    Alexa Skills - Fire HD8 7th Gen


    I am having an issue with many Alexa skills on Fire HD 7th Gen. Many of the skills don't result in the correct action and instead open the apps page doing a keyword search instead.

    I have reported this to amazon a number of times without a solution and I also recently tried a factory reset which also did not resolve the issue. Yesterday the Amazon rep claimed this was happening on her devices too so said she will log the issue with the developers and would be in touch.

    I have searched high and low on the internet and cannot find any mention of other users having this issue; which is strange if it was a common issue. Maybe these skills are not well used, but still I would expect to find someting. The issue started sometime in January and before that the skills worked fine.

    Can I ask a favour please? Could someone with Fire HD8 7th Gen try:

    - Go to the alexa app and enable the "true or false" skill.
    - Once enabled, say "alexa, play true or false".

    What's the result? Does it play the game or open the amazon app store?

    This issue also occurs with other skills like "would you rather", "animal game" , "i'm bored" and many others.

    I would appreciate any feedback, seems bizzare that this would be a known issue and no one has reported it...unless no one uses these skills?

    Thanks very much!

    Non of the voice recognition systems are particularly good at recognising voices, particularly ones with accents, so thats nearky every body, my sisters alexia main ude is provieding amusement at how stupid it is, i gave up on them a long time ago, decieding its was far quicker to type., Turn it off and find something else to do with your time

    The Voice computing is in its initial stage it will get better when its AI technology will get better so wait for a few years, To get the best voice recognition.
