Welcome back !

In Part 2 of this detailed guide we have shared everything you need to have your Echo Dot working perfectly. We have left also a “Vocabulary” list of commands  to communicate with Alexa.

We will cover Skills for Alexa someday but today we will look at some routine tasks you can configure to get Alexa do much of the work more efficiently.
