As a bonus, the system is accessible with Alexa, so customers can optimize it using devices like the Echo, Echo Show, and Fire TV.

Amazon is bringing one of Google Home's popular features to its Echo speakers. From there, users can broadcast any message they want through an army of Echo speakers, but, as mentioned earlier, only those in the United States or Canada will enjoy this functionality for now.

Which is the Alexa Skill you find most useful?

Amazon has announced it's adding a new feature that lets users broadcast voice messages across all Echos in a household using Alexa. Unlike Groups, which just controls multiple bulbs, plugs and other devices in one go, Routines offers much finer control.

Which Echo devices support the feature? Users simply say the trigger words "Alexa, Open UKMortgages" and Alexa takes it from there.

Alexa Announcements began rolling out in the USA and Canada this Thursday, so if you can't get the feature to work quite yet, just be patient.

It was not immediately clear at press time whether the announcements would also come out of Alexa-enabled devices like Amazon Fire tablets, but it's likely that only smart speakers will work with the feature. Instead of reading your message in her own voice, Alexa will make a chiming noise through every Echo in your house, then repeat an audio recording of what you said. Amazon Key has also been updated with a new Entry and Exit Clips feature: With this feature, customers have the option to view motion video clips of a person entering or leaving when the door is locked or unlocked.
