To avoid the hassle of dealing with your annoying computer assistant, you can change the name of your Amazon Echo device. You can make Alexa respond to your voice instead of “Alexa”. Just type “OK computer” to wake up your device and you’ll no longer have to worry about the annoying computer assistant asking you questions. If you have other Echo devices, you can also change the name of each of them. But make sure you do it the right way.
Before you change your Alexa’s name, you need to know what it is called. You can either use a nickname, a title, or a pet name to make it unique and personalized. You can even set your Alexa to answer your questions as if she were a human. This feature is especially useful if you have a pet that you want to call Alexa. However, you need to be patient as Alexa might make you wait a couple of minutes for it to process.
The rebranding of Alexa has come at a time when the technology is being used to target teens and adults. Thousands of people have already named their children Alexa in 2015, before AI became a household name. Since then, however, the number has declined to thousands, with only a few thousand people using the voice assistant on a daily basis. Despite this low number, the trend seems to be growing.
