My Media for Alexa being discontinued?

Post by ramon2000 » Fri Jul 12, 2019 5:04 pm

I only wanted to know if My Media for Alexa is being discontinued.

Since version 1.3.122.0, February 2nd 2019, 6 months ago, there have been no updates and/or announcements and/or movement in this forum.

I'd love to know this also, since my blind partner relies heavily on the MyMedia plugin...

Lack of updates doesn't necessarily imply lack of future. If there is nothing new to add or no bug to fix then no update is needed. What the developers are really in need of is for Amazon to enable options such as multi-room and stereo pair functions for third-party developers. The developers can only go as far as Amazon allows... :(

I've been thinking the same. I've actually moved over to Plex which has matured a great deal since I first got my Alexa - may be worth a look?

We are still here and supporting My Media - including testing multiroom audio support.

We are also working on some great new features so stay tuned; a smaller maintenance release will be out soon.

Does PLEX play music out through the Amazon device though? or only through plex-compatible players?
