Name Changes for Alexa
Changing Alexa’s name is easy and can be done in a few simple steps. First, open the Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet. You should see a menu at the bottom of the screen and select Settings from this menu. On the Settings page, choose Your Alexa Device from the list of options. This will take you to a page that has all your devices connected to the Alexa app and their respective settings. Select Edit after selecting your device, and then scroll down until you find Name. Here, you can enter what you want to call your device and select Save Changes when completed.
Once you have changed your device’s name, it will immediately begin responding whenever its new name is used instead of its old one. Keep in mind that any changes made here will not be reflected in other Amazon services or apps like Prime Music; it only applies to this specific Alexa-enabled device. It’s also worth noting that users who are part of groups with multiple devices may need to go into each individual device’s settings page in order for everyone to recognize their new names properly when speaking commands out loud.
Step 1: Connect to Wi-Fi
Step 1: Connect to Wi-Fi. Before changing Alexa’s name, you must first ensure that your device is connected to a secure Wi-Fi network. To do this, open the Alexa app on your smartphone and select the “Settings” option from the main menu. Tap “Wi-Fi” and then select your desired network from the list of available networks. Enter your password if prompted, then wait for your device to connect to the network successfully. Once you are connected, you can proceed with changing Alexa’s name.
Step 2: Open the Alexa App
Once you have chosen a new name for Alexa, the next step is to open the Alexa app. Open the Alexa app by tapping on it from your home screen or using your phone’s search bar. On the home page of the app, tap on “Settings” which is located at the bottom right of your screen. Here you will be able to choose from a range of settings options and features. From here, select “Device Settings” and then choose your device from the list provided. Once you have located your device, click on “Edit” which can be found next to its name. A new box should appear with two fields for you to enter information into; one labeled as “Name” and one labeled as “Room Name”. Enter in your desired new name into both fields and press save when finished. Your changes should now take effect so that whenever you call out to Alexa using its new name she will respond accordingly!
Step 3: Select Settings
From the Alexa app, select ‘Settings’ from the bottom navigation bar. Here, you can find all of the settings related to your Echo device. Select ‘Device Settings’ and then click on the device in question. From there, pick the option labeled ‘Change Name’. You’ll be prompted to type in a new name for your Echo device. Make sure it’s something you’ll remember and understand easily – this is what Alexa will respond to when you speak her name! Once finished naming your device, hit ‘Save Changes’ at the bottom of the page and you’re done! Your Echo should now respond to its new name whenever it is called out.
Step 4: Choose the Device Name
When it comes to choosing a device name, think of something that’s easy for you to remember. It should be distinct and unique enough so that Alexa can easily differentiate between multiple Echo devices in the same household. You may want to consider using the device’s location in your naming scheme, such as “Kitchen Alexa” or “Bedroom Echo”. If you have multiple rooms with an Echo device, adding a number after the room name is also helpful, i.e., Living Room 1 and Living Room 2. In addition, you can get creative by assigning fun names like “Siri-ous Business” or “Alexa from Another Galaxy” if you prefer something more humorous. Ultimately, it’s up to your own discretion when picking out a name for your device!
Step 5: Enter New Name
Once the desired new name for your Alexa device has been chosen, it will be time to enter it. To do so, launch the Alexa app on your mobile device and then access Settings > Device Settings. Select the specific device you want to rename, and then select Edit Name. Here you can enter the new name of your choosing, making sure to follow any character limit restrictions indicated by the app. Once done, hit Save Changes and that’s it! The new name should be applied immediately and will be used whenever anyone addresses their Alexa device in the future. It is important to note that names cannot contain special characters like punctuation marks or symbols; they must consist solely of letters or numbers only. Additionally, some names may not be allowed due to trademark issues with other companies’ products or services.
Step 6: Save Changes
Once you’ve chosen the name for your device, it’s time to save your changes. To do this, click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page. This will apply all of the modifications that you have just made. When you press Save Changes, your Alexa device will update its settings with its new name and be ready for you to use.
You can also check to make sure that your changes were successfully applied by asking Alexa her name after pressing Save Changes. If everything was successful, she should answer with her new name rather than the default one. Additionally, if you log into your Amazon account on a computer or mobile device and open up your devices list, you should see that all of them are now listed with their updated names as well.
By saving these changes and verifying them afterward, you can rest assured knowing that all of your Alexa devices now have personalized names that match their owners’ preferences!
Conclusion: Enjoy Your New Name!
Once you have chosen your new name for Alexa, it’s time to enjoy! You can start using it right away with simple commands like “Alexa, what is the weather?” or “Alexa, play my favorite song.” With this new name, you can personalize your experience and make Alexa sound more like a friend than just another device.
The name change process was simple and straightforward. If at any point you find that something isn’t quite working as expected or if your settings are lost, use the Alexa app to reset Alexa’s settings so everything is back up and running.
You no longer need to worry about saying “computer” or “Amazon Echo” when addressing Alexa – just speak her newly-assigned name loud and clear! Enjoy conversing with your voice assistant in a way that feels most natural for you.
