For many, using Alexa unit might seem difficult at first, but once you get the hang of it, you won’t help to enjoy the fun that this device can offer. Once you have your Echo Dot or Amazon Echo set, and having set up your Alexa, using it becomes a breeze. It all comes down to what you say and how you say it, or whether you want to use it in different rooms at once.
The good thing about Alexa is that it goes beyond just your phone, as you can find it in different speakers as well as Amazon’s Fire TV and the company’s Fire tablets. All the same, talking to Alexa is not as straightforward as you would communicate to a person, but you can always use natural language anyway. When speaking to the device, however, make sure to check and confirm that the LED ring on the device is lit, and then you can speak, but don’t give it multiple commands at a go.
The device is capable of carrying out numerous functions that you can add via its app. This way, you can ask the device several general questions (like the time) and get answers to your queries. Even better, some of the devices in the US can recognize the user’s voices and provide information that is specific to those people.
In the United Kingdom, smart light bulbs, as well as thermostats and other smart devices, can be used with the app to give users the best experience possible. But the good news is that most other apps out there can help when it comes to making the most of your Alexa as well.
Audio and music playback options
Another thing that you will come to love about Alexa is how great it can be when it comes to playing music with the device. Whether you want to add tracks to your Amazon account or playing music right from your Prime Music account, you can always go the easiest way for you. Things get better when you have the Amazon Echo or Dot since you can easily connect your Alexa app with your phone using Bluetooth and play music with it as you would with a Bluetooth speaker.
And you can always take things further, especially if you want to play music in different rooms using Alexa. This way, you can create several Echo devices using your Alexa app, and then ask it to play music to the group or a given device.
Messaging and voice calling
Another thing you can use this unit for is sending messages and making voice calls to other people using Echo. It is quite a straightforward process, but you can always scout around a bit, for what it takes to get it done.
Amazon has also added a new tech to Alexas, so you can always request the device to act as a reminder on a certain day, date or time. At exactly the specified time, the signal will go off as a blue ring on the device alongside a voice reminder. Besides, the same reminder will go off on your phone’s Alexa app too.
Using your Alexa app is as fun as it gets, all you need is venture into as many of its opportunities as you want. And you will always find something to be reckoned with about this unit. Life doesn’t get any better.
