Does Alexa hear you say thank you?
Say “please” and “thank you” – This might seem like a minor suggestion, but being polite when you ask Alexa to do something can make a big difference in your interactions with her. No, Alexa won’t do a better job of controlling your music or switching on the lights if you say “please,” but I’ve found that it makes chatting with her feel more like I’m speaking to a person rather than a fabric-covered hockey puck.

How do you set a timed announcement on Alexa?
Customer Experience Guidance – To notify your customers that your device implements Announcements, include messaging in your product updates/announcements to communicate this feature. Amazon recommends using the following wording: Alexa Announcements enables customers to broadcast a message to all of the other supported Alexa Built-in devices in your household account. Announcements are great for quick, broad communications you want to share with your whole family. For example, say “Alexa, announce that dinner’s ready” to your Alexa Built-in device and “Dinner’s ready” will play in your voice on your other supported devices. Customers can also say, “Alexa, tell everyone” and “Alexa, broadcast” to make an announcement. Manage Announcements in the Alexa mobile app. Go to Settings > Device Settings > device_name >Communications > Announcements to configure settings for each Alexa device in your household.

1. Name your Alexa timers – So, you need to cook some rice for 10 minutes while roasting green beans in the oven for 15 minutes, and you want Alexa to do the timing for you. How do you keep those two timers straight? Easy: just name your timers. For example, you can say, “Alexa, set a rice timer for 10 minutes,” and then, “Set a veggies timer for 15 minutes.” When the timers are done, Alexa’s alarm tone will sound, and she’ll say “Your rice timer is done,” followed (in five minutes) by “Your veggies timer is done.” Once you name a timer, Alexa will remember it, meaning you can just say “Alexa, set a rice timer” and she’ll set it (using the above example) for 10 minutes without being told.
