Alexa Commands You Can Use Every Day

We know all about your new best friend, personal assistant, and partner in crime. We’ve all seen her in heartwarming commercials and viral tweets. We have to admit, we love her too! If you’ve brought Alexa into your home, here are the coolest and most useful skills and commands to use every day!

Read a Book

Any former bookworms who no longer have the time to read will love this skill. Hardly anyone has the time to sit down after work or school and read a book. Say “Alexa, read me my Kindle book,” and Alexa will read your book aloud while you cook or clean around the house.

Order fast food

Order food from your favorite places including Domino’s and Amazon’s Restaurants. Perfect for the days you don’t feel like cooking, “Alexa, order a Large Cheese Pizza.”

Meal Ideas

If you’re stuck in a rut, try out this Alexa skill to help with dinner. We all get tired of eating the same 4 or 5 meals every week. For the days you do feel like cooking, turn to Alexa for some assistance and say “Alexa, open meal idea.”

Recipes

Say goodbye to cookbooks and trying to read the small print of a recipe on your phone. Alexa will read recipes out loud to you while you cook when you say “Alexa, read the spaghetti and meatball recipe.”

Wine Pairings

Gone are the days of pairing that Chardonnay you found on sale with whatever food you have left in the pantry at the end of the week. Invite some guests over and say, “Alexa, which wine goes best with steak?” Hello, wine connoisseur.

Call a Ride

Calling all frequent Uber passengers! This is the perfect command for you. Say, “Alexa, call me an Uber,” and your location is made available. You don’t even have to take out your phone. Wow, as if Uber wasn’t simple enough.

Online Orders

Stop forgetting about the mental notes you make in the moment to reorder staple supplies. If you’re anything like me, the past 4 mornings you’ve disgruntledly sighed because you’re out of mascara and paper towels and keep forgetting to run to the store. Seek Alexa’s help… “Alexa, order mascara and paper towels from Prime.”

Temperature control

Have you ever been cooking, sleeping, or sitting and suddenly it’s way too hot in the house? Never walk to your thermostat again and simply change the temperature by saying “Alexa, set the temperature to 70.” Pair Alexa to your smart home technology and control your temperature hands-free—from your bed, kitchen, etc.
