AnkerMake (United States) - Press Release: Hey AnkerMake fan.
After months of non-stop hard work, the wait's finally over for AnkerMake M5.
Thank you for all the support! Whether you backed us on Kickstarter, pre-ordered, or beta-tested, you were able to make M5 better along the way with your valuable feedback.
We're also proud to announce if you're in the US/UK/DE and EU, you can order M5 with fast and free shipping right now! Plus, you'll get 24-hour order processing!
So if you missed the Kickstarter or pre-order deals, now is the time to order. Start 2023 right and make your printing dreams come true.
From Day 1, we've been committed to creating high-speed, intelligent, and quality 3D printers for our fellow makers. That's why we launched M5 on Kickstarter and showed off the 5X faster speed and easy-to-connect design.
Part of the initial design was to use Alexa and the Google Assistant to access your printer and check on the print status. For the Google Assistant, we planned to use the tool Conversational Actions to develop this feature. However, Google decided to discontinue Conversational Actions in June.
We've spent the past few months trying to develop a workaround, but the results don't meet our expectations for a positive user experience.
After a tough round of discussions, we have decided to remove the Google Assistant feature. We apologize for any disappointment and inconvenience.
But you can still check the printer status of AnkerMake M5 via Alexa. There's an update coming via OTA or the AnkerMake app on January 16th. Alexa's standing by and waiting to help.
We can't wait to hear what you think about voice control. And we'll keep you updated on any developments to the AnkerMake software.
As always, thanks for all the love and support. We can't wait to see what you make!
The AnkerMake Team
