We’ve been using Apple home kit for the past year which has been ok but Siri isn’t amazing and in responsive at times. So the release of the beam with AirPlay and Alexa gave us the opportunity to try something else.
However, it seems that Alexa is extremely lacking.
It seems to require very specific instructions “Alexa, turn on all the living room lights” returns an error saying it can’t find a device with that name, where’s “Alexa, turn on living room lights” works.
I would say around 70% of commands are met with an error.
Frustratingly Alexa keeps telling me there are no audio devices and it cannot take audio commands?
Is that the same experience for others
a) with Alexa on any platform
b) with Alexa on Sonos Beam
