  1. Bluetooth to speaker groups

    I currently have a turntable hooked up to my sound system via Bluetooth to one of my Echo devices. I would like to be able to play the audio from my turntable on a speaker group, currently it plays just on the one Echo. This feature would also allow a user to play audio from a connected phone, tv, tablet, or computer on multiple Echos at once.

  2. Read ALL the language settings of the mobile!

    I have in my mobile set the following languages in THIS order:
    - Hungarian
    - German
    - English

    The Alexa App however does not check this! Just the default system language Hungarian. So. Because this language is not supported, English will be set for the app. Why? It should take the first applicable, and this is German (living in Austria). Please fix this!

  4. Video Call on Phone: On screen display timeout

    When I use alexa app on my iphone and during a video call, if I have to move to another screen and come back to the Alexa video call, from that point of time, the screen times off and I have to touch the display to bring it on again. Can we ensure that during the video call, there is no time out and the display stays on until the video call is finished irrespective of if we moved away from the screen for a while or not?

  5. Respond to “thank you” the same as “stop”

    When a timer or alarm goes off, I instinctively say “Alexa, thank you”. Alexa says “you’re welcome” then carries on with the alarm sound. Maybe it’s a British thing, but when I say thank you to something I feel it should stop there. “Alexa, stop” seems very impolite.

  7. link specific calendar event with reminder feature

    At present after linking my apple calendar with the Alexa app, it just reads events if I ask Alexa to do.

    For example, Alexa, read my today's calendar or my next events.

    I don't get any kind of reminder from my calendar's events.
    for example, sound notifications 30 mins before an event.

    To get a sound notification, I need to create reminders separately for that event.

    For this, what I am requesting is to enable an option within the calendar feature which will help to link specific calendar events with a reminder feature so that I don't need to do…

  8. Alternate routine day choices

    Currently, if you want to set a routine on Alexa, it can only be Everyday, Weekdays, Weekends, or one particular day. If I want to set a routine for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I would have to set up 3 different routines. Could you please add the option to choose alternate days, or even any choice of days(Mon, Tue, Thurs, Fri) instead of only being able to choose one day and return to the beginning to add more routines? Thank you in advance.

  9. Copy/save text from cards and answers in Alexa app

    You should be able to copy text from cards or Alexa responses in the Alexa app, or be able to save out cards and answers to a file.

  10. Allow household memberes to use all the smart home devices

    It would be very useful, if my boyfriend and I (our amazon accounts are linked as one household) could manage our smart home devices (lamps, room groups, heating system) both in our apps. Now whe have to decide in which account we set up a device. For example: My boyfriend has set up a smart lamp in his account. I can't control this lamp in my app. And I can also only control this lamp with voice control, when the speaker is in his account.

  11. APL on Phone App

    The ability to have a visual displays (APL screens) from the alexa app on a phone. So when you start the Alexa app and open your skill, your phone will show the visual aspects just like a Echo Show would.

  12. Firestick Alexa app, speech via remote to text dispayed on TV screen for hearing impaired

    On you Firestick remote, Say, "Alexa" then tell the Firestick Alexa, "Screen note", an on screen dialog box appears on the TV. then whatever you say into the Firestick remote appears in the dialog box. This would be an easy way to communicate with a deaf or hard of hearing person. With some time settable limits, 10 seconds, 45 minutes, or until dissmissed. It would also be a way to leave notes for others. I don't know if there is a way to make it display on OTA TV programing but that seems important.

                                                             Qmavam

  13. Decrease false triggers

    have Alexa respond to “hey Alexa” (or hey Echo, or hey Amazon, or hey computer) like other AI assistants so Alexa won’t false-activate every time she hears her name or something like it in conversation or on the radio or on TV?

  14. Clarify the idea of groups and rooms

    While in a minimalist approach to the Alexa app it may be fine, there is a big confusion that I have noticed across numerous friends and family members involving the idea that groups are basically how a user can group devices with an echo as a "room" idea. I think that either better guidance within the app should be included or a slightly modified system of organizing devices should be implemented. It seems that normal users do not realize that an alexa enabled device goes into a group with other devices to control them separately.

  15. EXCEEDED_MAX_REPROMPTS/SessionEndedRequest device type inconsistencies

    EXCEEDEDMAXREPROMPTS/SessionEndedRequest does not behave on the Show appropriately - in fact it does not happen at all!

    Makes SessionEndedRequest useless and means you can't code for a timeout to end the session and do cleanup then. The API should perform identically on all devices, or at the VERY LEAST the docs should articulate the differences

  16. Allow echo show screen to be controlled from Alexa app without voice command

    Being able to change an echo show's screen brightness remotely via the Alexa app or routine. Having to ask the display to turn off at night is awkward and frustrating. Maybe implementing screen dimming or screen off on a routine or as part of the device control within the Alexa app

  17. bluetooth "brief mode" turns off device connection notification off

    having alexa blast "playing from <device name>" is very annoying and there is not setting to turn it off. I would like to propose that a setting be added or that "brief mode" would mute these bluetooth connection/playing notifications.

    There is a question related here: https://www.amazonforum.com/s/question/0D54P00006zStJTSA0/how-do-i-stop-alexa-from-telling-me-its-connected-to-my-phone

  18. Trigger profile based on voice profile

    If Alexa can tell who is speaking based on the voice profile, why cant it run routines for that user. Currently if my Alexa is on my profile my wife cant run her routines without having to ask Alexa to swtich profile

  19. Repeat on school nights

    There should be an option to either pick multiple days of the week or pick school nights for repeating routines and reminders. Those are different on school nights (Sunday - Thursday) than Friday - Saturday. It's a pain getting everything turned off and on for school breaks much less have everything mysteriously vanish as happened recently.
