Amazon launches Alexa Print, a way to print lists, recipes, games and educational content
Amazon announced a new Alexa-enabled printing feature that lets Echo device owners use voice commands to print out common items, like their Alexa to-do lists, recipes, weekly calendars, educational content for kids and even some games, like Sudoku or crossword puzzles, mazes and more.
The feature works with any second generation Echo device or newer and a number of IPP-enabled compatible printers from brands like HP, Brother, Canon and Epson. (You can check if your printer works with the feature by saying “Alexa, discover my printer.”) Amazon says it will expand to more printers over time.
Some of the printable content comes from Alexa itself, like your to-do list or shopping list, for example — things that people still often want to have jotted down on a piece of paper.
