We all lost something in the house sometime. It's all too easy to forget where you keep your passport, keys, important tax documents, and so on. However, if you could just ask for your Amazon Echo ($ 1
It's easy. If you put something important in a new, different or unusual place, you can tell Alexa to remember exactly where you placed it. Then just ask Alexa again if you're ready to find it.
This feature is very useful if you are always in a hurry and always leave a gap where you left your wallet, keys, glasses or phone behind. The catch is that you actually have to remember telling Alexa where you put your thing. Thats how it works.
Alexa, remember where I mean …
It's that simple – tell Alexa to remember where you left something you need to find again.
All you have to say is something like "Alexa, remember, I put my birth certificate in the second drawer of my filing cabinet." Your Amazon Echo then confirms what you want to remember. This works for absolutely every article. You can try it with your TV remote, wallet, keys, marriage certificate, phone, etc.
If you're looking for the item you're likely to lose again, just say, "Alexa, where did I put my birth certificate?" Alexa will then repeat exactly where you said your item would be, so you can grab it and get started.
What if you forget to ask Alexa to remember?
Unfortunately, the Amazon Echo can not remember what you do not tell him. But if you especially forget itthat you can attach to your keychain, your wallet, your coffee mug or anything else. And Alexa can also help you find them.
For example, you can use a tracker, such as the Tile Mate ($ 50 for four on Amazon), which is attached to your wallet, backpack, keys, or anything else that you frequently misplace. Once you have the tracker, open your Alexa App> Menu > Skills & Games > Search for Tile ($ 150 at Amazon ) > Tap Enable to use . You must create a tile account to use the skill. When you've done all the settings, you can say "Alexa, ask Tile for my keys" or "Alexa, ask Tile for the location of my wallet".
You can connect the Amazon Echo to other trackers in a similar way. Check out these three.
