Core Alexa enhancements e-mail

Firstly, there is nothing I can find posted that physically addresses using Alexa to control aspects of Core without the need for the Core app to do so. Although I do not currently use Alexa I have to question this one. Updates? Firmware / app releases coming soon? We cannot even manually remove a device from the Core device listing and Norton is focused on Alexa? Really? lol

Re: Core Alexa enhancements e-mail

Agree completely. I also received the same email, don't use Alexa (or Google Home or Apple Homepod), couldn't care less about this "feature", and have no idea why this would be any sort of priority over the long list of requests for functionality listed in this forum since the Core was first introduced. I have never seen a request for this. 

Where's the PC/web interface? Where's IPV6? 

Is this in release 267? Some future release (maybe the mysterious Beta)?

I'm not sure why anyone would care, but this link might help - you need to enable the specific Alexa skill.  https://www.amazon.com/Symantec-Norton-Core/dp/B07GWB1NCC

1. Why would Symantec not send out this information on the original email?

2. Why is Symantec spending resources on this rather than addressing previously identified features/improvements?

Funny thing here is allowing an iOT device access to Core via its app, but we cannot access via a browser interface. From what standpoint does it even make any common security sense? Doesn't sound like peanut butter jelly time to me.

Hello

I don't seem to remember seeing that email? This can be added to the other Norton emails which I should receive. I did find 1 email today in my Spam Detector.

Have a Good Night and

Re: Core Alexa enhancements e-mail

The info I received was the Core team isn't the team working on the "Alexa Skills" addition. It is the product of a totally different team. And, the Core team IS indeed diligently working on the features customers are looking for as well as additions to make Core a better product. Found the solution, closing the thread accordingly.
