If you and your family members want to watch a movie and decide where to eat, you can all look together instead of pushing for a phone. All you have to do is talk to Alexa on her Fire TV.
To do this:
- Hold down the microphone button on your Alexa Voice remote.
- Say something like "Alexa, show me sushi restaurants nearby."
- Alexa shows you some nearby restaurants with Yelp reviews
- Use the remote to select one to display the address, hours, and distance from you.
These are some of my favorite tips that I'm not sure they all know. You can ask Alexa for tips, no matter which app you're in, by holding down the microphone button on your remote and saying, "Alexa, what can I say?"
