Ịtụ a takeaway

Nkà ekwe ka ahụ kwuo ihe na-interface na real-ụwa ọrụ, na ọ dịghị nweta ọtụtụ karịa n'ezie karịa JustEat. Ozugbo ị wụnye na nkà (na-jikọrọ ya na gị na Dị nnọọ Rie akaụntụ), i nwere ike ịtụ nri abalị enweghị na-ebuli a mkpịsị aka.

As with Amazon voice purchasing, there’s nothing to prevent the service from being abused by inquisitive children, but perhaps that won’t be a big problem for the single men it’s evidently aimed at.

Work up a sweat

After you’ve devoured a few takeaways, you may need a spot of exercise. Alexa can help here too: one of the most popular features is the seven-minute workout, in which Alexa guides you through a short programme of timed exercises, including jumping jacks, press-ups and wall sits. If you’re not sure how an exercise should be done, you can see a graphical tutorial within the Alexa app. There’s no musical accompaniment – just a ticking timer sound – but you can start your own playlist and hear it quietly in the background. In future, the developers plan to extend the feature so you can track your performance and get access to a wider range of exercises.

Enjoy games and Easter eggs

In the skills library, under games, trivia & accessories, you’ll find dozens of games you can play with Alexa, including interactive quizzes, bingo, and even blackjack. Alexa can roll virtual dice for you too – with any number of sides – and she plays a mean game of rock, akwụkwọ, scissors. If that’s too simple for you, she can also play the more sophisticated “rock, akwụkwọ, scissors, lizard, Spock” variant. If you’re looking for more cerebral stimulation, try asking some philosophical questions, such as whether Santa Claus exists or who let the dogs out. Alexa has a lot of smart responses, and she’s well versed in films, books and TV shows.

Expand and accessories

The Echo receives regular software upgrades: to find out about new features, go to things to try>what’s new? in the Alexa app. It’s also worth keeping an eye on the skills library, as new capabilities are being added all the time. And if you want to expand your coverage into other rooms of your house, consider investing in the Echo Dot – a miniature version of the Echo costing £50 – or £250 for a pack of six. It has the same capabilities as the full-sized Echo, just with a smaller speaker – and if you like, you can connect an external speaker with a cable or over Bluetooth.
