Life With Alexa

I’ve been using Alexa for about a week at my office and I am planning to add on in my home soon. It hasn’t changed my life yet but it has made making lists and putting on music much easier. I’m a big fan of asking for riddles(I will say she tends to repeat the same ones) and for asking for jokes. Tho the jokes are usually only funny because they are so lame.

Wake commands can be changed but are limited to: “Alexa,” “Echo,” “Amazon,” or “Computer.”

Alexa Dot 2

This mini version of the Echo does all the same wireless search and smart-home tricks that the full-size model does.

Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker—it can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through a 3.5 mm audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose. Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more—instantly.

Echo Dot can hear you from across the room, even while music is playing. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Dot responds instantly. If you have more than one Echo or Echo Dot, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you’re closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).
