A NEW WAY TO USE INTEGRATED DEVICES
The updated Alexa App Smart Home section lets you view the state and control your smart lights, locks and thermostats. When you are on-the go, use the app to quickly check the status of your lock or turn off your lights. You can also navigate to the device’s settings page to rename the device or disable it. The new Multi-Room Music section allows users to designate a group for devices on the same Wi-Fi network. Once created, group names can be used to control music playback. The new Routines section allows users to automate a series of Smart Home and audio actions with one custom command. The new capabilities are available to customers with iPhones on iOS 9.0 or later.

CONNECT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
With the Alexa App, you can call and message Amazon Echo device owners and anyone else with the Alexa App on their phones. When you’re away from home, use the app to make a quick call or send a message to your family’s Echo. Use Drop In to instantly connect with your devices for a call. For example, you can drop in to let the family know it’s time for dinner or check in on the baby’s nursery.

ALWAYS READY, CONNECTED, AND FAST
For Alexa device owners, the free Amazon Alexa App is a companion to your Alexa device for setup, remote control, and enhanced features. Alexa is always ready to play your favorite music, provide weather and news updates, answer questions, create lists, and much more. Alexa's brain is in the cloud, so she continually learns and adds more functionality over time. The more you use Alexa, the more she adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences.

HOW IT WORKS
Interactions with devices with Alexa are automatically mirrored visually on your Amazon Alexa App, providing more information as you want it. The Amazon Alexa App lets you easily manage your alarms, music, shopping lists, and more -- wherever you are.

FAST WI-FI and EASY SET UP
Connect to your home's Wi-Fi network using the free Amazon Alexa App, with its simple guided setup. Now you can stream all of your music, listen to radio stations, and have access to news and information, all by voice -- or with the Amazon Alexa App's intuitive interface.

Communications features like calling and messaging are only available in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, and Austria

warning for update Sept 2017

kenr96

This app continues to devolve with each update. As of the latest update you now have to manually select music for your other dot or echo if you want them both to play. I keep the echo music on all day and when I shower, I stream from my dot to the shower radio. If I ask Dot alexa to play 60's music, she says you already have a device playing and would I rather hear it on this device. If you say yes, my echo turns off and the dot plays. Certainly Bezo's can hire better developers than this.

I still cannot fathom the idea that the developers think this update is an improvement. It is the exact opposite. Volume control and "now playing " features are no longer static at the bottom of the screen. Latest version May 9, 2017 cripples the ability to quickly access volume control on iPhone. Can take as many as 4 steps just to get to a volume button. And the time between these steps is not "snappy", if you will. The finger slide volume control is buggy. You can't even see the volume number because it's directly under your finger tip. Pitiful pitiful implementation. App is clunky and slow to respond to touches on iPhone 6 plus. I would love to revert to the older version.

Alexa App becoming useless

Merelycoco

This app is becoming more glitchy and unreliable by the day. The List feature that I mostly use for creating shopping lists is becoming unusable. I want to be able to see my list easy when I’m in the store. However, more often then not, I can’t get the App to open a list or if I do get one to open, then the App stops working and I can’t navigate back to another shopping list. Many times the Alexa app will not even open for me if I’m in a store. I still have cell service and connectivity but no Alexa. I have had to uninstall and reinstall and it still is buggy or non-responsive. As for the folks trying to state that the App issues are user error, that’s ridiculous. Perhaps you are not using the App feature I’m using. Perhaps you don’t understand what we are saying fully. Why do you feel the need to defend Alexa so personally? Trust me, this thing needs an overhaul. Also, when I delete an item from a list, I shouldn’t have to hit the button multiple time to get it to disappear. It used to work differently and developers made changes that require more clicks now. Alexa please work and if u do work correctly, please work smarter!

Want to do lists? Better off with paper.

I can't handle using this app. I keep trying because I desperately want to use it for our grocery lists. That's most of what we use Alexa for. But when I go to the store, the cell service inside is always spotty at best, and the app in CONSTANTLY refreshing and trying to get a new signal, so even if I miraculously pull up the list, within seconds it disappears while trying to sync again. It's incredibly frustrating.

And while they claim to have an offline shopping mode, when I go into Costco, which has no cell coverage at all where I live, it spends all it's time trying to find a signal, and shows me nothing. I've had to call my husband to tell me what's on the list every time, when it should be in my hand! I've even turned off WiFi hoping that would help, but no luck. And I'm sorry, but I shouldn't have to turn off cell data to see my grocery list (which, by the way, doesn't even work either).

Long story short, this app is utterly useless for lists. You're better off with paper.
