Alexa skill ?

Hi
Found details on the Alexa skill here: http://www.serviio.org/alexa am running 1.9.1 pro
Don't seem to be able to find the skill on the Amazon site though.
Anyone managed to do this?
Many thanks.

Hi, that page is not ready to be published yet.

The skill is implemented, but due to some legal issues it'll go to certification in 2 months or so.

Re: Alexa skill ?

Could I help to translate in French ?
Because Serviio skill, will not be in the French Alexa store.

Re: Alexa skill ?

I will see how popular it is and if the effort going into translation would be well spent

Re: Alexa skill ?

Just set it up. It appears that it won't work with Roku players. It keeps saying it can't find the device named. It could be because the Roku doesn't ever appear as green (connected) in the Serviio console. Even when something is playing on a Roku, asking Alexa to say what's playing still says it's not connected. Not a big deal, I just thought I'd play around with it.

Re: Alexa skill ?

Set this up and linked - is there an option to play through the Alexa echo device or only to devices Serviio can see in the console?

Re: Alexa skill ?

Just the DLNA devices, that show Green in the console.

I might expand that to the Echo devices, but all depends on the usage of the skill to make it worthwhile.

Does it mean the account have to be at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk?
Cheers.

Re: Alexa skill ?

I think the Echo device has to be set to one of these regions. Not sure if it's done by the account region origin.

Re: Alexa skill ?

Could we use Amazon Alexa app instead of Echo devices?

I'd like that very much. The ability to use the "everywhere" group to play music from serviio would be great too!
