Got a new Echo speaker for yourself? Want to know how to download Alexa app and set up your Echo to make it ready for use?
Here, you will get to know the step-by-step process for setting up your Echo device for the first time.
5 Simple Steps for Trouble-Free Set up
Following are the steps that you need to follow to configure an Echo speaker successfully:
- Switch On Your Echo Speaker
Look for the power adapter that you have received with the package. As you might know that Echo speakers don’t have built-in batteries, you need to switch on your Echo by plugging its power adapter to a socket. You’ll see the LED ring flashing blue light that indicates the Echo has been connected to a power supply.
- Download Alexa app on Your Smartphone
For this step, you’ll need a smartphone. What you need to do here is to open the Play Store (if you are an Android user), or App Store (if you are an iOS user) and search for the Amazon Alexa app. Download and install the Alexa app and then open it to continue to the next step.
- Add Your Echo Speaker
Within the app interface, you need to spot the add device option in the main menu and open it. The app will guide you through a series of instructions to add and register your Echo device with your Amazon account.
- Establish Connection with a Wi-Fi Network
The Alexa app will also assist you in connecting your Echo speaker with the Wi-Fi network in your house. Note that to interact with Alexa personal assistant, you need to connect your Echo speaker with a Wi-Fi network having an active internet connection. You also need to save the Wi-Fi network so that your Echo speaker connects to it automatically in the future.
- Alexa is all set to Take Your Voice Commands
Alexa is now ready to take voice commands from you. You first need to say the wake word, which is Alexa by default following the voice command. For instance, if you need to have a conversation with Alexa, all you need to say is, “Alexa, let’s chat”.
It’s super easy to set up an Echo speaker by following the steps mentioned above. Just keep in mind that you need to download Alexa app on your smartphone to configure your Echo device in no time.
