I purchased an Amazon Echo recently and am writing this post to catalog useful features I’ve discovered with it.
- Use it as a Bluetooth speaker.
Say “Alexa, pair bluetooth device” to put the Echo in pairing mode. On your device, find the Echo and pair with it. Play music, profit.
- Set the volume.
The volume can be set to values between 1 and 10.
Simply say, “Alexa, volume [number between 1 and 10]” to change the volume.
- Play the radio.
“Alexa, play [radio station]”
- Flip a coin
“Alexa, flip a coin”
