Just plug the device and download the Alexa app on your mobile from the Play Store or App Store and you’re set. This hands-free smart speaker connects to Alexa voice service and answers any question you ask, for instance, ask Alexa, “What’s in the news today?” This intelligent voice assistant will trawl through the web and speak the appropriate answer aloud.

Use announcements like a one-way intercom to broadcast messages to all your Echo devices.
