    If you're an Amazon Alexa user, you owe it to yourself to try this
    out... biggest game-changer for me since iPeng.

    Happy to say that I was able to get everything installed today without any issues and successfully paused and resumed play using voice commands on my Echo Dot with the Alexa plugin in LMS. Looking forward to doing some additional testing and helping further the development of this amazing plugin.

    I'll test if you are looking for more. I run LMS on a Win8 box, 2 radios, a Boom, and 1 Squeezeslave client.

    Hi Tom

    No problem. If you don't have one already, set up an Amazon Developer account and PM me the email address you used. I'll then send you invites.

    Tester

    Hi,

    i'd love to test your Alex skill!

    I run Squeezebox in three different rooms on Raspberry Pi's.

    ...somehow my account after three days is still not fully unlocked so i can't write an PM - is there any other way to write you my data?

    Thanks!
    Tobias

    Hi Tobias

    Send the email address you used to set up your Amazon developer account to admin at hab-tunes.com

    We're currently in the throes of testing v0.2.0.2 which still has some stability issues. Once I get that sorted, I'll extend invites to the people who've offered to help test in the past days.

    Peter

    Alpha v0.2.0.3

    New release today with the changes listed below.

    For those recently volunteered to test, assuming this turns out to be stable enough, I'll be sending out your invites soon, probably tomorrow.

    Version 0.2.0.3 (19th May 2017)

    • Fixed an issue with selected device not saving correctly (skill)
    • Expanded status intent to include a lot more permutations (skill)
    • Expanded player name list (skill)
    • Added option to contribute player names to project (plugin / skill / db)
    • Changed use MQTT param initialisation to default to On, making it the default mode (plugin)
    • Set currently nominated player as selected if nothing currently selected (plugin)
    • Caught cases where squeezebox is muted and reported accordingly in list and status commands (skill)
    • Added rudimentary volume reduction when in extended listening mode (skill/plugin)
    • Fixed a bug preventing DE users selecting devices by number (skill)
    • Updated alexa-verifier from v0.2.0 to v0.3.6 to benefit from utf improvements (skill)
    • Fixed a bug with umlauts in device names causing verification errors (skill)
    • Tweaked response and re-prompt language (skill)
    • Added missing responses to translations file (skill)
    • Bumped the version (plugin)

    Known issues:

    • All playback devices will be volume reduced to 10% during extended listening. It's a blunt instrument to test the overall efficacy of this solution to see if we can minimise false commands resulting from Alexa responding to song lyrics.
    • In extended listening mode, volume change commands may not work as anticipated due to volume levelling
    • List and Status responses may not return the correct player volume settings in extended listening mode.
    • Users should respond to Alexa prompts with known commands only. Polite 'yes' and 'no' are not yet supported.
    • If the server is inaccessible, the plugin log file fills quickly.
    • Still a lot of translations missing for our DE users

    Video Demo

    Here's a new video demo showing some of the recent features such as audio volume reduction while Alexa is listening, the ability to configure extended listening & re-prompts, list and status reports and some other stuff.

    Apologies for the music selection - it's the only playlist I have in my test LMS, a timely reminder of when the project started
