The Amazon Echo is a brilliant present: if someone already has one, they’ll never say no to a second. Or a third. Or a fourth. And if it’s their first one, then there are hours of pleasure from making Alexa say things back to you. Here, we bring you the funniest things to say to Alexa.
Before I get into the full list, you should first master Simon Says. So, say “Alexa, Simon says ‘your statement’” and then it will repeat what you said (as in, whatever you said instead of ‘your statement’).
Hours of fun.
