The first Apple TV to work with Alexa: What you need to know about the new streaming-TV product
Posted On June 17, 2021
When the new Apple TV was announced, many assumed it would make its debut with a voice-controlled remote.
But that hasn’t happened, and Amazon has instead made a big effort to make Alexa a much more powerful tool for home entertainment.
The Amazon Echo is the company’s first streaming-device to use the Alexa skill set, allowing Alexa to control any device in your home, from your television to your coffee maker to your stereo to your car.
But the company has a big problem when it comes to making Alexa an integral part of its home entertainment ecosystem.
The problem, as it’s known, is that Alexa isn’t a good conversationalist.
As we’ve seen with Google Now, Alexa can get confused about what you want to say, and sometimes can’t figure out the meaning of your commands.
And this is something that can happen in real life.
For example, Alexa’s commands to set a timer for a certain time are often a little hard to understand.
And for most of us, it can be hard to remember exactly what Alexa is asking for.
In the case of the Apple TV, though, Alexa has a lot of power in the Home Assistant section of the device.
You can set your TV to automatically adjust your volume for you when you’re watching content that you’ve previously requested, or turn it off altogether to save energy.
But it can also take advantage of Apple TV’s built-in Siri feature to help you do things like dial your phone, set alarms, set timers, and more.
But these are all things that Alexa will do automatically.
And Amazon’s solution isn’t much different from what Google Now did before it.
It’s a pretty simple system.
First, you’ll need an Amazon Echo.
Alexa is built into the Home app, so it will work with the Home screen on the Apple tv.
Next, you will need an Alexa Skill Card, which is an Amazon Alexa Skill that you’ll be able to get once you have an Amazon device.
For the first time, Amazon has also introduced a new Alexa Skill for the Apple remote, which will also work with your Echo.
This skill card will be a little more complicated than what you’d normally need, though.
First you’ll want to create a custom Skill Card.
This is going to be a one-time thing.
You’ll want this skill card to be something like this: This is the Amazon Alexa skill card.
If you look at the skill card for your Echo, you can see that it’s using a single word.
For instance, when you ask Alexa to tell you to turn the volume up, it says “Alexa, turn up volume.”
When you ask it to tell the temperature of your thermostat, it will say “Alexai, set temperature.”
Then, you need two other words that Alexa can use.
The first word is the desired word.
Alexa will use the word to tell what the Echo is supposed to do.
You need to type that word into the Skill Card box in the bottom right corner.
For this, you want it to be one word long, like “Alex, set volume.”
The second word is what Alexa will say when you press the Home button to say “start playback.”
This is a little bit different than the default phrase for the Home Button.
If it’s a word like “Play,” you can press the button to start the movie, or if it’s “Stop,” you have to type a short phrase.
If Alexa says, “Play Now,” you’ll say “Play” in response to the Home action.
The second part of the Skill card is what you need for when you want Alexa to talk to the device in order to play a particular video.
You want the word “Play.”
When Alexa says “Play, the Amazon Echo,” you’re saying, “Alexaa, play Amazon.”
So, let’s say you want your Amazon Echo to play the first song from a movie you’ve recorded with Amazon.
You just type “Alexaaa, play my video.”
You don’t need to make it a full sentence, or use any extra words to get Alexa to say what it’s supposed to say.
All you need is one word, and Alexa will start playing.
If, for example, you have a song you want the Echo to start playing, and you’ve made the SkillCard to say something like “start playing,” you will then say “Start Playing.”
If you have another Amazon Echo device, Alexa will ask for the name of the video.
So, for instance, you might say, “Hey, Alexa, start playing My Little Pony.”
And Alexa will respond, “That’s a good title, my little pony is My Little pony, and the first three words of it are the title.
So now that you have my little song, you should start playing it.”
So the best thing you can do with your Alexa Skill card right now is make sure
