This skill is an acoustical metronome that plays a regular drumbeat. You can use it to time yourself or to help you keep the beat while practicing music. You can pick any rate between 40 and 199 beats per minute. It will play the beats until you say 'Alexa, stop'. If you want more, you can ask it to resume, or switch to a new rate.
Was very happy to find this until I found that it automatically stops after 90 seconds. It should play until stopped. Also needs volume boost, and would be nice if you could play 4/4 time, 3/4 time, etcetera. Then it would be worthy of five stars.
Notes for the developer: 1. The welcome bit should only play the first time the function is summoned ( first time each day if you want a branding opportunity) 2. should allow for time specification `metronome play <$bpm> for <$minutes> minutes` 3. allow sample specifiers like `metronome set instrument <$name>` and `metronome list instruments` (tambourine, clave, hi-hat)
Not loud enough to hear in relation to Alexa voice. For example if the Alexa voice is at "5", the metronome sounds like it's at "1". Second, the beat should go on until you say "Stop" or better yet play for a Number of measures of minutes.
