If anyone would like to test i have a new version of the snips addon in this repository: https://github.com/tschmidty69/hassio-snips. It seems to work only using the mosquitto mqtt client instead of the built in one, so install and get that running first.
This updates the add on to use the latest version of snips and adds a default assistant that can trigger the built in intents provided by conversation and shopping_list.
Add this to your configuration:
snips: shopping_list: input_boolean: test_light: name: test light initial: off
Hey snips, add beer to my shopping list
I’ve added beer to your shopping list
Hey Snips, what is on my shopping list
These are the top 1 items on your shopping list, beer
Hey Snips, turn the test light off
Turned off the test light
With a USB mic and speakers hooked up to a pi 3, TTS works for response and the snips_say services.
This will provide a good example for you to see what snips can do.
