Setting up an alarm on your Echo Show device is one of the coolest features it has. It is super convenient to set up an alarm without any hassle. It has a lot of customizable options too.
There are a couple of different ways in which you can set an alarm on your Echo Show device. Let’s delve deeper into all the processes one by one!
Ask Alexa to Do It.
There are several voice commands that Alexa responds to that allow her to directly set an alarm for you. A customized alarm can also be set. A few of them are listed below.
- "Alexa, set an alarm for 6 a.m.” This alarm is a one-time one. It will ring the next morning at 6 a.m. but won’t repeat after that.
- “Alexa, set a repeating alarm for 6 am.” This one will repeat itself every day. You can also specify the days here when Alexa asks for the same, like-on weekdays or Monday, Wednesday, or Friday only.
- “Alexa, set an alarm for 6 am to listen to Coldplay from Spotify.” You can set an alarm specifying the song name, artist name, or genre this way!
- "Alexa, set an alarm for 6 am with (light bulb name).” This command will help you wake up with light from your smart bulb if you have connected the same to Alexa.
