There is absolutely nothing about this STUPID app that’s user friendly! And the best part is I’m only using it because the Alexa refuses to learn either of our voices! And I can’t change anything with my voice..,all I’m trying to do is listen to music...that’s it!! And I can’t even get that to happen! I’m so frustrated it’s a joke! I’ve tried the settings...but honestly, I want technology to simplify my life, not be another TIME CONSUMING annoying thing I don’t have time to spend hours learning!! I can’t even get this stupid thing to go from Tunein to a local radio station on my phone. I’ve tried everything...I’m usually pretty good with this stuff too....but this has me baffled. If anyone knows what I’m doing wrong please. Or just knows how to figure this dumb thing out? Or if there is a better app I could use....I’m grateful for any assistance at all. I can’t find it when I googled it & the support page just frustrates me more. I just want to listen to some music ....I’m not trying to get this thing to cure the Cov. lol. Thank you.
Alexa is smart Entertaining and fun! She keeps me from burning dinner, reminds me of drs appointments, and keeps me on track of chores! She remembers my favorite songs, introduces me to new music, tells me what to expect the weather to be, and even when to expect the rain to begin. She Gives me definitions of words, explains tough political terms, tells corney jokes, connects to my phone to boost the audio of anything I’m playing on my phone like audio books, the first day she even told me that she loved me! Lol thanks to the app I can take her with me in my car where she continues to keep me on task and allows me to play serius radio in my home and our second car!! When I leave she arms our alarm and camera and alerts me when there’s a loud noise inside, or something that stirs up our dogs! I want another one for my art studio!!
Alexa is one of the coolest gadgets I’ve ever bought!
From clunky use, to bugs, I would expect one of the most successful businesses in the history of the world to have a much friendlier User Interface.
I am currently exploring other avenues of smart home speakers due to this app and also because of how Alexa’s long and unwanted responses have become a nuisance (yes, even with “brief” mode on).
Every time she tries to sell me something or some subscription, I unplug another Alexa device —petty and not impactful, but my little victory nonetheless.
The everywhere group speaker constantly quits working. Drop in and all communication services don’t work. Communications error tap to retry. No matter what I do it won’t resolve. I’ve de registered all the devices and reregistered. Deleted the app reinstalled the app. Started a new account. Tried different routers. Sick of chasing all the bugs in this thing. The support for this app is non-existent I’m taking the echoes to the range and using them for target practice. Video to follow.
I use this app for my Amazon Alexa and I always use to set alarms and stuff. But time has passed and I don’t need those alarms anymore. But I can’t get to the alarms page! Whenever I click into it my screen stays blue! Sometimes even when I just enter the app it just will be blue! I can’t change a single alarm and I can’t do like anything! There are only special times that it will finally work again. But if I leave the app at all and go back it will just be blue. Not happy.
It’s a good app. I use it a lot for shopping lists. I just started using the reminders to keep my kids (and myself) organized on which classes they are supposed to be in for virtual learning. What the app needs is the ability to PAUSE repeating reminders. I have about 10 set for each weekday and my son ended up deleting them all over Thanksgiving break because they kept going off and we had no way to just pause them for a few days. That would be a helpful feature.
I bought multiple Alexa devices to use as alarm clocks for each family member. I was hoping that I could use each to trigger its own routine when turning off the alarm. While you can select which device should play the routine, I have found that turning off an alarm on one device triggers the routine set on every other device. That makes this completely useless! Returning the new Echo Show I just bought because of this. Please fix this!!
This app worked WONDERFULLY with the echo studio and show and then it didn’t. It just didn’t. I couldn’t log in. I asked for help and continued to get help for other issues but never actually getting logged in to the app! I uninstalled and reinstalled. I changed my password. I asked for more help. Can’t log in to the app. Since I can’t log in to the app... I can’t manage my system.... single point of FAILure.
I had enjoyed my morning wake up with news, calendar events, messages and more. About two months ago everything started changing until it alerts me that it no longer has access to my account. I have deleted turn the app, turn my phone off and on , deleted and added info etc... I did rely on Alexa for a lot and now I’m back to frustration for all the money I’ve spent.
I was scrolling through device settings and accidentally touched “Alexa calling” and now it’s enabled. When I could not find the setting to disable, I asked Alexa and was told I would need to contact Amazon customer service. WELL JEFF BEZOS AND YOUR LIEUTENANTS WHO DREAMT THIS WONDERFUL FEATURE, YOU CAN GO JUMP IN AN ICE COLD LAKE AND STAY THERE. #morons
