How to Setup Alexa : Amazon Inc. Personal Assistant

Ladies and Gentlemen attention please ! अगर आपको कोई व्यक्ति सिलेंडर के आकार के स्पीकर से बात करता नजर आता है तो यह मत समझिएगा कि उसका दिमाग सटक गया है। मुमकिन है कि वह अलेग्जा से बात कर रहा हो। अलेग्जा यानी एक इंटेलिजेंस पर्सनल असिस्टेंट, जिसे अमेजन कंपनी ने बनाया है। इसे सबसे पहले अमेजन ईको ( एक तरह का स्मार्ट स्पीकर ) में इस्तेमाल किया गया था।

Setting Up Your Echo

To help minimize Alexa belting out instructions at you, the first step (before you even unpack and plug the Echo in) is to grab the Amazon Alexa app for your phone or tablet. Once you have the app downloaded, hold off on launching it right now.
Plug in your Amazon Echo. The indicator ring around the top will flash blue then switch to a rotating orange color (as shown above). This indicates it’s ready to be configured. If you miss this window and it starts complaining (and the ring turns purple), hold down the action button (the button opposite the mute button) for about five seconds until the ring turns orange again.
Once the Echo is fully powered up and in the orange configuration mode, pull out your smarpthone and open up the Wi-Fi settings. Like many smarthome products, the Echo requires you to connect directly to it during the configuration process in order to set it up.
As shown above, select the Echo’s Wi-Fi connection, which will be something like “Amazon-53N” or some other number and letter combo, and connect to it.
Then, you can launch the Alexa app to begin the setup and you should see this screen:
Select which type of Echo you’re setting up. The app should jump right into the configuration process, but if it doesn’t, just tap on the menu icon (the three bars in the top-left corner of the app) and select Settings. From there, you can select one of two things: if you personally purchased the Echo on your Amazon account, then it should say “[Your Name]’s Echo” and you can select that. If you got an Echo as a gift or otherwise didn’t personally purchase it, you can select “Set up new device”.
Once you’re at the point where you’re connected to the Echo with the app up and running, the rest is pretty easy. Simply input your Amazon account login credentials, agree to the Alexa user conditions (e.g. that you’re OK with your voice being sent to Amazon to be analyzed for commands and service improvements), and then select your Wi-Fi network from the list of networks the Echo can detect.
Once you’ve connected your Echo to your home’s Wi-Fi network, you’re ready to start using it. Let’s take a look at how to talk to Alexa and then how to customize your Echo experience.
