Alexa is a cloud-based voice service that can help you with tasks, entertainment, general information, and more — often personified as “her” or “she.” Whether you’re at home or on the go, Alexa is designed to make your life easier by letting you voice control your world. Using Alexa is as simple as asking a question. Just ask her to play music, read the news, control your smart home, tell a joke, and more — Alexa is happy to help. It is Alexa’s hardworking utility and witty personality that has led her to be regarded as a member of the family.
Alexa is always getting smarter, with new skills through updates delivered automatically. The more you talk to Alexa, the more she adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences, with new features continually being added. Alexa’s goal is to make your life easier and more fun.
Always refer to Alexa by name.
Alexa utterances are the vocal questions and commands that trigger corresponding Alexa actions and responses. For example, “Alexa, what is the weather?” is an utterance used to get information about the weather.
All product packaging, retail displays, marketing materials, TV, film, media, or live entertainment featuring Echo and/or Alexa interactions must use actual Alexa utterances. Approved Alexa utterances can be found on the All Things Alexa page.
