I been using the new Alexa skill since it was release a week ago and have a few questions. I won’t go into the voice related problems since I assume that you guys are working on solving them. Now for my problems:
1. I can’t include my BlueOS devices in Alexa routines since they don’t show up as a device or scene.
2. I can’ set my BlueOS devices as prefered speakers in a Alexa room. I’m talking about the built in functionality in Alexa not the default player voice command in your Blue Voice implementation.
Will these features be implemented in the near future? As is the skill is basically useless since you can’t use it for any of the Alexa built-in functions.
If you need ideas how to implement your Alexa integration I suggest looking at Sonos, Bose and Heos since they all have these basic features. They are in no way perfect especially when it comes to sound quality BUT at least they followed Amazons recommendations.
