How do I activate and use the Amazon Alexa feature?

Once you have the latest version of the BOOM 2 or MEGABOOM app and have updated your speaker, opening the app will walk you through how to activate the feature. If you’ve skipped this and are coming back to try the feature, try the steps below.

  1. In the app, go to Settings
  2. Find the Amazon Alexa feature and tap to activate it, you will have to enter your Amazon account information.
    Note: If you’ve previously used Google Assistant, activating the Alexa Voice Service will disable this feature, but you can go back to Google Assitant by signing out of Amazon Alexa.
  3. To use Alexa, just Tap and Ask (short press the Bluetooth button on your speaker) — You can use Alexa to listen to music from Amazon Music, iHeartRadio and TuneIn as well as get web search results such as sports scores, weather, reports, jokes and Flash Briefings.
