How Alexa could be operated with Echo and Amazon tap devices ?

 Amazon built a system that could be easily operated to interact with the screen. Alexa could be accessed or sensed via. microphones built with both echo and dot . Once you command over alexa, that echo or amazon tap products which has been integrated with Alexa via voice recognition pattern  will stream the voice to their cloud service and when you asked to do something , the requests been listened and all those requests will be displayed in the app and the default wake up word is wake alexa and you can change to any name later on. Once you speak over , the command will be assigned to it via. microphone and will be transmitted to amazon's cloud computers for quick analysis. The default voice will be female and the requests making to alexa are very easier.

Just say " What is the temperature in our city ? " or uou can ask alexa to perform a music search or you can ask alexa to turn off the limits or dim it and place a reservation and you can also request for a joke which is very interesting

Setting up the product is very easy. Just plugin the device ad enable voice assistant and connect with the app which is avail for android and IOS and ask for whatever u want to do

As you can see Alexa has its many vantages , it also has its disadvantage is only one command can be received at one time not unless you build a command together like " light and bedroom " . Each command has to be spoken seperately and few other limitations which are notable to its backlogs. Apart from that , its still a pretty decent product from amazon
