Interesting. I thought the echo show did not officially support a web browser so they probably didn't put much time into making sure everything worked nicely. Some thoughts, you could make sure UI3's audio is muted so UI3 isn't doing anything with audio at all. You could also choose a lower resolution stream to save resources.FYSA: I purchased an Amazon echo show second generation and when the UI3 interface is running on the Silk browser, the echo show has an issue responding to voice requests; the audio is cut off after a couple of seconds.
Let’s say I asked for the time which is 8:07 for example. The response is “The time is eigh”, so the audio cuts out.
I am thinking there is not enough memory or processor power to handle both tasks simultaneously.
Also, When I launch UI3 on the Silk browser, I have to “tap to start HTML 5” (something to that effect) on the silk browser, and I don’t get that message using the Silk browser on my fire HD 8 tablet.
You'll likely be seeing more of those warnings about clicking to begin playback as more browsers implement user-input requirements before allowing audio and/or video to play.
