Make Alexa Announcements

You can ask Alexa to make announcements on compatible Alexa enabled devices, like a one-way intercom.

Before you begin

  • Set up one or more compatible Alexa enabled devices, or install the Alexa app on a compatible mobile device.

    Note: Mobile devices with the Alexa app can send but not receive announcements.

To make an announcement, say, "Announce [your message]." A short chime plays on the other compatible devices and the announcement plays in the announcer’s voice.

You can also send an announcement from the Alexa app:

  1. Select the CommunicationCommunication 
  2. Select the AnnounceAnnounce 
  3. Type your message. You can also select the microphone icon to record a message.
  4. Select the arrow icon to send the announcement.

  • To manage announcements for a device, go to the Alexa app and toggle Announcements in the Communication settings for that device.
  • If Do Not Disturb is enabled on a device, the device can send but not receive announcements.
