Amazon Echo devices are a household name these days. And as they advertised some time ago, these are not smart speakers but surely a member of the family.
But have you unleashed your Amazon Echo device with Alexa to its full potential? Well, these powerful devices with the power of MediaTek chipsets are capable of performing much more than you can imagine. Not just answer your questions and offer you news updates, they can serve some really useful purposes in your household.
So here we have brought a list of things that you can try with your Amazon Echo devices in 2022 and 2023 and 2024 and even beyond. Here we go!
Cast Echo to Other Devices and Vice Versa:
If you wish to hear your smart TV better through the Amazon Echo smart speaker, you can connect both these via Bluetooth and get a better TV experience in your living room. These Alexa devices have really good connectivity and they can also help you control your smart appliances like smart TV, smart Microwave, smart thermostat etc. through your voice command.
Similarly, if you have more than one Echo device in your home, you can connect all of these to one another and can operate any of them from anywhere in your home.
Safeguard Your Home:
If you leave your home locked and it’s not too safe, you could be worried about someone breaking in. Do not worry because Alexa is there to assist you. You can go for the Alexa Guard feature that guards your house and offers you alerts if it hears anything suspicious. For instance, if you are not at home and it hears glass breaking or something else that is worth informing, it will offer you an update and you can take further action.
All you need to do is, before you leave your home, say, “Alexa, I am leaving”. Alexa will get activated and would hear noises that might appear suspicious. Similarly, it will stop listening to the voices when you arrive and say, “Alexa, I am home”. And don’t worry because Alexa recognizes voices and if someone else offers these instructions, Alexa will still provide you updates.
Find Your Lose Phone:
Doesn’t it offer a mini heart attack when you find your phone missing? Most people leave all their work and start finding their phones and it is so frustrating when you do not have any other person whose phone you can use to give a call to your phone.
In such a case, your phone, if connected to your Echo device, could be found using Alexa. All you need to do is ask Alexa to give a ring to your smartphone. However, this might not be too helpful if your phone is silent. Alexa will still give you a ring, but you might not be able to find it.
These are some of the newest tricks that people have been trying on their Amazon Echo devices with MediaTek chipsets. And since these devices have really good connectivity, they assist in a lot of other functions that could be served with just voice instructions. So if you ever used these features with Amazon Echo devices, do inform me in the comment section.
And if you have not used them till now, why not offer them a shot?
