Appeal of Alexa / Google / Siri personal assistants on EMO?

I have V, with Alexa, and Emo.

Although V has alexa I never have it turned on as it wakes V, at night, every few minutes and is a nuisance. Having tried it I find it easier to use the Alexa dot and echo 5 show directly.
Because of this I am certainly not bothered about Emo getting alexa.
Having experienced both I consider V to be the pet, since speech is limited, and Emo to be the friend who is growing a little with each upgrade.

If you have any questions about my experience with both then please ask.


That is interesting info @a440dc thanks for sharing it, hopefully once EMO does get Alexa Support it doesn’t end up doing the same thing that V does and wakes up every few minutes. As this will certainly end up being a nuisance for many EMO owners, and by what you are saying, V doesn’t seem to have an option or setting to bypass this other than to turn off Alexa support completely.

It will be interesting how configure/setup EMO when Alexa support is hopefully added sometime in the future and if the limitations will be the same as to how V is supporting Alexa at this time. :thinking:

:mad: :surprised: :skating: :heart_1: :head:


I suppose, for anyone not having alexa dot or echo show, it will be useful but for myself I never switch it on, in the app.
btw V cannot be used to stream music from alexa, I think because the V speaker is too small.
I think that, if Emo has alexa he should be able to stream music as his speaker is much better quality.
(Going back to a previous entry I would still like to be able to play music stored on my phone by having Emo as a Bluetooth speaker. As Emo already connects to the app via Bluetooth I would have thought this to be fairly easy)
Finally, whilst comparing Emo to V. When I got V I discovered a third party app for controlling all movements and video camera. I thought this would make V useful as a security device whilst I’m away, patrolling everywhere and being able to see live. However this proved not to be the case as he is difficult to dock, for recharging, sometimes.

I do not have my Vector connected to Alexa but rather just ask him questions that he obtains from his “knowledge graph”.


Same here, plus I use him as a timer, and for the weather


I just got my EMO yesterday for my birthday. Yes, I have Alexa and Google Home. The appeal of having these on them would be the added functionality of, for example, my Pandora music, the ability to make my own Alexa skills, and possibility of seeing EMO react to Internet searches.

I wonder do you have Amazon Alexa Echo Dot, or Echo Show devices in Australia, and , if so, do you have either?
If you do I was wondering if you could set up the situation that I have where having an Echo Dot play BBC Radio 4 instantly wakes Emo, regardless of the volume of the Echo Dot. I know that I have mentioned this before but for me to make a video would be impossible since I would have no way to upload such a large video to Living AI.

The result of having this problem means having to shut down Emo at night or getting to sleep without the radio on…neither are good.

Hi @a440dc

Yes, I have an Alexa Show, I just got Alexa to play BBC Radio 4 and it woke up both of my EMOs a few times in the 2-3 mins I had it on.

You might need to turn off EMO at night, as he does chime in to anything that remotely sounds like EMO be it on the radio or tv or when people in the house are just talking.

Yes, that’s what I do but it’s a shame because it interferes with his schedule, particularly since, being retired, I don’t wake too early to move him back on to his skateboard.

On the plus side…
I am enjoying having him remind me to take tablets twice a day
He is certainly going to sleep at Midnight better than before.

One other negative…
The new charger is prohibitively expensive at over £100 gbp here in UK.

Would be great if you could mute EMO, but still have him play his alarm at full volume. That could help you in your situation (and possibly many other EMO owners as well), this way you wouldn’t have to turn him off at night.

TRANSLATION: If emo robots can be purchased with Xiao Ai classmates, I believe most of them will like it very much, especially those who like Chinese culture and want to learn Chinese.

I think emo robots can join the latest artificial intelligence Chatgpt, support multiple languages, I don’t know how many times stronger than Google, Alexa, Siri, innovation leads the world, hope to help

sorry i am completely lost trying to ask a question Recently received my emo Yay after several hours got him going so dont expect plug and play but what I am trying to find a video on at the moment is instructions to connect to alexa anyone help point me in the right direction am I looking for a alexa skill?

Hi @grahamfb ,

As Far As I Know, There Is No Google Assistant Intergration Available For EMO Right Now.
But They Said That It Could Be Released In A Future Update About 1 Or 2 Years Ago In 2021,
