How do Alexa Announcements work?
Compatible Echo devices include just about everything, though the Echo Tap is now not supported.
Amazon keeps adding new skills to its virtual assistant Alexa to make the user experience more seamless. So, as with the Echo Show and Echo Spot, you can have it pull up a feed from one of your smart home security cameras. Just speak to any one of your Echo devices and say: "Alexa, announce that..." and read out your message.
Alexa Announcements began rolling out in the United States and Canada this Thursday, so if you can't get the feature to work quite yet, just be patient.
The hands-free update is being rolled out to 2017 versions of the tablets via a software update, and will bring the company's tablet range closer in line with its Echo smart speakers, the flagship Alexa products.
In order to use the feature, just say something like "Alexa, announce that it's lunch time", and every Echo in the house will repeat the message. In addition to the coverage expansion, Amazon Key is also expanding its roster of supported smart locks, adding five new ones from Kwikset and Yale for a total of eight.
