    Hi,

    @kinoCharlino

    The dev team is doing more behind the scenes than just sugar coating the language by adding new phrases and such. They're focusing on performance and reliability improvements, too.

    This is good to know... but nothing happens at all. No updates that we know of on that English Alexa skill, no German skill at all. No progress announced.

    My plex settings:

    16TB QNAP PMS, 8 TB Buffalo Win2k12 PMS - 3x FireTV(2nd gen), 1x Android tablet, 1x Samsung S6 (Music, Movie, TV show libraries)

    My "small" feature wishes:
    -* multiple parallel filters using an advanced mechanism (AND/OR/NOT) combine different categories when using filters
    -* better collection (not only as a meta tag, movie grouping, searchable)
    -* user defined meta tags which can be assigned to standard tags but which do not get lost when updating the data (example) [I want to add "James Bond" to all James Bond movie titles without marking the titles as not changable; I would add information on different versions (Uncut, Extended, DC) of a movie to the movie title, I would like to add the role of a character, I want to add a user defined collection name without marking the standard field as not changable]
    -* flag to limit my search to the actual library which I am in when doing a search
    -* German plex skill for Alexa

    @kinoCharlino
    Thank you again for answering. I think, most of us appreciate the work you are doing on this.

    It is a little bit like telling people that you are not laying the focus on their market since the English skill isn't available in the German Amazon store. But of course, ironing out the existing skill is a "Good Thing".

    My guess was, that it is just a matter of amending a few XML bits and pieces (since I've seen a few other bi-lingual Alexa skills).

    I now think that I will be the very last to lay my hands on voice control for Plex since I am

    a) German
    b) using three different FireTVs as clients (name issue since PMS has no changable names for different FireTV devices)

    This is a little bit frustrating. I really hope that you can do all three things at the same time - adding German language to it as well as adding functionality to the skill and ironing out the background processes to speed things up.

    Hi,

    could you please at least make the US version available to German skill store? I am living in Germany and using my Alexa in English. Unfortunately I did not find any way to have this skill enabled on my "german" Alexa.
    Help appreciated.

    I'm also very interested in a german skill.
    For 100% I would buy Plex Pass if this skill would be available in the german store.

  • bernhardbockbernhardbock Posts: 1Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    Would be very interested as well. If you need any help with L10N of intents and slots, I'm German native speaker and have my own skill in the Alexa skill store, so I do know the internals of Alexa ;).

    I'm also highly intereststet in a german Plexiglas skill.
    Thanks a lot!

    Oh yeah, a german skill would be nice. Due to the fact that you have to use native language skills we are really busted up here in old germany.
