Ratings and Reviews
Simple, like Alexa. Great to have A. on my laptop anywhere!
Very pleased! Simple and it works. Contrary to the other reviewer, I do NOT want a GUI. No buttons and bars, etc. Just want to use my voice, which is the purpose of using Alexa. Alexa is supposed to do the work. It is a voice activated system, why would I want to use a GUI? Hands free is the concept behind Alexa. You have to use the Alexa App to get more, and that is a failure of Alexa.
Big thanks to the dev for the apps - both Mac and iOS. And for their simplicity which matches Alexa in concept and design.
could be better
it would be really nice to be able to listen to music, but on the other side i can still play music on any of my devices from anywhere i happen to be ( like out of town ) but i cant hear it myself :( the drop in feature would be a nice featur to add as well, all in all pretty sweet but i mainly use Alexa at home to drop in on my other rooms and listen to music, guess i still have to use my phone for that out of town.
Cool idea but needs improvement
Cool idea, and since I have lights around my house controlled via Alexa, but don’t have an Echo in my computer room, it’s actually handy for that. However, it uses a lot of system memory (ram), up to 1GB when its idling in the background. Also, as others have pointed out, it would be much easier to use if it lived in the menu bar and was invokable via a keyboard shortcut.
