Alexa is the virtual assistant built into every Amazon Echo. If you have recently added this to your smart home, here’s how you can make it work.
Start by connecting your Echo’s power supply and installing the Amazon Alexa app on your phone. Then, ensure that your phone or tablet is connected to your Echo’s Wi-Fi network. Continue by switching to the app and choosing Set up a new device. You may then enter your Amazon username and password. Alexa will be up and running after you select your Wi-Fi network and entering its password.
To set up an Echo or Echo Dot, on the other hand, you will need to plug its power supply into a wall socket. It will take a couple of seconds for it to get started. Once done, Alexa will tell you to use the app to complete the setup. You will need to sign in with your Amazon account. Next, go to your phone’s and Wi-Fi settings. Tap on your Echo, which will appear on the list. It will then be connected without using a password. You can then switch back to the Alexa app and Alexa should announce that she is ready to go. You may test it by asking any questions and she should respond.
