What is Alexa?

If you're new to Alexa speakers, here's a quick recap.

Alexa is an "intelligent" personal assistant built by Amazon.

You can find her on several different devices, including Amazon's Echo speakers.

Alexa responds to voice commands, and can talk back to you.

She can perform thousands of different tasks, including telling you about the news or weather.

But she can do more complex things too, like ordering a pizza or arranging an Uber taxi pick-up.

To activate Alexa, you need to say "Alexa" to an Amazon Echo speaker.

Alexa currently only works in English and German languages.

Because she's powered by artificial intelligence, Alexa is constantly getting smarter.

Alexa will also get more used to your voice, and better understand what you want her to do over time.
