You have not started your holiday shopping yet? Do not panic Ask Alexa for help instead.
Amazon's language assistant has many ways to relieve your giftedness. Alexa can manage shopping lists, search items for sale and place orders. It can even track your parcels as they are shipped.
Gift Ideas for Research
There is no doubt that the Amazon database is huge for products and vendors. Let Alexa go over the extensive inventory of the online retailer for you. You can save time that would otherwise be wasted on browsing countless websites for retailers. In addition, the search for Alexa could also awaken new gift ideas.
Begin to ask Alexa something simple for mom like "Alexa, Shop for Women's Scarves". Maybe Dad would appreciate a pair of waterproof boots. What about stockings for the kids?
Regardless of what you buy, Alexa will compile a list of articles that match your request. This process is especially useful if you are using one of the Amazon displays.
In the Echo Show ($ 230 on Amazon) or Echo Dot ($ 30 on Amazon) Alexa draws up a list of products in a matter of seconds. The language assistant then describes the first products. You can buy items immediately or view them later in the Alexa Mobile app.
Creating a Shopping List
When browsing Amazon products with your echo, you can track promising gift items with a grocery list. Say "Alexa, add this to my shopping list". This will add the product you are viewing to the list associated with your Amazon account.
If you have not started looking for gifts yet but want to keep an eye on your ideas, create a custom list with Alexa. To begin with, say "Alexa, create a gift list" and then add something like "add golf clubs for my dad to my gift list."
Track Your Packages
Since Amazon is Amazon Alexa can track the purchases you made at the massive online retailer.
Say "Alexa, where is my parcel?" "Alexa, follow my package" or just "Alexa, where are my things?" You will receive the current shipping status of your order. In addition, you can receive shipping notifications for all your orders. Go to the Alexa app Settings> Notifications> Shipping Notifications .
