Alexa Voice Commands Everything Everyone Should Know

Amazon Alexa can be used to accomplish many tasks. These tasks can only be accomplished if you know the correct Alexa commands. There are hundreds of commands that you can use with your Alexa device. These are the most common commands you should know.

  1. Alexa, Stop

This command will tell Alexa to stop performing a task you have asked it to do. Alexa will cease performing any task it is currently doing. This is useful if you aren’t sure what you want Alexa to do.

  1. Alexa, Volume X

The volume command is what you will need to turn on your Alexa devices for the first time. You can adjust the volume levels on your Alexa device by using this command. You can also adjust the volume by saying “Alexa turn up the volume” and “Alexa turn down the volume”.

Alexa has a hidden level 11, which you can use in order to increase Alexa’s volume above This is Spinal Tap levels. This level is probably not the best for most users.

  1. Alexa, set an alarm for 9 A.M

This Alexa command will automatically set up alarms for you. You don’t have to use your phone’s apps anymore. Simply say the command loudly and Alexa will set up an alarm at the time specified.

  1. Alexa, set a timer for 10 minutes

Timers are essential for many tasks. The virtual assistant will set up a timer for you by simply telling it the time. Alexa will notify you when the time has expired.

  1.  Alexa, Tell Me a Joke

This command tells you a joke. It is the last of our list of Alexa commands. This command can be used to get Alexa telling you a random, funny joke. You might get a localized version depending on what you prefer. You can also ask Alexa for a knock-knock joke by saying “Alexa. knock knock.” Find out who is there.

These Are the Best Alexa Commands to Learn

Alexa is a powerful virtual assistant that can do almost everything you ask. To do this, however, you need to be able to learn the commands that will trigger Alexa to complete your tasks. Additional skills are available to enhance Alexa’s already-built-in commands. Many of these skills are free.
