It looks as if it just opens programs, so yes it would load etouch, but apart from that you cannot do anything else like put tracks on.

There are other apps that you can use to play music using your voice that is not from amazon store, that costs 5 a month.

It might be possible in conjunction with event ghost or auto it, but would need to know what scripts to write for each command like search and then spelling or word recognition for selecting/searching tracks.

A waste of time really, why go through all that hassle when you can just use another program without the hassle?

Remember this is a jukebox, not a media player, you have media players that are not jukeboxes. Which can already allow voice commands.

One program to use is www.voxcommando.com and use that with event ghost.

Guess I'm just a gadget freak. Got the echo dot and thought it would be a fun gimic if people could talk to the juke.

That vox thing looks interesting.
