    I successfully created a virtual device in Autovoice and Alexa identified it and added it to the device list. I also successfully created a profile and task in Tasker that responds to this device.

    My problem is that when I tell Alexa to interact with the virtual device, she does it but then says "device did not respond", even though it worked.

    Thanks.

    So everything works, but Alexa says it didn't respond?

    Did you try removing and re-adding that device in AutoVoice? Or refreshing devices in Alexa?

    I just did both things, but I am still getting the same response from Alexa. But it is actually working.

    I have the same problem but in addition to the "not responding" message, I can't specify a task like "set light to 20%" in the alexa app while making a routine. It is not possible to select anything the device is supposed to do. It works only if I say "Set <device> to 20%" or something but I wanted to use a routine.

    Edit: Ok, so I found out what was wrong. Alexa always would discover the AutoVoice device as a lamp but I also enabled volume control, etc. in the AutoVoice app. When I only enable on/off, brightness and color, it works like a charm. I guess it has maybe something to do with the "german Alexa" not supporting volume or media control on other devices?!
