Echgo is now able to present images, the weather forecast and much more in a nice clear way. Echgo uses the newest Alexa Voice Services Api and also supports Timers, Alerts, Skills, Calendar, Weather, Smart Home devices, Traffic, Sports, News and Audio playback. Listen to many Radio Stations and Podcasts powered by TuneIn (US iHeartRadio), relax to your Audible Audiobooks or let Alexa read you Kindle books. Try Asking Questions, here are some examples: "Alexa, how's the weather?" "Alexa, timer 5 minutes" "Alexa, what's in the news?" "Alexa, play NPR" "Alexa, turn on the lights" "Alexa, play the podcast RadioLab" "Alexa, play my Audiobook" "Alexa, add an event to my calendar"
To setup you Alexa, set location, change temperature units, install skills and view Alexa Cards please use the Amazon Alexa App. (can be free downloaded separately) Echgo supports the Alexa voice languages: English (US), English (UK) and German.

An Amazon account is required in order to sign in and use Alexa service. This is a requirement of Amazon. Echgo is never given your Amazon account credentials. *Echgo has to run in the foreground
