Re: ORBI VOICE

Hi @jjkappock

 

Welcome to NETGEAR Community!

 

To set up your streaming audio service, you must link your streaming audio service to Alexa using the Amazon Alexa app.

 

The Orbi Voice does not support “Calling & Messaging” feature.

Re: ORBI VOICE

Doesn’t matter if you set up Alexa or not. Even if your Apple Music skill is activated on Alexa it still won’t play Apple Music. What a rip off. I’m ready to send this thing back.

Re: ORBI VOICE

You are 100% correct.  It does not matter if you connect your Orbi Voice to your Alexa account with Apple Music as your default streaming service and skill.  The Orbi Voice will not play music from Apple Music.  I have an Amazon Echo connected to the same account and it plays my Apple Music without any issue.  VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!  I am considering returning this device due to it not doing what it should do .  There really is no excuse for it.
