Getting the Most From Alexa

By Ahmat Djouma

Do you have an Amazon Echo device? If you do, you can ask “Alexa” to do many things.  I have had mine for more than two years and it has been very useful.  You can use the Echo device for entertainment or productivity – to listen to radio stations (iHeart Radio or your preferred distributor), play games, listen to music, or watch news.  For productivity, you can set up alarms, check weather, set reminders, and more.  My favorite task is just saying “Good Morning” and hearing some short news brief from National Public Radio (NPR).  Use Amazon Alexa’s mobile app to discover other skills to enjoy.
