Alexa Routine - "Stop Audio" not functional

I was setting up some Alex routines today, and have discovered the the "stop audio" in device settings does not work.  I can say "Alexa, stop" or "Alexa, stop playback" and it operates as I would expect, but it seems that the device settings routine "stop audio" does not work.

 

Anyone have any work arounds for having audio stop through Alex Routines?

 

Cheers.

Re: Alexa Routine - "Stop Audio" not functional

Hello CamVFX, 

 

Thank you for reaching out via the Community. Welcome to the site. 

 

I can confirm this is correct, you cannot use the 'Stop Audio' routine with Bose speakers. I'm not sure if this service is limited to Echo only speakers, (I haven't had the opportunity to test with other Non-Bose products.) 

 

I will certainly put a request through to see if this is something we can add support for, as some routines certainly work with our speakers. 

 

Kind regards,

You can power off a bose speaker from an Alexa routine though.
