When you first saw Alexa responding like a human, it felt amazing, right? From playing our favorite music to booking a taxi, the ‘supergirl’ Alexa can almost do everything when asked.
Since it’s a relatively new idea, it never fails to bewilder us. On many occasions, it’s amusing too. But there are many peculiar and cool things which most of us are unaware of. So, read below to know about the invigorating things which Alexa can do for you and for deep insights reach us at Echo helpline phone number.
Order An Uber
This is one of the Echo’s newest abilities, but saying “Alexa, order an Uber” and having an Uber summoned, and a time estimate spoken to you is a game-changer. It makes the process of using the app seem outdated.
Initiate A Fifteen-Minute Workout
I started doing the seven-minute workout when I bought my Garmin smart watch. It’s another case where I couldn’t find the right app for the workout. When you’re working out, the last thing you want to do is look at your phone. Initiating a workout with your voice and getting audio cues for when it’s time to change exercises is a significantly better experience.
Add And Check Events From Your Google Calendar
This was initially possible through the third-party automation service IFTTT (If this then that); apparently Amazon heard a lot of people were using it. Now you can ask Alexa to add events to your calendar, and see what events you have coming up. Plus, because it syncs through Google’s servers, any time you add an event through the Echo it will show up on your phone and computer, too.
Order A Pizza
While it only works with Domino’s, you can ask Alexa to order you a pizza, and a hot, fresh Domino’s pizza will show up at your door. Hopefully this skill will become popular enough that more brands hop on board. Ordering stuff through Alexa feels like the future.
Play Audio Books
If you’ve got a bunch of audio books through Audible, you can ask the Echo to play one of them to you. It’ll remember where you last left off on any of your other devices and create a chapter marker when you’re done listening, so you can pick up on your phone or tablet later. I use this one on occasion, and I’m always surprised at how well it works.
