5 things to do with the Amazon Echo

laundrapp for amazon echo alexa

The Amazon Echo is now available in the UK! You may have heard about Amazon’s newest product, but if you haven’t, don’t worry we’ll explain everything. Technically it’s a hands-free speaker you control with your voice, but in reality it’s so much more!

The speaker is called Alexa, that’s right she’s not an ‘it’ but a ‘she’, and she’ll quickly become your best friend. There are so many unique and quirky features to the Amazon Echo, we wanted to share our favourite features with you.

1. Listen to audio books

Alexa will read to you all day without needing to take a breath. You can setup your Audible account or you can even use your Kindle library and have Alexa read to you as you clean, eat or whilst you’re drifting off to sleep.

2. Play your favourite songs

What would be the point of having a talking speaker if you couldn’t listen to your favourite tracks? Alexa can play music from a range of platforms such as Prime Music, Spotify, TuneIn and Amazon Music. You’ve got an extensive collection to choose from so if you’re a metal head, indie rocker or jazz enthusiast, Alexa’s got you covered.

3. Ease your commute

Ever been rushing around getting ready in the morning and just had no time to check the train times? We’ve all been there and Alexa knows the struggle. You just have to ask her to check your commute and she’ll update you on what’s happening. It’s as simple as that.

4. Weather updates

Amazon knows how much us Brits love to talk about the weather, so Alexa is equipped for some pretty extensive conversations. You can ask about today’s weather or tomorrow’s or even this weekend’s or next week’s, there’s so much choice, go wild!

5. Order you Laundry

That’s right! You can use Laundrapp with just your voice. Alexa can help schedule your collection and delivery times for you, making your entire laundry process even easier!

These are some of our favourite Alexa features but there’s  so much more to play around with. The Amazon Echo is priced at £149.99, but we know once you’ve got your hands on one you won’t go back. Discover all the features the Amazon Echo has to offer.
