    Alexis

    Has anyone tried to run Amazon Alexis on the Nexus7 tablet, and had success? Would really have some help with this program if so??

    I presume you mean Amazon Alexa?

    JimTDI would be the one, if any.

    I don't have the Nexus 7 but it has run on all of my phones. Did you download the Alexa app from the play store?

    For some reason I figured you were trying to run the Nexus 7 as an Alexa device, such as a Echo or Echo Dot. Running the Alexa App as GG above said will allow you to connect to the Echo devices. It works well.

    But as far as making the Nexus 7 act as an Echo, if that's what you mean?

    You can PM me on this board if you want...

    Edit: No need to PM, I now see your inquiry was part of this thread - sorry I missed that, was kind of in a hurry and just checked the "What's New" feature of the board. I have not tried running Alexa on the Nexus 7 but if you can give me a few days I can give it a shot.

    I was able to install Amazon Alexa on a Nexus 7 2012, but as far as I can tell you need one of Amazon's devices (Tap, Echo, etc.) to use the app. I grabbed Alexa out of the Google Play Store...

    And as long as we're on the subject of Alexa, what could be worse that a Rickrolling Alexa: Alexa refuses to listen to police, won't stop playing 'Never Gonna Give You Up'
