Any owners of Alexa find her useful in the kitchen? 

 

Of course the music/comedy albums or podcasts are great at relieving boredom.

 

Timers that can be set without cleaning off your hands -- very helpful . Those are great when coloring your hair also !Smiley Happy 

 

My math skills are less than perfect and she is very helpful when cutting down or expanding a recipe. 

 

I find her to be earning her keep . Of course I forget sometimes to ask starting with her name and then find myself getting angry at an electrical device -- oh-oh--Woman Embarassed

Re: Alexa doing kitchen duty?

Since I have bluetooth speakers, I find my DOT very useful in every room, not just the kitchen.

How does that work, @Mz iMac?  If I pair with a bluetooth speaker and my DOT is in the kitchen and the speaker in the bedroom will the sound come from both or can I have it just come out of the bluetooth speaker in the bedroom?

@okaywitheasypay  I love that when I use up the last of something while cooking or baking that I can tell her to add it to the shopping list.

The sound wil come out of whichever room your BT speaker is in.  Not both.  At least for the DOT 2nd generation.

Thank you so much!  I never thought about doing that so I'm going to give it a try.  I'm new to the DOT.

If you have BT headphones, no need for BT speakers.  This way, you will not disturb other folks in the room.

What a good idea - thank you!  I've been looking for new ways to use the DOT.  What I'm really loving so far are the smart plugs!

@okaywitheasypay, I consider myself pretty up to date electronically but, with all the security issues with these devices, I haven’t gone there yet.  I am hoping they up the bar and solve the security issues.  LM
