Multiple audio input
howi42 last edited by
All modules seem to lock the audio input device when starting,
like MMM-GoogleAssistant or MMM- Alexa.
What can I do if I want to run more than one module waiting for a magic word ?
Sometimes I might want to use Alexa, but in other situations the Google Assistant.
Maybe there is a way to make a module kind of ‘active’ for audio input ?
Pressing a button or using another module to distribute the request ?
How about using
AssistantPi? That is not the answer to your question, but it could be help for your situation.

Thanks, I will give it try.
BTW, I tried AlexaPi earlier, not the best results.
It crashes always when questions get a bit longer.
Restart helps, but that is not a good option.
Just for completeness :
This is a typical result if you ask Alexa a longer question, like :
How is the weather in Berlin
