The app also includes a “devices“, where you can view all connected smart home devices, filter them quickly and group them by rooms, such as the bedroom or kitchen. Another notable feature is the pButton dedicated to Alexa and the return of functions such as “Map View“, which shows the devices in the house plan, although this function is currently only available on iOS.

The redesigned Alexa app is now available for both Android and iOS, marking a significant step towards simplifying the management of a smart home. However, a distinctive element of Amazon compared to Google the insertion of advertising in the app remains, in particular in the "Other“, where Amazon products are highlighted.

This aspect, unfortunately, is the price to pay for Amazon products that don't cost much. It is worth mentioning that many users are complaining about the automatic full-screen ads on Fire TV Sticks.
