Skills & Games freeze alexa app
« on: January 04, 2019, 11:34:24 pm »
Suddenly when I go to skills & games from the left menu, it freezes/kills the app.  I uninstalled the app and reinstalled; the same thing occurs.

I opened my app on a tablet and it doesn't do this.

Any ideas on how to fix??

the minimum android version that works with alexa is 5.1, that could be the problem also you have an older phone.  one thing you can try is to clear your system cache.  the following will help you do it.

Thanks for your help.  I tried wiping cache, sadly that didn't solve it.  Why has it been working for a year and suddenly not?

apps and software is constantly changing.   you could have had one update too many before some features became incompatible.  but then it is my guess based on the info you gave me.

Thanks again.  Lucky, I have a number of tablets and one has 5.1 so, for now, I am good.
