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 voice, vocabulary, and personal preferences.

A NEW WAY TO USE SMART DEVICES
With Smart Home, control or check status of your smart lights at home and on-the go. Create groups of smart lights and control all the lights in a room with a single command. Automate your smart home with custom Routines - with one command you can wake up with your Flash Briefing, turn on the lights, and get the coffee brewing by turning on your smart plug.

CONNECT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
With the Alexa App, you can call and message Amazon Echo device owners and anyone with the Alexa App on their phone. 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 Alexa devices to a call home or to let the family know it’s time for dinner.

MUSIC EVERYWHERE
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. Create groups of devices on the same Wi-Fi network to surround yourself with Music.

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.

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.

Love it but be careful w updates

I love and depend on Alexa, despite some of its kinks and limitations. In my house I’ve got good Internet and haven’t had many connectivity issues. I’ve got most of my main lights connected to Alexa and love the customized news updates that have become part of my morning routine. I’ve connected it to my sound system so my music comes through in Bose surround. Wonderful.

My mom lives in the basement of a NY brownstone and has poor Internet connectivity. She had all kinds of bridging issues with the 1st generation echo and Philips Hue light bulbs and an old iPhone 5. I’ve upgraded her to the latest of everything (she is still waiting for Fios to come into her area and continues to suffer from poor internet access) and although it took a while, with calls to help desks, she’s now got everything purring including her thermostat control with echo bee.

Beware the latest Alexa update. It does the thing where you have to renter your use name and password, and my Alexa was offline until I could do that. A real pain, as I just got out of surgery and am quite dependent on the voice control, etc.

I can’t really compare w Google Home and others. It’s not perfect. But I’ve gotten familiar with it and developed some loyalty so I don’t foresee myself changing unless things get really bad.
