Amazon Devices July Round-up: Biggest Prime Day, Alexa Live, and More
Alexa is getting smarter and more complex every single day by finding new ways of applying learned behaviours to new and different scenarios. Currently built into more than 100,000,000 devices worldwide, Alexa and the Echo suite of devices continue to evolve.
Check out the top Amazon devices and Alexa updates you need to know for the month of July 2022:
The Biggest Prime Day Ever
— Amazon Canada (@amazonca)
Audible x Harry Potter
“Alexa, read Harry Potter Book One on Audible.”
Set Up an Alexa Emergency Contact
You can now set up a household emergency contact in the Alexa app, a new feature in Canada. Alexa attempts to call and text your emergency contact when you or someone in your house says, “Alexa, call for help.”
After you set up Alexa Communications, you can assign a contact as an emergency contact in the Alexa App.
Alexa Live, Amazon’s annual conference for developers, took place in July.
Announcements included the new Alexa Watch App for Wear OS from Fossil, the Alexa Shopping Kit for a better shopping experience, and the Alexa Routines Kit.

Making Alexa part of your day is as simple as asking a question.

Have fun with Alexa:
- “Alexa, compliment me.”
- “Alexa, how are you?”
- “Alexa, tell me a fun fact about animals.”
- “Alexa, tell me a fun fact about space.”
