After multiple tries, I’m giving up on connecting my cooker to Alexa. I’m not sure how you folks published something that many people seem to be having issues with. Doesn’t seem like it was QA’d much, on all platforms, various versions, etc… Nothing seems to work. I’ve disabled/enabled the skill multiple times, re-paired the cooker to the IOS phone app, reset various connections, nothing. Disappointing. That said, the cooker itself works great. ZERO complaints about its use. Love it. The Alexa portion would just complete the circle. And also, as a another member posted, you can no longer find the Anova skill when searching on Amazon under “Alexa Skills”
The Alexa skill is undergoing a major overhaul to make it more reliable. Amazon and Anova came to the decision that we would temporarily suspend the skill until the refactoring and testing was complete.
I’ve suggested this approach before regarding the Anova app - I’ll now suggest it for the Alexa skill… If your QA department has a suite of critical path tests written up for the Alexa skill please feel free to release them to the community for execution! I know from reading posts from others in this community forum that I’m not the only one of us who has some years of experience as a developer and/or tester - or are simply very tech savvy. I think we could at the least provide valuable feedback to you as we execute the tests on multiple units and home networks.
I found the Anova skill in the Alexa app. If you search for “Anova” and then click on the “Sous Vide Temperature Guide” skill that comes up, and scroll down to the “Customers Have Also Enabled” section, the Anova Culinary skill is the first one. I successfully installed it from here, and also successfully linked my account. That said, it seems to be the old, buggy skill. I’m having the same problem as the OP - it cannot find a Precision Cooker attached to my account. Bummer. Any ETA on a fix @AlyssaWOAH?
Last update was June of 2018… what is the status of this skill. I just bought the WI-FI version and as I was unpacking the documention indicated that it was Alexa “ready” only to stumble around for hours to find this. Please advise
