Doesn't work at all. Can see by the audio diagnostics that it is always listening and hears... something. Blue microphone button fails every time, even with hold-to-speak option, it appears to give up after about a half second. Never heard a single response back, just repeatedly asks to "Hold the button and start speaking".
This app is excellent on my Galaxy S7 except for one annoying problem for which I will deduct 1 star from an otherwise perfect score. When Alexa responds to a request, frequently the last syllable in her response is missing. The response of "OK" comes out as "Oh". If I ask her to tell a joke or the weather, the last word in her response is truncated. However some responses like the response to a math calculation or the response to "Are you connected" are not truncated. It is odd because an earlier version of the app did not do this. In spite of this annoyance, the app always hears and Alexa always obeys my request.
This app WAS perfect. They just released a new update on 6/15/17. I am so disappointed that they removed the WIDGET. The widget was the primary way in which I used the app. All I had to do was press the widget button on my desktop and I could start speaking the command. Now that's gone. Removing a star because they have just made it take twice as long as what it used to to accomplish the same tasks. Also removing star as, when you speak a command, half the time, it does not acknowledge the command. So you don't know if it is carrying out the request or if decided it could not process the request. In the prior release, it would always acknowledge if it was carrying out the request or was unable to carry out the request. Original Review: Allows me to talk to Echo from Anywhere! Now I can control my A/C units with the simple press of the Ubi widget on my phone and my voice. No more having to click through different screens on my A/C's app. No more having to walk over to the room where my Echo is located. I have found it to be very time saving and convenient. Would be nice if it had access to the music as well, but it's still a very good app and does exactly what I hoped.
Great idea, some bugs. The first time I tried it it didn't work. Later that evening I tried it again with some success, some fails. More than a few times "Alexa" simply said "I'm not sure what went wrong" but trying multiple times it eventually worked. We'll keep playing with it.
Keeps crashing on Nexus tablet and if u are lucky enough to get it to open it very rarely works
Worked great before latest update. Now the program won't start at all and crashes when opening on my galaxy note 4.
