The bathroom is perhaps the last place you would think about placing your Amazon Echo ̵
For example, if you notice that you have little soap or shampoo, you can immediately tell Alexa to order more. You can also play music or podcasts while you prepare your & # 39; in the morning, instead of wasting the battery life of your phone .
The trick is to find the best place to place your Amazon Echo ($ 52 at Amazon) device – not too close to the toilet and not at all near running water. So read on to find out where to place your speaker in your bathroom and all the benefits of Alexa in the bathroom.
Where do you place your echo?
The first step to place Alexa in your bathroom is trying to figure out where to place it. You certainly do not want itbecause of all the bacteria in that area. And you should not place it on the sink or near the shower, because you do not want to risk getting your speaker wet.
So where can you put your Echo device? The best option is to attach it to your wall or ceiling with an adhesive strip or nail (if possible). You must ensure that the cord is within range of a power outlet (or use an extension cord) before connecting. Another option would be to place it on a wall shelf or a sink without a sink.
Note that if you decide to mount it on the wall, it is best to use a smaller speaker such as the Echo Dot.
Ordering items you have little of
Let's face it – you only remember that you need shampoo when you are in the shower. But if you have an ultrasound in your bathroom, you can tell Alexa to order it. First make sure that voice purchases are enabled in the Alexa app (Go to Settings > Account settings > Voice purchases and enable the Purchase by voice switched on).
If you find you have little, just say, "Alexa, I'd like to buy soap." You can also simply ask Alexa to add the items to your shopping list if you plan to go to the store later.
Listen to music and podcasts
You can listen to music on your phone while you are in the shower, but what happens if a song comes up that you don't like? There is a good chance that you will use your wet hand to tap "skip" in the playlist, but that can go wrong.
With an Echo speaker in the bathroom you don't have to worry about that. You can just skip & # 39; Alexa, & # 39; to go to the next song. You can also quickly request a specific song that you want to listen to (as long as you have Prime or another premium music service).
Set timers or reminders
If you have several people in your house who have a bathroom, set timers and reminders to prevent a fight about whose turn it is to use the shower. Give each person the agreed amount of time in the bathroom – say 30 minutes – and when the timer goes off, their bathroom time is over. If you use a reminder, say something like "Alexa, remind Sarah in 30 minutes that her time is up in the bathroom."
Take (digital) notes
Some of the best ideas come to you when you are in the shower. So instead of forgetting them, tell Alexa to remember them. Just say "Alexa, make a note" and the voice assistant asks what you want to note. When you're ready to hear what you've asked Alexa to keep a note of, just say & # 39; Alexa, read my notes & # 39 ;.
