FreeTime (both the free and paid versions) on other Echo devices. However, it currently works on just the Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Plus, and not on the Echo Show, Echo Spot or Fire TV."
