It's alright. Still needs a few improvements. It would be better if I could access my amazon music through this app. I have to ask Alexa to play my play list but it's almost impossible to add to it since you can't access Amazon music app if your not a full member!?
Well it doesn't look like a native app and seems it runs a website beneath and is slow. The echo device is great once setup. But the setup process is too painful and annoying. During setup at times it just doesn't recognize wifi networks. If I change my wifi passpord, running the whole setup is too difficult. The app ( or rather the website undeneath app ) also gets unresponsive sometimes in few setup screens, specially after the app connects to echo and it shows a 'Continue' button which doesn't respond.
The app is quire slow, considering it comes from amazon! Specially when you are brwsing skills, it keeps loading forever. It successfully syncs with devices though and has some nice features. Overall i would like to see it catch up on speed to make it more usable!
The app uses a significant amount of battery power and mobile data, even though I don't open it at all. One might think it has to do with the new Alexa calling feature but when I try to call from my echo, the phone never rings and Alexa says she can't connect. Why is this app then the 2nd heaviest battery user and why does it use hundreds of megabytes of data? Very unhappy with it?
Quite possibly the buggiest, slowest, and generally worst app on the play store. Amazon has outdone themselves. I just updated the wifi password on my three echo and it took about 20 minutes 28th numerous "app not responding" messages. Simply looking at my shopping list takes ages. Makes me reconsider my echo purchases.
Installed Alexa app on my Lenovo phone. Set up Alexa. Cannot access music and books to respond in order to sync my spotify music. Circle just goes round for ever. Please help. No music only radio which I can get on my Logitech sqeezbox. I am not a Prime subscriber. Are they trying to make me one by not allowing me to access music for free? I will keep trying, very frustrating.
