Announcements function is similar to one-way intercom function, which allows all certified Alxa devices in the home or Amazon Echo devices to play a broadcast message. For example, you can use this function to announce, "Dinner is ready, you can come down to eat." Then other devices at home will repeat this information to remind each device user.
Users can use "Alexa, announce that..." "Alexa, tell everyone..." Or "Alexa, broadcast..." Wait for the sentence as the beginning, followed by the content you want to broadcast. After saying and confirming, they are placed on the table.KitchenEcho speakers in other locations, such as bedrooms and living rooms, will broadcast what you say (including voice) to achieve the purpose of broadcasting. This can be used to inform family members about meals, or to send "I love you" to children in your bedroom.
Amazon has officially promised that all third-party Alexa devices tested and certified by the company will be able to access Announcements in the future and will continue to improve it.
