Now there is a cool way to announce to your family that dinner is ready. When you use this command “Alexa, announce that dinner is ready” an announcement will go out to all the Echo devices in the house. It will do an announcement warning, then ring the dinner bell, and then repeat whatever you said after “Alexa, announce that…”

That is how we gather all the gang in for dinner now and it is great. I must admit I laughed out loud several times when we have used it but now it is a great tool instead of having to travel around the house shouting dinner is ready.

There are also several other options that will play different sound effects such as “Alexa, announce time to go to sleep”, “Alexa, announce time to wake up”

What great fun!!
