Geting Started with Amazon Alexa

Who, er, what is Amazon Alexa, you ask? Alexa is the brain behind the Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Amazon Echo Show and the voice-controlled assistant inside the Fire TV. The female voice lives in the cloud, and is thus always up to date. This virtual personal aide learns your voice and preferences as you use her. She also has her own companion Alexa app for Android and iOS devices.

Amazon gave Alexa plenty of smarts, allowing you to control your music, news, weather, alarms, smart home devices and streaming media device with just the power of your voice. Alexa can get you directions, track your calendar, order products off of Amazon, read books, find local businesses and answer your questions by grabbing information off of Wikipedia. She can do so much that you’ll want to make sure you're taking full advantage of this personal assistant.
