Review

The Amazon Alexa app enables you to set up all Alexa-supported devices, create shopping lists, listen to music and get the latest news updates. What’s more, the more you utilize this application, the more it familiarizes with your voice, personal preferences as well as vocabulary. It is a very handy and convenient app.

Design 3/5

Amazon rolled out a new design for this application to assist users in managing smart home devices across multiple rooms. The new Alexa app has a colorful design that makes it simpler for users to access and configure their Alexa-supported devices.

The redesign can be referred to as a “rollout-in-process.” The reason is that Amazon is releasing a series of app improvements, according to the official website. Amazon introduced Dot, Echo, and Show devices. The application has made a switch from the white or blue text on a black background. It makes excellent use of color as a way of managing specific devices, device categories and every device within one room or group.

Content and Features 4/5

With the Amazon Alexa app, you will get the most out of your device via personalization of feature recommendations. You can discover as well as enable the recommended skills. One other cool feature is that you can continue from where you left directly via the home feed with shopping, lists and even your recently opened books and music.

Easily set up your Alexa-compatible devices and check or control compatible smart lighting, thermostats, and locks either at home or while on the move. What’s more, you can formulate routines that will automate your smart devices at home.

Amazon Alexa allows you to connect to other music services such as Pandora, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, TuneIn and Spotify. Simply select a playlist or song and listen on an Alexa device. With this app, you will also view your to-do lists while on the go.

User Experience 4/5

The personalized recommendations enhance the experience of the app since each user gets to use the app based on their unique tastes. Alexa Skills also help you explore different ideas and increase your pool of knowledge.

The ability to pick up from where you left off provides many conveniences since you do not have to start over a whole new search for recent books, music, shopping, and lists. You can also revise your activity by viewing your Alexa history regarding skill updates, recipes or movie showtimes. You will no longer need a remote control to adjust the volume of devices. The app allows you to control this function from device settings.

Compatibility 4/5

This application requires iOS 9.0 and higher. You can run the app on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. As to Android compatibility, it varies with the device type, so you will have to check the Play Store yourself to see if it works for you.

Conclusion

The coolest feature of this app is, of course, the Amazon Echo. This service allows you to connect with any compatible device and control them with your device. It is extremely easy and straightforward to set up. However, Echo’s, intelligence is cloud-based. Therefore, you will need a snappy internet connection for it to function optimally.
