You might wish to know how to deregister an Amazon Echo Studio speaker if you’re getting rid of it. Perhaps you’re upgrading to a later model. Or, as we did here, we bought a new Studio for a relatve. But we forgot to mark it as a gift in our Amazon cart. This meant that Amazon automatically registered it to our account. Even though it should have been set up in the relative’s account. Thus, we wanted to deregister the Alexa Studio from our account before giving it to him. Thus, that’s what we did, as follows.
Note that this does not affect how the Echo Studio will work once registered on another Amazon account. But deregistering unwanted speakers from your Alexa account keeps your devices list current. Plus, it keeps the clutter of no longer valid devices low. So, we suggest deregistering old Alexa speakers from your Amazon account now and then.

Get to a place where you have internet access on your mobile device.
You should install and set up the Alexa App from Amazon on a mobile device. Next, log into the app with your Amazon account credentials. Be sure to use the same Amazon account that has the Echo Studio you wish to deregister.
