About this app

Ultimate Alexa is a full-featured voice assistant that uses the Amazon Alexa voice service, and is the first app on Google Play to support Alexa’s Display Card technology – like the Amazon Echo Show. Hear and see weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, news headlines, Wikipedia entries, and much more. Support is included for both phones and Wear OS watches. If your watch doesn't have a speaker, your connected phone's speaker will be used.

Wake up Alexa on your phone by either saying the “Alexa” wake word or tapping on the big button. You can also activate Alexa from your notification area, the resizable widget, or by saying "OK Google. Start Ultimate Alexa" using the Google Assistant.

You can even set Ultimate Alexa to be your default assistant, so that it listens for the wake word all of the time and can also be woken up by long-pressing your home button.

Upgrade to the Pro version and you can wake up Alexa by simply shaking your phone. If you have a Samsung device with a Bixby button, the Pro version also lets you use that button to talk to Alexa.

On your Wear OS watch, just tap on the big button or say "OK Google. Open Alexa".

You have full control over when the app will listen and respond to your commands. You can also choose from several different Alexa voices.

Support is included for every Alexa feature Amazon allows, including:

• Making phone calls.

• Reading and sending text messages. Support is included for most messaging apps, including Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, your phone's SMS app, and many more.

• Playback of music and audio files stored on your phone or tablet.

• Reminders, timers, and alarms.

• Repeating alarms. For example, you can have Alexa wake you up every morning.

• Calendar entries. Hear and see your calendar items.

• Reading of Kindle books.

• Smart home device control.

• Access to local information: businesses, restaurants, movies, phone numbers, and more.

• News, weather, sports, and traffic.

• Fun and games.

• General information: Wikipedia entries, math, unit conversions, and more.

• To-do and shopping lists. See the list on-screen and have it read out to you.

• Shopping on Amazon.

• Access to thousands of third party skills.

• And much more!

Calling and Text Messaging Availability: These features are currently available in the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. A separate Alexa skill is used, which can be enabled by installing the Phone Link app, at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.customsolutions.android.phonelink

Music Playback: Due to restrictions imposed by Amazon, music playback through voice commands is limited to music stored on your device as well as 3rd party skills that support music. Voice commands cannot be used to play music from Amazon and popular services such as Pandora and Spotify.

Amazon Echo Device Owners: If you are looking for Amazon's Alexa app, that provides remote control and settings for your device, download it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.amazon.dee.app

Some optional features of the app use an accessibility service, and the app will prompt you to enable this service if necessary. When replacing the Bixby assistant with this app, the service keeps track of the current foreground app. When it detects the Bixby app in the foreground, it launches Ultimate Alexa to replace it. Additionally, on devices running Android 9 and lower, the service makes it possible for the app to share the microphone with other apps by pausing wake word listening whenever an app is in the foreground that may need microphone access.

Are you kidding me??? After the 3rd FULL SCREEN POP-UP AD during the initial setup that is designed to trick users into clicking on the advertisement as if it's part of the setup it is abundantly clear the developers are either nefarious in nature or have no regard for their customers. How about let a person have a few seconds to set the app up before they are bombarded with this. Absolutely NO option to pay to remove ads was given before the ads started.

Since, incredulously, the Amazon Alexa app won't allow a hands-free experience, I was forced to get this app, which is well worth the price to remove the ads, and get it to work with the screen off. The only reason that I rate it four stars instead of five is because it regularly signs out, requiring me to access the app, in order to have it sign back in. It happens about once a day, but given all the advantages of a hands-free voice assistant, I still rate it highly.

I was thinking about purchasing the ad free version but it's an in app purchase so I cannot add it to my family plan. How disappointing. Also my keyword is hey Alexa, but it barely works. So I turned up the sensitivity and it turns on when I yawn. I've tried many settings. I won't be purchasing the paid version until both of these things are fixed.
