    V1.4.7 - Test Build Hi folks, Not publicly on the Play Store yet, so direct download only • Major production crash Unfortunately, with some weird and wonderful Alexa configuration that only the masses would consider, the app was crashing on start-up. So, instead of doing what I was supposed...

    :):angel::cowboy: Unfortunately not at the moment. Using another provider and moving away from any kind of Google dependencies is high on my list. But alas, they are 'free'.... Some have used only MicroG apps, which reduces the burden a little.

    Thanks for doing that :good: Just to 100% clarify (which I didn't make clear, sorry), when you click on it, is it the blue notification (with stop tutorial in) that remains visible - it doesn't change back to the standard 'self-aware' only notification. Thank you!

    Passing the command to the Assistant is hit and miss - it normally ends up in Google Now. So, unfortunately, that's the expected behaviour. Good news is, you don't have to do anything via Tasker! I need a completely new design to correctly integrate with the Google Assistant & Alexa - I'm...

    Thanks again for this, it's really helpful. I'll compare the code from both and see what I'm doing differently in the streams - for a work-around for now, I might just stick a 'legacy headset' toggle in the Superuser Setting or something, so you can have it back to the way it was. Again, much...
