Are you speaking of the carrot studios skill or did Chamberlain have an official skill at one time?

I had the Carrot Studios skill and it was working perfectly. Did Chamberlain actually yank it? I just don't understand the problem here. They won't release a skill themselves and then when someone else does they feel the need to have it removed?? Why have a wifi enabled garage opener if they are not going to enable it with the ever growing smart home technologies? It's pathetic.

I had the "Unofficial MyQ" app (I believe from Carrot Studios) installed on Alexa and all of a sudden about a month ago, the skill disappeared and the app was gone from my Alexa app.  It was working so well without a glitch.  Worked flawlessly to use voice commands via Alexa to open and close my garage.  I'm very disappointed that someone pulled and uninstalled the this App.  Now, I no longer use MQ garage opener and I'm back to using the remote.  I was so excited and happy with the App when it was available.  I would even pay for it for an official MQ App.  Seems like Chamberlain is being either greedy or is not willing to provide such a useful skill to us.  Very disappointed!  If there is another alternative, please share...

It was pulled from Alexa as it opens a vector of home robbery... If you can yell at an alexa from OUTSIDE the home... ALEXA OPEN THE GARAGE DOOR!! ALEXA UNLOCK THE FRONT DOOR... why would they give someone that option? There are some ADA laws they broke as well.
