Q2: Wireless Speaker Isn't Responding to Hand Gestures.
A2: Follow these steps if the wireless speaker isn't responding to any voice commands:

  1. Depending on the location of your wireless speaker, the ambient conditions may prevent the speaker from detecting the voice command. Avoid placing the speaker in a noisy place or a place that is exposed to strong winds or echoes (sound reflections).
  2. Make sure that the built-in microphones aren't blocked.
  3. Instead of giving the voice command, try performing the equivalent touch-free gesture.
  4. You may have given the voice command too quickly for your wireless speaker to detect. Try talking a little more slowly to the speaker.
  5. The built-in microphones of your wireless speaker may be disabled. Press the (microphone off) button.
