Echo Auto for iOS

Still waiting for the email to buy the Echo Auto as an iPhone user. Really need it for testing. Any way to expedite this?

    Hey Tom,

    Not that I know of, but I'll see if I can find out anything about it for ya!

    Best,

    Hi Tom,

    You should be able to simulate the "auto" experience by using the Alexa app, including the geolocation feature. The only thing is I know you wouldn't be able to simulate that way is the 'auto' flag, however if you checked for that in an interceptor and set a request attribute which was then used to control the skill's code, then you could also special case the auto experience using that interceptor. In the interceptor, instead of just setting the request attribute when the auto flag is present, you could also set it when your app's device id matches, and then force the auto experience flag to be true.

    If that doesn't suit your situation, can you share what you want to test and I can see if I can suggest a way to achieve it without an Echo Auto.

    I know but it’s better to have a real device to test the experience. Figure developers can get it for this purpose.
