You can now print your to-do list or recipe using your voice and a compatible Echo device. Amazon has unveiled a new feature called Alexa Print that allows you to print documents using a supported printer.
To get started, you can simply say “Alexa, discover my printer” and then your printer will connect to Alexa. Keep in mind that both your Alexa device and printer must be connected to the same wireless network. If you don't want your printer to connect with Alexa, you can go to your Alexa app and remove the printer.
You can print documents including shopping and to-do lists, Sudoku, graph paper, lined paper, and test pages. The feature is compatible with a number of printer brands including HP, Brother, Canon, and Epson.
And if your ink level is running low, Alexa will notify you through voice or email about the situation. In addition, there's an option to enable Alexa to automatically reorder ink. If you order ink or toner from Amazon, you can get a 10% discount. You can also choose what printer you want to set up smart reorders with by opening the Alexa app and tapping “Devices” on the bottom-right corner. On the other hand, you can disable the smart reorder feature if you like.
