What are your favourite features of Alexa?
My favourite feature of Alexa is listening to music because of its ease of control and audio quality of my Echo smart speaker. Alexa reminders and music alarms keep me on track throughout the day. I have also started to enjoy cooking now as Alexa guides me to make my favourite meals, step by step.

Alexa has something for everyone, be it kids or elders. I recommend using Alexa for music as it is extremely convenient, and it provides a wide range of music options.

From my personal experience, it helps my mother a lot and I can vouch for it.
