Quote from: Nick on October 05, 2019, 20:56:22 pmI like the ability to add things to a shopping list on my iPhone, just tell Alexa to add milk to the list and it appears. Not so happy that bbc have removed their radio shows from tune-in radio which means I can no longer tell Alexa to,"play radio 4 in Kitchen" and it would play through my kitchen sonos 5. First world problems.
Quote from: Slim on October 06, 2019, 23:51:55 pmI'd noticed that the 'Tune In' app no longer works. But BBC Sounds works fine - so if you just say "Radio 4" to a Dot, it will work quite nicely. If you say "play Radio 4" the 'play' keyword will try to invoke Tune In, and that won't work now.Not sure if BBC Sounds will work remotely with a Sonos like Tune In did, though. Never used that facility myself.

Quote from: Reg on November 27, 2019, 20:47:06 pmThe Echo is a marked improvement over the Dot, certainly in bass at low volumes - and that is an area that I wanted to improve.I've now got a number of audio groups set up.It IS annoying that certain things you can't do over grouped speakers.I have worked out how to do Planet Rock. "Play Planet Rock on Tune-In on Everywhere" will play Planet Rock on my 3 speakers. I had to work this out for myself - I couldn't find an answer to this when I did some searching.However, "Play Planet Rock on Everywhere" doesn't. I have to mention Tune-In.On a single device, "Play Planet Rock" works fine.1st world problem!I haven't worked out if I can do the same/similar for BBC Radio 4, as Radio 4 isn't on Tune-In as already discussed earlier in the thread.Overall though, me like. Especially at the discounted prices.

Quote from: Reg on November 29, 2019, 12:50:29 pmHi Bez.The BBC Sounds skill is installed and my account linked. I did this a while ago when Radio 4 stopped working on Tune-In. I have not found any further info online related to this other than people complaining that BBC Sounds does not work on Amazon audio groups.I have just contacted the BBC to ask if this functionality is available (and how!?), or has it gone now they are not on Tune-In.Looks like I will have to stick to stuff on Tune-In. I'm enjoying Planet Rock other than the repetitive adverts.
