'Alexa Announcements' feature comes to Canadian Amazon Echos
07 April, 2018, 00:40 | Author: Janis Wilson
Users can order Alexa to "announce" something in one Echo device, and then it will transmit the announcement throughout all the devices in the house.
With Alexa Announcements, you can ask Alexa to make announcements on all compatible Echo devices in your household. "Just say 'Ok Google, broadcast it's time for school!' and your message will broadcast to all Assistant-enabled speakers in your home", Google Home Product Manager Alex Duong and Google Assistant Software Engineer Nam Do explained at the time.
Amazon's Echo family of devices are great on their own, but when paired with the right smart home device, it's a lot more compelling.
As with other Alexa features, we can expect to see Amazon gradually roll Announcements out more widely in the coming weeks and months. Third-party Alexa devices aren't included. So, as with the Echo Show and Echo Spot, you can have it pull up a feed from one of your smart home security cameras. You should see a list of icons, including News, Smart Home, Weather and the new Music option. The retailer's latest announcement may help drive home that fact.
You are able to quickly get an audio message out to everyone in the household (or at those within earshot of an Echo speaker) by saying "Alexa, broadcast" or "Alexa, announce" followed by whatever you want to say.
Amazon also added a new feature to Amazon Key: entry and exit clips for guests, friends, and family.
