The Echo is a device that uses speech recognition to perform an ever-growing range of tasks on command. Amazon calls the built-in brains of this device "Alexa". Her real smarts are on the internet, in the cloud-computing service run by Amazon.
EXP customers can use an Amazon Echo to execute Alexa voice commands to interact with and control their EXP devices (MG1,MG2,Mi3,Qi3). For instance, an Amazon Echo using Alexa voice commands can be used to pause, fast forward, rewind, change channels, open the guide, launch apps and so on.
Some examples include:
Subscribers must activate the Alexa feature on both their EXP device and within the Alexa app. Alexa can be used to control each EXP device on the account. Each device must be activated separately.
No, Amazon Echo devices can be purchased at retailers or directly through Amazon.
