These features and I would've given a 5 star. Being able to link my tunein account. The ability to remove favorited podcast/station in tunein, (You can add but not remove). Also the ability to use voice commands with tunein to play podcasts in chronological order from first episode to last. The use of voice commands to play certain episodes of podcasts. The ability to fast forward/rewind in epiodes of podcasts. Until these features are added there is no point to include tunein as an in app feature. It actually makes using the in app version very frustrating and as useful as any generic bluetooth speaker. Please and thank You.
Latest app issues...numbee one..once again the alarm function on app gets stuck..i can't set or shut alarm off from app. Two. The design..ugh..awful. Who is testing the functionality of your software? Hire someone new! Three I agree with other users..new app was interfering with wifi connection..i reinstalled several times..deleted everything read some blogs on how to fix..i love alexa but glad you are getting competition in this market..you need the incentive to get things right..this is basic stuff. .
I like other users have a Samsng s7 edge with up to date softare and a Galaxy tab s2 10. latest software and neither of these devices will setup the wifi connection. Tried 2 dots both the same, reset x3, uninstalled and re installed app 3 x on tab and phone ..... guess what . it still doesn't work. I've tried both dots also on vodafone mifi and sky broadband. no joy. goes to a blank white screen at wifi setup and sits there forever. This app is definitely the problem and I must admit the programming is shoddy to say the least. Either that or Amazon don't like Samsung devices. oh well another going back to the shop for a refund. Nice 1
The new version is terrible. Significant functionality has been lost or made more complicated. For example the volume is now much more difficult to control compared to the old version. Nor can I stream my wife's prime music anymore, though she still pays for the prime subscription. (Two months later and still terrible! )
With all the promotions that amazon is doing to market this product, you would think they would hire competitive developers to develop, maintain and be proactive about the app. It is awfully full of glitches and I regret giving the dot to several of my friends as presents. Do not buy alexa as a gift to someone. I've gone to friends' houses to find out they don't use them because it is always "offline". If you are thinking of buying, explore google. You don't want to be stuck with alexa products and accessories that do not have good back-up support.
This is a poor app, you have to trawl through several pages to get to simple tasks. And you cant do a search for song or artist via the app, only a complete A-Z list? What? Also, why can't you stream a song direct from Amazon Music? You can from the 3rd party Spotify app. Come on Amazon, more work needed. And when are phone calls coming to the UK?
