Optimize your Alexa Experience on your Brilliant
Alexa has a feature for creating groups across your devices. We have recommended steps below to help improve your Alexa experience in your Brilliant home:
- Open your Mobile Phone and open your Alexa app
- Tap on the right-most tap, called "Devices"
- On the top right, tap the "+" icon.
- Select "Add Group"
- Enter in your preferred name for the group, and then tap next.
- On the next screen, define your group by selecting all of your Alexa-Enabled Devices that you would like to control.
- You will be taken back to the main Devices screen in your Alexa App. Tap on the group you just created.
- Select the Preferred Speaker for this group (ex. a Sonos in your home)
- Now, if you had set up your Living Room, you can simply say a phrase like "Play Kanye West in my Living Room" OR "Turn on my lights in my Living Room" on your Brilliant!
