Alexa Routines now available on FireTV
In addition to this, Amazon is also expanding Alexa Routines by making it available on Fire TV devices in India starting today. Alexa Routines is an Alexa feature designed to make users’ day-to-day lives easier by bundling Alexa and smart home features together.
Using the Alexa app, users can set up Routines selecting actions such as powering their TV on or off, opening a specific app, playing specific content, and pausing or resuming content, in addition to other actions on their Alexa-enabled and smart home devices, such as turning on the light or changing the AC temperature.
For example, customers can create an Alexa Routine so that when someone in their household says, “Alexa, I’m getting a snack,” Alexa will pause their Fire TV content and turn on their smart lights. Customers can also create a Routine so that when someone says “Alexa, I’m back,” Alexa can say “OK – now back to your show,” turn off their smart lights, and resume playing content.
Customers can also create a Routine so that when they say “Alexa, time for bed,” Alexa will turn off their TV and begin dimming their smart lights. As per Amazon, these are just a few examples of Routines which you can currently create while you can create much more.
