I just recived a Amazon 7 tablet with Alexa

 

I was going to stick it up in the kitchen HOWEVER there is no "wake up" action command. You have to physically press the button to use alexa. Making it useless , for my purposes. hmmmmm 

 

Anyone want a used for 5 minutes Amazon Tablet 7 ?? LOL

The Amazon Tap speaker is like that, hence its name.

 

 [edit][edit] The Amazon Echo - same form factor, voice wakeup. But... requires wired power - has no battery. So that's the power trade-off - sitting around listening and processing sounds to see if the trigger word was said. Chews the juice.
