Alexa Voice Commands

Launched in the Summer of 2015, the Amazon Echo has taken the world by storm. Powered by Alexa, who is very similar to Siri or Google Now, this smart home assistant can offer up all sorts of answers through a wide range of Alexa voice commands.

The Echo was so popular in fact that Amazon later rolled out the Echo Dot, a miniaturized version costing nearly a quarter of the price. From listening to music to doing some quick math, there’s a lot that Alexa can help you with totally hands-free.

Here’s a list of 50 fun Alexa voice commands that you can try out right now on your Echo or Echo Dot.
