The Synappx administrator must register an echo-enabled smart speaker to a workspace. Then, use voice commands by selecting the microphone icon in the Synappx Meeting Assistant.

To stop voice control, select the microphone icon again and it will change back to gray.

Synappx Meeting's voice control feature is based on the "My Sharp" skill for Amazon Alexa. Before each voice command, you need to activate the "My Sharp" skill by saying:

Alexa, ask "My Sharp."
or
Alexa, open "My Sharp."
