    Included in mandatory update.

    Yea!

    (I am assuming full access to Amazon Music)

    BTW, Can we all agree the Gen 4 body style(s) have aged incredibly well?

    Yup.

    I almost missed it since it was on the last page of Apps (which I would not normally scroll to).

    Seems to work well, but on my (very short) test of accessing Amazon Music, it seems to take a tad longer to bring up a tune than doing so directly via iPhone. That could be my imagination, though.r

    I’ve noticed something odd ever since this update. The car is dropping phone calls mid call. It then becomes completely unresponsive to any other calls. It’s still connected for audio, and it appears that it’s still connected for phone for awhile, the. It eventually drops the phone connection, which can’t be reconnected until the car is shut off and started back up. Just started happening after the Entune update. Is it just me?

    Just got the new update. I'll have to look for Alexa, or Amazon Music on there. Thanks!

    Alexa comes automatically with the upgrade.

    On the chance you or anyone else is not familiar with Amazon Music, I think you need to do that separately on your Amazon Account — been awhile so I forget the exact process. I do recall it was very easy, and the basic version — still with a huge library — is free with Prime. The pay version allow access to vritually everything, including the newest releases. I also access IHeart Radio Podcasts and my hometown Radio station through it.

    For a person with my technical limitations It is near perfect.

    Not the only one, I have the same observation. Alexa connection will drop after a few songs and then asking me to reconnect on the app. And it "thinks" a lot and the whole screen becomes unresponsive even to the physical buttons. Also I noticed my volume level is different. Once I get in the car, open the app with Alexa, have Alexa play a songs, few seconds later volume changes louder. Even when Im not playing a song through Alexa , (radio) same thing occurs . Starts soft then hits loud. Once I deleted Alexa all together, volume is back to normal. Maybe it has something to do with my Echo's volume level at home? but after one day of using Alexa in the car, Alexa should just stay at home.
