Alexa as Mycroft mic / speaker

I know Alexa doesn’t have the processing power to become a Mycroft by wondering if it could become the front-end mic/ speaker to Mycroft running on my Linux server

Hey Arden, welcome to the Forums :slight_smile:

The short answer is unfortunately - it’s very unlikely.

I’ve seen a few people ask similar questions - more often about Google Mini’s, and I recently found a detailed write up of one persons attempts to get custom code running on them:

It’s a two part series and very detailed but also shows just how much effort is required to get any new code running on them.

So you are very welcome to try, but unless the challenge really excites you, I would look at some other more open hardware to replace it.
