I asked my living room mini how it would feel being replaced by an Alexa. 🙂
It responded that each smart device has something unique to offer??
All I want, is one that can understand on from off, hear me when in the same room as opposed to one 20ft away through closed doors, and can understand time? 😞

Thanks for reaching out. I know how it feels when something is not working on your device. I'd love to help.
A few questions:
Looking forward to your response.

It is part of my ongoing issue with all 4 minis in pretty much anything I ask them to do. 😞
Today I asked the Living room mini to switch the printer on.
Mini: Ok, switching the printer off. ????
I have been asked to reboot almost everything in the house and reinstall the minis, which I will do when I come back from holiday. At least the routines still work. (Fingers crossed)
Just checked my activity.
I actually said 'Switch the printer on' , it heard 'Switch off the printer?' ?????
Then when I responded 'I said turn the printer on' it responds 'Got it, turning the printer on'
All my minis appear to have selective hearing? 😞

Let us close this for now, as I am in the USA on holiday.
I have checked my activity and can see that the devices have selective hearing.
Please not I do not have speech impediment and can pronounce my words correctly. If I ask the second time, then the request generally gets done.
