Alexa is an AI virtual assistance tool developed by Amazon. Originally Alexa was only available on Amazon devices but now anyone can use Alexa with a compatible device like our LumiCharge integrated lamps, chargers and speakers. Alexa can help make your life easier in many ways, and new skills are being added every day. But here are 10 of our favorite ways to use Alexa on your LumiCharge.
1 - Ask for the weather
Stay on top of the weather with Alexa’s help.
"Alexa, what's the weather like?"
"Alexa, will it rain today?"
"Alexa, will I need an umbrella today?"
"Alexa, what's the weather going to be like this weekend?”
2 - Ask about current news
Alexa’s extensive database is on the pulse of everything so that means you can stay up to date on current happenings, news, and events.
"Alexa, what's in the news?"
“Alexa play news from [news outlet]”
Alexa tell me the news”
3 - Check your email
Alexa can open and read your emails with the following prompts.
“Alexa read my email”
“Alexa check my email”
4 - Alarm
Ask Alexa to set an alarm or a timer for you then check the status of that timer or cancel it.
“Alexa set an alarm for 8 AM.”
“Alexa set a yoga timer for 20 minutes,”
“Alexa, how much time is left on the yoga timer?”
“Alexa cancel the 8 AM alarm.”
5 - Date and time
Alexa’s date and time functions allow you to confirm the date and time for today as well as check what days holidays fall on.
“Alexa, what time is it?”
“Alexa, what is today’s date?”
“Alexa, when is thanksgiving this year?”
6 - Shop on amazon
This Alexa skill is not surprising considering that Alexa is an Amazon creation. Ask Alexa to track your order, add something to your cart or add an item to your shopping list
“Alexa, where is my stuff?” Or, “Alexa, track my order.”
“Alexa, add [item] to my shopping list.”
“Alexa, add [item name] to my Amazon cart.”
7 - Listen to book on audible
Alexa also works really well for Audible, another amazon service for audiobooks.
“Alexa, play [book title]”
“Alexa, resume [book title]”
“Alexa, go to chapter [#]”
8 - Play music
Alexa will play music from Pandora, Apple Music and Podcasts, iHeart Radio, Amazon Music, Spotify, and more. You can choose a specific song, artist, ask Alexa to repeat or start over.
“Alexa, play [song] by [artist].”
9 - Control smart devices like lightbulbs
With Alexa, you can turn your home into a smart home and communicate with smart devices like bulbs, doors, or thermostats.
“Alexa, set the temperature to 79.”
“Alexa, turn on the bathroom light.”
“Alexa, dim the lights to 40%.”
“Alexa, turn off the living room light.”
10 - Recipe
Not sure how to make cookies, french toast or poach an egg? Alexa will help you figure it out.
“Alexa, how do you make french toast?”
