    An official German Alexa Skill for Plex would be awesome.

    Upon further inspection in Amazon's developer program, it appears they only allow English language migrations to English-speaking countries. This means we cannot submit an English Skill for Germany.

    https://developer.amazon.com/docs/faq/uk-migration-faq.html

    1. Alexa currently supports English (US), English (UK) and English (India). Based on the language your live skill supports, we will migrate your skill to other English speaking countries. English (US) support US customers, English (UK) supports UK customers and English (India) will support IN customers.

    I have reiterated the demand for this with the Product Manager, so hopefully we'll see it move up in prioritization.

    Uhm no, it's possible with a couple of clicks. See pictures here:

    The only drawback is that users in Germany would likely need to switch the Echo language settings to English in order for it to recognize the commands.

    The current workaround for us german users is to both switch the Kindle account language setting to English and switch the Echo language setting to English in order to get the Plex Alexa Skill working.

    I don't want to change the language of my Echo ecosystem. I don't want to speak English to an assistant. That is stupid if the whole system is based around local language and local skills.

    It is not a very hard task to do a decent German skill. It is not that hard to redesign the plex Alex's skill to become multi-lingual. How far do you think is French home assistance. Or Spanish....

    Please do your home work on this.

    Thank you.

    My plex settings:

    16TB QNAP PMS, 8 TB Buffalo Win2k12 PMS - 3x FireTV(2nd gen), 1x Android tablet, 1x Samsung S8 (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
    -* more per collection & library Settings for collections, f.e. ignore collections up to x items
    -* 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
    -* AVM 6490 cable tuner DVR / LiveTV Support
    -* PayTV (Sky, f.e.) encrypted channel Support (for Sky customers)

    Does anyone has another work around than changing the app and store language to English?

    Could Plex let us know if this intense customer request is on the developers list?

  • DAD405DAD405 Posts: 1Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    New Year has begun and the german speaking customer are still waiting...

    I got the pass to get a high WAF. Voice - search would be an superior enhancement to reach this goal.

    Any ETA to foresee?

    +1 for Alexa Skill for Plex German. Until then no renewal of Plex Pass for me...

  • flowerman78flowerman78 Posts: 1Members

    I'm following this thread for a couple of months now. And I've just registered to this forum to say: +1.
    I haven't got a Plex Pass now, but I will change that, when a german Alexa Skill is available.

    Do not forget to like the original post instead of (or in addition to) sending a short +1 message.
    It is the way that the Plexies want it. Half of the latest answers did not do that.
