Did you know you can snooze your Alexa alarm?

Just say "Alexa, snooze!"

When your Alexa alarm rings, say "Alexa, snooze!" to catch 9 more minutes of zzz's. If you'd like to rest for just 5 more minutes, say "Alexa, snooze for 5 minutes," and she'll wake you up when you want!

Ever wonder why snooze defaults to 9 minutes? Before digital took over, alarm clocks had gears, and the teeth of the snooze gear had to connect with one of the existing gears in the clock -- which meant snooze could be either 9 minutes and a few seconds or a little more than 10 minutes long. Clock engineers chose the 9 minutes option, and it's still the snooze convention today!

Is it really better to use Alexa as your alarm clock? Yes!

Tonight, dock your phone and finally get some distraction-free sleep. Here are some reasons you'll love waking up with an Alexa alarm:

  • Set as many alarms as you need (if you're like me and want one alarm 15 minutes before you need to get up and another to tell you that 15 minutes is up) 
  • Set recurring alarms by saying "Alexa, set a 7am alarm every weekday"
  • Set a music alarm by saying "Alexa, wake me up to Wham! at 6am" (insert song, artist or genre of your choice!) 
  • Trigger an Alexa morning routine when you dismiss your Alexa alarm that turns on the lights, gives you the weather and news, brews coffee and more! Tap/click here to get set-up in seconds.
