Amazon Alexa review
Amazon Alexa is an application that allows setting up and applying Alexa-enabled devices. The range of features is quite extended. You can benefit from its functionality and make your daily routine even at a distance. You can navigate the app manually or issue commands in a steady voice so that the app could understand them and perform the tasks.
Design and Usability, 5/5
The app is well-designed with a simple interface and an uncluttered layout. You can do without pressing buttons using it hands-free. Just launch the app, see it on the screen of your device and pronounce your command or ask a question. The mobile device may even be kept in your pocket, and still, the app will listen to you and complete your tasks. First, after installation, you should grant the required permissions so that the app could get access to your camera, microphone, and other resources needed to complete the task. Every time you need it again, just tap the Alexa icon and say your request. To cancel your command, tap a blue circle with X in it.
