Buttons for Alexa - Help page


- Amazon is limiting connections occasionally, it may happen app fails to connect to Alexa and cannot run the routine. You will have to retry later.

- Backup import is not working on app version <= 7.4


Check the tutorial to get started:


Notice: Routine with response output set to Alexa phone may not work. Use the default option "the device you speak to" or a real Echo device

PRO license

Free version allow to run only one routine (the first on the list). All other routines will not be executed. All other advanced features (labels, Tasker, etc) will work only with the license

Widgets are not working

If your phone/tablet launcher does not allow you to add a widget on your phone main screen, we suggest you to install a third-party launcher, for example Nova Launcher.
If the widget is added on the main screen, but when you press it does not do anything please check:
- Open main left menu, go on Settings and choose Reset widgets
- Open your phone settings, go on Buttons for Alexa app settings and ensure Auto run permission is granted
- Optionally, you may try to disable all battery saving permission for this app, check the tutorial dontkillmyapp.com/

Nothing works

First try uninstall and reinstall the app to redo Alexa login correctly
Ensure you have setup routine correctly, check this page
