How to Use Alexa As a Speaker for PC With Bluetooth
In order to set up your PC to connect to an Amazon Echo, you need to download an app called Alexa, which is available for tablets, mobile phones and web. Once you download the app, simply search for “Alexa” and click it. You will then see a list of Bluetooth devices and their models. Find the device that you’d like to connect with Alexa, and click on the Add button.
If your PC doesn’t have built-in Bluetooth, you can use your Echo as a speaker instead. The sound quality will be better and you’ll be saving electricity by not needing to purchase a separate speaker. Using Alexa as a speaker will keep you from losing the voice commands that you have come to rely on. However, keep in mind that you won’t be able to use Alexa as a PC speaker without a Bluetooth connection.
To connect the device to your PC, you’ll need to enable Bluetooth on your phone. If you don’t have Bluetooth enabled on your phone, you’ll need to enable it on your PC. You should see an orange light in your phone’s notification bar. Once you’ve done that, tap “Pair” to connect your speaker to the PC. When the pair process is complete, you’ll be able to control music through your phone.
Now that your PC is connected to the internet, it’s time to set up Alexa. To do this, you need to download the Alexa app for Windows. You will need an account with Amazon or create a new one. Accept the terms and conditions to connect to Alexa and continue using the service. You can change the settings of your device later on if you need to.
