Did you know that you can change the “wake word” for Amazon Echo?
The Echo device defaults to the wake word Alexa but for someone with speech impairment, pronouncing “Alexa” may not be easy. Fortunately, Amazon Echo gives three more options that can be used as wake words – “Amazon”, “Echo”, and “Computer”. This can be done by either going to the Echo website at www.echo.amazon.com or the Alexa phone app, going to Settings, choosing the Echo device you want to change the wake word for (in case you have more than one), and then going to the Wake Word option. Here, you can change it to your desired word and then save. After saving, your Echo device will start responding to the new wake word.
The following video shows how Amazon Echo works after changing the wake word.
