Assistant camera

Hi @chassk1224,

Thank you for reaching out to Alfred!

It depends on your Camera Phone. You can not launch Alfred remotely if your Camera Phone is an iOS device. You can wake up your Android Camera by tapping the yellow circle on camera list. If that fails, the only way to bring it back online is regaining physical access to the device.

Hope it helps!


this is the second time i used alfred, it happened to me both times, it worked for 2 weeks stops/ and off line. even when i use settings and swipe offline button to on, it wont budge. tried goog assistant:computer::video_camera::electric_plug::question::question::question::question::worried:, it worked one day, its not the connection, because i still use my phone and laptop, im 3 feet away from all 3 phones.

ready to give up again



It’s the viewer and I figured that this pesky shit is always going on in my email account Help
