Smart Is the New Alexy

Alexa is really smart. Ask it to tell you the weather for today or tomorrow, and it says it aloud. You can as well use voice commands to create reminders, shopping lists, start playing music from your Amazon Prime Music or Apple Music, and so on. If you have multiple Echo or other compatible speakers, you can select which of them should play the music.

One of the greatest features of Alexa is support of skills. They are typical voice commands provided by manufacturers of compatible devices and developers of compatible apps and services. A skill contains a standardized voice command and the action this command should initiate. For example, when you buy a smart vacuum cleaner, lock, or light dimmer, you need to install its skills for these devices to follow your commands sent through Alexa. There are thousands of skills available for now, too many to list in this Amazon Alexa review; you only need to select those your devices require.

If you want to start Alexa from your iPhone or iPad, a voice command won’t work the way it does with an Echo. You’ll have to start the app manually and tap the round button in the bottom, and then say your request.

Should You Download Alexa?

If you purchase Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, or any other Alexa-enabled device, you should download Alexa for iOS immediately. After you connect it, the app will become a remote dashboard for setting up your device. You can download and install skills, connect your smart home devices, set up your routine, and automatize your life any possible way.

Power Apple users will understand the importance of ecosystem for Alexa. Its skills make sense when combined with supported devices, apps, or online services. Without any of these, it’s only good to compare with Siri and find out that it’s not nearly as self-sufficient.

Pros

➠ The extreme number of commands it responds to;

➠ Downloadable skills to enhance its functions;

➠ Automation possibilities almost infinite;

➠ Multiple speakers support.

Cons

➠ Makes no sense without Amazon Echo devices or compatible ones;

➠ Cannot be initiated by voice commands (like Siri) on your iDevice.
