If you have multiple Amazon Echo devices in your home, you won’t ever need to yell at your family members to say “Dinner is ready.” or “Guys, brush your teeth.” A new Alexa update brings the ability to use Echo devices as one-way intercoms. All you need to do is saying something like;
- “Alexa, announce that breakfast is ready.”
- “Alexa, tell everyone to brush teeth.”
- “Alexa, broadcast we are going to bed.”
When you use one of these commands, Alexa will broadcast your message to every Echo device in your home. The broadcasted message will not use Alexa’s voice. Instead, your message will be broadcasted in your voice. This feature works on Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Dot, Echo Show, and Echo Spot devices. Alexa Announcements feature is only available in US and Canada right now but we can expect that other countries will use this feature soon.
