Amazon is constantly adding new tricks for an improved shopping experience, and this latest one involved the Amazon Echo. For those who don’t know, the Amazon Echo is a voice-controlled personal assistant.
So what did Amazon add? All you have to do is ask, “Alexa, where’s my stuff?” (or plainly say, “Track my package.”) and the Echo will respond with the status of your current orders.
This works because the Echo is tied to your Amazon account, so it always has up-to-date information. If you’re taking advantage of Amazon Prime, you can now order items and check the status of packages with just your voice.
And all of this is in addition to the extra benefits you get with Prime, like the amazing TV shows and movies that you can stream.
The Echo is truly useful. We’ve explored all kinds of creative ways to use the Echo to your benefit, including the ability to voice-control aspects of your home. It even makes for a great gift for friends and family.
