It's everyone's dream to have an assistant that makes our daily life easier, isn't it? I'm here to introduce you to a multifunctional tool that will simplify your daily life, and who knows, it might even turn out to be a great companion!

Nice to meet you, I’m Alexa

Created by Amazon in 2014, Alexa was initially intended as a virtual assistant to integrate and command by voice to Amazon Echo, a smart speaker. Over time, the potential of this app allowed it to expand its compatibility with a multiplicity of devices and add many functions that we will now see together.

Alexa: I need you

Who doesn't, right? Based on artificial intelligence, Alexa responds to voice commands, thus becoming a control center for all compatible devices.

Look at everything you'll be able to ask her!

  • Smart Device Control: Control lights, thermostats, security cameras, locks and other smart devices.
  • Music and Entertainment: You will be able to play music thanks to the integration with streaming services such as Amazon Music, Spotify and Apple Music, as well as listen to podcasts and audiobooks, just by asking Alexa you will of course be able to turn the volume up or down.
  • Real-time information: receive news, weather updates, sporting events results and everything that interests you.
  • Routine planning: You will be able to combine several actions in a single order! Even activate these orders in a personalized way with the music of your choice.

And you'll also be able to:

  • Schedule many alarms at once, set reminders and calendar events.
  • Make your purchases on Amazon.
  • Create and manage your to-do and shopping list.
  • Call and send messages to compatible devices with built-in Alexa at no additional cost.

And if that's not enough, Alexa can incorporate services developed by third parties to integrate from games to exercise or meditation applications, just to give a couple of examples.

As if she knew you

The more you use Alexa, the more familiar it will become. Your interaction with this app will give it the information it needs to adapt to your voice, the way you express yourself and your personal interests.

It will not be necessary to impose your voice or use conventional terms because Alexa understands natural language, and you'll reach a point where you will feel like you are talking to someone else!

That said, keep in mind that on iOS and Android mobile devices the only option to interact with Alexa is through voice command, there being no option through the keyboard.

Alexa: simplify my life

In its design, Alexa is clear and consistent, which allows an easy use from the first time for both iOS and Android. In both cases, we are in the presence of the same organization in tabs with the main functionalities of this app, favoring a quick navigation. It also presents easily the configuration of devices and accounts through a guide.

It's noteworthy the possibility of choosing the background and typography in two versions: 

  • White background and black letters.
  • Navy blue background and white letters.

In both cases, these contrasts collaborate in providing accessibility to people with visual difficulties.

None like you

Here are three reasons to choose Alexa over other similar apps:

  1. Easy to use: both to set it up and to use it on a daily basis.
  2. Greater Compatibility: Alexa is compatible with a wide range of smart devices, much more than its competitors (such as Google Assistant).
  3. Regular Updates: through Amazon, Alexa continuously improves and adds features.

Alexa: how to download the app

You can have Alexa for free in your life by logging in from the App Store if you have an iOS device and from the Google Play Store for Android. More than 100,000,000 downloads prove its leadership in the virtual assistant market.

Remember that it comes integrated in all Amazon smart devices!
