Just moved to a new phone and can't use the app at all. The app won't let me either sign in or even create a new account. So now I'm left with a non functional talksocket, that's nothing more than a glorified pop socket.
iPhones have Siri and Android phones have Ok, Google, but if you want to use Alexa, you need to open the app on your phone. TalkSocket gives you always-on access to Alexa wherever you go. I followed the instructions to set it up and then it just worked. Easily control your home, check on Amazon deliveries, etc. when you're away from an Alexa device.
I was quick to back TalkSocket on Kickstarter and anxiously awaiting for its arrival. Although I had some initial challenges getting it setup, I've since had no problems whatsoever with it. As an Alexa skill developer who is focused on creating voice experiences that go with you when you leave home, this device is exactly what is needed to take Alexa wherever you go. I've used it multiple times in Disneyland and Disney World and despite the crowd noises, Alexa was able to understand me with no troubles (if anything, I had trouble heading the response from my phone).
Me and a friend were some of the first people to pledge money to kickstarter when this product was announced. We were intrigued and excited by the idea and waited for the finished product. When the talk socket arrived, I immediately charged the device and had it hooked up and working within hours! That was the first and only time this product worked. I went to use is again the next day and the device, although displayed it was connected to my phone, would not work. I am very disappointed and annoyed…I now have a very expensive pop socket for my phone without any of the amazing features promised. Great idea, not worth the money!
“How did I live without a TalkSocket? Now I can order, ask or command wherever, whenever I want. Alexa is Free to roam!”

You Asked, We Answered.
We've built it to last 1-3 days of average usage. The more you use your TalkSocket the faster the battery will drain. The good thing is that it only uses battery when initiating the wake word.
Absolutely not. We are only the conduit between your voice and the Alexa app on your phone. As Amazon continues to improve the security of their app, you'll benefit any improvements while using your TalkSocket.
We built the companion app to ensure our customers have the easiest onboarding process. Sometimes tech can be frustrating to setup...not a TalkSocket. We walk you through everything step, step-by-step. Additionally, the app allows you to check the battery life and even change the LED color ring to your color of choice.
We're able to make the TalkSocket so small and sexy due to your phone doing all the heavy lifting. You need to have your phone within Bluetooth distance of the TalkSocket to properly work. But, what's cool about Bluetooth is that you could have your phone in your backpack and the TalkSocket clipped to a PopSockets PopChain for hands-free access. That way when you're out for a jog with your Bluetooth headphones in, you'd be able to tell Alexa to play the next song or ask what the weather conditions look like for the next hour.
It does not have a built-in speaker. It uses whatever your audio output is for your phone. That means if you're in the backyard connected to a Bluetooth speaker, the response will come from there when using a TalkSocket. Or if you have Bluetooth in your car, ask your question and the answer will come through your vehicles speakers. Or even better, tell Alexa to play your favorite podcast while on a walk and it will play through your headphones. Basically, TalkSocket, turns all your audio Bluetooth products into being voice assistant enabled. Radical, right?
We have the standard 1 year limited warranty. But with a twist...we care about our customers so we'll do everything we can without putting the business in jeopardy of going under.
At TalkGo, we wish every day was Taco Tuesday so what better way to celebrate this than a name that makes our mouth water. Plus TalkGo is a pretty cool name. It says what our product does, talking, on-the-go, and our logo is a bird, birds don't have hands and our product can be used hands-free. Is today Tuesday?
