Voice control with Alexa has actually always been a pretty reliable story. Apart from the fact that you can only pair a bridge with the Alexa Skill, of course, but that is hopefully something that will take care of itself with the upcoming Matter update. However, it is not yet time and in the social networks and also here in the comments I have been reading more and more complaints around the topic of Alexa and Philips Hue for about a week.
“Alexa, turn the kitchen light on”, “Alexa, turn the reading light to 50 percent” or “Alexa, turn all the lights off”. These are just three of the many voice commands that can be used to control your Philips Hue lamps with Amazon's voice assistant Alexa. This week, Amazon has launched two new smart speakers, whose names you have certainly heard before: Echo and Echo Dot.
