#1. You'll never need to go room-to-room to let everyone know that dinner's ready
Instead, just say "Alexa, announce that dinner is ready" to broadcast the message over all the Echo devices across your home.
#2. Use an announcement next time you're trying to reach someone at home but they're not picking up
You can easily broadcast Alexa announcements across your home's Alexa speakers via the Alexa app on your phone too! Just open the Alexa app > tap "Communicate" on the bottom navigation bar > tap "Announce" > tap the microphone icon and say your message (such as "I'm calling, pick up!") > tap the arrow button to broadcast it.
#3. Add announcements to Alexa routines to help keep a busy household on schedule
Trying to keep multiple kids on schedule? Set up Alexa routines that run at the same time each week and announce things like "Susie, time to get ready for soccer practice, we're leaving in 15 minutes!" every Sunday before practice or "Johnny, don't forget to practice violin before tomorrow's lesson!"
