Amazon Alexa app no longer working

2019-07-12, 0:05 AM

Don't know when since I don't use the app very often, but today I had a need and could not get the app to open. Rebooted the phone, updated the app, cleared cache, uninstalled the updates (it's a built-in app since my phone is the Amazon variant). The app just gets to a blank screen and on the stock version, a spinning circle. I went ahead and re-did the updates, and when I try to start it, it goes to a blank white screen with a rotating circle....


How to fix?


Edit: After about 10 minutes or more (not really watching) it gives an error that 'no network available' even though Wi-Fi and Cellular data are both working, and I can use other apps on the phone to access the internet as well as other devices on the local network, so not thinking it's a real error....

Hi MoHoelX,


Thanks for the post. This is odd. I'd like to confirm, did you also clear the data of the app? Since it's a built-in app, let's try testing the app in safe mode. 


To Enable Safe Mode
1. Press and hold the Power button until Power off comes up on the screen.
2. Touch and HOLD Power off on the screen until reboot to safe mode appears.


Let me know. 


Best regards,
Motorola-Lenovo Support
