With a Free Echo Dot as our holiday bonus, it’s the perfect time to start using that remote less and talking with Amazon's Alexa more.
Imagine, you’re sitting on the couch, cuddled up in your favorite blanket, drinking hot cocoa. You’re watching TV (obviously) and a trailer for a new show piques your interest. Instead of having to find the remote, that may or may not have fallen between the cushions, and search individually by each letter — you can just ask Alexa.
Another great thing about hands-free navigation is just that. It’s hands-free. If you’re in the middle of making holiday cookies, wrapping gifts or running out the door, stay focused on what you're doing instead of having to track down the remote.
Just like how you ask Alexa to set the alarm, order pizza and check the weather, she’ll understand multiple commands with the same result. Much better than those automated phone systems where you have to yell-unciate even the simplest "YEEESSS."
The best part? If you don’t already have an Alexa-enabled device in your home, you’ll get one when you make the switch this holiday season.
