it would be great to get access to the firmware to enable the microphone and make it work as an assistant via Google API or Alexa API

Anyway of adding a 3.5mm line in socket to connect an Amazon Alexa to it ?

I also want to know if this is possible.

I’ve got four of these around the house but connected via bluetooth (which is pretty unstable) they are not in sync.

Would be great to be able to plug directly into an amazon dot?

Any suggestions for a work around would be great?

Mine has stopped charging so is only usable plugged in. Is this a common problem can it be fixed easily? I checked various voltages on the battery board but cant find any reference to what they should be.

Mine stopped charging too. I just changed all the batteries and it all works fine again now.
