Amazon Alexa

Integrated Virtual Assistant

Meet the Maker: Amazon
Model: Amazon Show/ Amazon Echo

Description

Amazon Alexa is an integrated virtual assistant which provides numerous Accessibility features via compatible devices such as Amazon Show and Amazon Echo Speakers.

Amazon Echo aims to make your life easier at home by enabling you to use your voice to set timers, add items to lists, and create calendar events and reminders. You can also check the news, weather, or traffic. Ask for sports scores, movie showtimes, restaurant hours, or information.

Manage compatible smart home devices using your voice. Switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn on the coffee maker on your way to the kitchen, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie.

Make hands-free calls to the Alexa app or another Echo. Use Announcements to send voice messages to every room with a supported Echo device, or use Drop In as a two-way intercom between rooms.
