It's a nice feature to have though, even if you don't use it often. I almost always use it to turn on my stuff. Sometimes use it for Pause and Play. Other than that, I use buttons. It's really convenient to walk in the house with my food and say, "Alexa, it's game time" and then when I walk in the garage (where my equipment is now)the TV is on and set to CBS which is usually the channel the football game is on. Or "Let's watch a movie", "turn on old school gaming", etc. Things are ready to go by the time I settle in.I'm just not into voice control of my things. I've not tried it, but as a thought experiment it doesn't seem like it would be easier than just pushing buttons on the remote.
