Amazon Alexa review
Amazon Alexa is the core application of the immensely popular voice assistant, Alexa. Installing it on your smartphone or tablet, you can unleash the true potential of this advanced AI-powered assistant and benefit from centralized access to your smart home devices, content subscriptions, and many other useful features on the go. Alexa offers you to control an entire ecosystem from your mobile device.
The first thing that you notice in Alexa’s design is versatility. Each screen has an individual color that transforms the entire theme, depending on the features you want to use. For example, the home screen of the app is colored in Amazon’s standard dark blue color, while the groups for your living room, shopping lists, and, say, the music player are green, purple, and light blue accordingly. This design solution makes it very easy to navigate. In addition, the menu offers you to structure the features into groups for faster access. Besides, you can reveal the entire list of options by tapping the menu icon in the top left corner or just by swiping the menu from the left screen border.
Key Functions 10/10
Amazon Alexa lets you connect your smartphone or tablet to the entire set of your smart home devices and gain control over the entire set of features remotely. The list of Alexa-enabled devices is surprisingly large, so you can easily choose the needed items for any purpose.
Alexa is also a convenient media hub that lets you log into several music streaming services, including Amazon Music, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify, and other popular platforms. You can do the same thing with audiobook services. If you have several Alexa devices around your house, you can link them via the app to enable simultaneous playback on all speakers.
The Alexa app makes interactions with your smart home and multiple media subscriptions very simple, which makes it a must-have for owners of Alexa-enabled devices. Centralized access lets you do things faster and manage your day in several taps.
When you’re away from home, Alexa will answer all your questions and offer useful options for saving up time every day. You can use it to create interactive shopping lists, to make direct audio and video calls, and stay connected with your home no matter where you are. The app can see if you’re not home and tell you to switch off the light or close the garage door.
Cross-Platform Use 10/10
This application is available for iOS, Android, and Fire OS 5.0 and newer devices. It means that you can use it on any smartphone and tablet and don’t have to look for devices compatible with a particular operating system.

In addition, it provides fast access to all your favorite audio media platforms, communication, and planning features without the need to switch between different apps all the time.
