Alexa skill one primary issue

    Hi James

    Thanks for the feedback - not quite as simple as you have suggested as there are a number of limits to the API and to hardware.

    It has been passed along for future consideration though.

    Hi Tony,

    I'd like to give James' post a +1.

    Could you perhaps go into more detail as to what and where those limitations lie?

    The Alexa baseline skills are improving all the time, and I don't think we're asking for anything beyond what the BluOS API already has in place (other than perhaps the Alexa.Discovery Interface, which isn't technically taxing).

    The Alexa/BluOS experience leaves a lot to be desired at the moment, and unfortunately it's easy to compare against other (subjectively inferior) products that provide a superior experience.

    All the best,

    The OP hits it on the nail, stop selling this Alexa integration as a feature. It doenst work and it is quite unintuitive. The severe lack of improvements and blatant ignoring of alexa skills reviews and feedback is extremely disappointing and quite scary as if this compaby stops innovating I dont see them surviving a very competitive market. And that speaks gllom for our Bluesound investment.
