Amazon Alexa



Focals come with Alexa built-in. To start using Alexa, all you need is to sign in with an Amazon account through the Focals app. Press and hold the button on Loop and move up to wake Alexa.

Alexa processes two requests and displays timers and a shopping list.

You can ask Alexa anything, but here are some things to try:

  • Ask for a joke
  • Search for businesses and restaurants nearby
  • Set an alarm, reminder, or timer
  • Ask for a translation or start a language lesson
  • Create a to-do or shopping list
  • Ask for a Flash Briefing or Sports Update

Tip

Most Alexa skills work with Focals. You can learn more about skills and personalize things like Flash Briefings and Sports Updates with the Alexa app.
