8 things your Alexa can do
Sure, Alexa can give you weather updates and play your favorite music, but there’s so much more your Alexa-enabled device can do. We’re here to give you the scoop!
Ask Alexa to give you a beat
Feel like rapping? Ask Alexa to give you a beat. She’ll offer up different sounds for you to freestyle to.
Use Alexa as a kitchen assistant
Hands covered in flour? Alexa can tell you how many cups are in a quart, how many tablespoons are in a stick of butter, and even set a timer!
Have Alexa cheer you up
Have the Monday blues? Tell Alexa you’re sad and she’ll offer support and give encouraging tips to better your mood.
Alexa can get into character
Is there a Star Wars fan in your home? Ask Alexa to talk like Yoda or say, “Alexa, I am your father.” Her clever response may surprise you. Also try, “Alexa, ask Pikachu to talk,” and chat away!
Take whatever you’re listening to with you. Listening to a podcast of audiobook in the kitchen but need to step outside? Say, “Alexa, send that to my phone” to continue listening.
Find your lost phone
Forgot where you left your phone? If it’s connected to Alexa, just say, “Alexa, find my phone” and she’ll make it ring.
Get a timeout assist
Kids misbehaving? Alexa can set a time out time for up to 5 minutes. Alexa will remind once per minute to remain quiet and will even commend on a job well done. Just say, “Alexa, open Time Out Timer.”
Alexa has kid-friendly games
Freeze Dance, The Floor is Lava, and Simon Says, just to name a few! Alexa has the perfect game to play after school, during playdates, or on a rainy day. Get your child’s mind and body moving with activities like Animal Workout, Amazon Math, and Travel Quest.
