By now, you have heard of numerous facts about Amazon Alexa. However, there is still so much to learn about this wonderful operating system. It is more than just a box that carries out commands you dictate to it. Read the text below to find out more interesting tidbits about it.
Plan A Vacation
Amazon Alexa can handle so much more than just singular commands. It can actually perform a series of commands to accomplish a complicated task. One of the most impressive things it can do is to plan a vacation for you. Alexa can help you pick out cheap flights, track flights, book hotels, and many more. Do not worry if you are on a tight budget because Alexa can still help you out. Simply ask it, “Alexa, where can I go for five hundred dollars?” and then you will receive a couple of vacation suggestions that are appropriate for you and your budget.
Send Text Messages
Did you know that you can send text messages without the need to use your hands? All you need to do is to set up your favorite or frequently used contacts and then you can order Alexa to send an SMS about virtually anything. All you need to do is to know the name of the specific contact as well as your desired message. It is so easy and it eliminates the need to type the message yourself.
Food Or Wine Recommendations
Another smart development to Alexa is its ability to give out food or wine recommendations. The recommendations are based on the profile built on your preferences. You can take the dish you are eating at that moment and then ask for the best wine that you can pair it with. And this can be done on whichever food you are eating at that moment, from bacon strips to cheese. It is great because it is just like having your very own wine sommelier.
Board Game Manuals
Don’t you just hate it when you accidentally lose the physical manuals to your board games? That will no longer be a problem for as long as you have Amazon Alexa. Alexa houses all of the different manuals for different games so that you won’t struggle with storing them. It could be Monopoly or Pandemic and Alexa will still have all of the manuals for these games. It is so convenient because it is paperless so that you no longer have to worry about keeping track of the various sheets of manuals. You can also ask Alexa to dictate specific sections or to clarify some rules.
Alexa is also capable of helping you order food without needing you to lift a finger or to get up from the couch. There is a partner app called Easy Order that you can install into Alexa so that you can effortlessly order from the various pizza places of your choice. Alexa can also track your order and give regular updates. You can do all of these without ever getting up from your couch!
