If you have a smart speaker like the Amazon Echo, you may be wondering: Can Alexa repeat announcements? Here are some tips for you to ensure the quality of your announcements:
First, make sure the device is compatible with your voice command. If it is, then Alexa will make a chiming noise through the compatible devices. To play the announcement, simply repeat the command. Alternatively, you can record your announcement and play it again to make sure that it gets heard by all members of the household. For example, if you leave the house during an important meeting, Alexa will let you know by repeating the message.
Similarly, you can use the announcement function to broadcast your message across all of your Alexa-enabled devices. This feature can be used to read a typed message or a voice note. Be sure to check that you don’t accidentally say a swear word or something explicit. If your message is explicit, the announcement will be read across the entire house, so you may want to avoid broadcasting it in the kids’ rooms.
Another way to set up Alexa to repeat announcements is to enable Follow-Up Mode. Follow-Up Mode allows smart speakers to respond to multiple commands at once. When enabled, your Alexa device will respond to your commands after you say “OK”, “thank you,” or “go to sleep” once. Follow-Up Mode is off by default, and you must turn it on by clicking the appropriate icon on your phone.
