What voice commands are available for Alexa, the voice assistant from Amazon? What can you say to Alexa, what can Alexa actually do and do for you? Without provoking her “I don’t understand you” answers…. Below you will find a HUGE list of commands that you can throw at your Amazon Alexa and which she will understand, at least in terms of content. You probably already know the classics like “Alexa, what is the date today?”, “Alexa, what is the weather like in Rome right now?”, “Alexa, what is one hundred minus seventy-seven?” Below are some commands to Alexa for you, which I bet you don’t know (all) yet. Have fun trying them out and living with your Alexa at home or on the go. You might also be interested in other articles of the topics at home or lifestyle in general.

Where these Amazon Alexa voice commands are valid

The following commands are of course only valid for the Amazon Alexa voice assistant. With Siri (from Apple / on the iPhone) or via the Google Assistant, you won’t get very far with these “Hey, Alexa” voice commands, of course. But anyone can have and use an Alexa without an Echo end device!
Simply install the Amazon Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet and you can use Alexa that way. Everywhere and independent of location. And, via the app of the largest retailer in the world, you can also create routines and operate linked smart home devices such as lamps or power switches.
