How to Change the Wake Word for Amazon's Voice Assistant - Alexa

Have you ever wondered if you could change the wake word for your Alexa-enabled device? 

Perhaps you're tired of hearing "Alexa" all the time?

While "Alexa" is a popular wake word, some users may prefer to use a different name or word that's easier to pronounce or remember. 

Additionally, if you have multiple Alexa-enabled devices in your home, using the same wake word for all of them can cause confusion and trigger unintended responses. 

How to change the wake word for your Alexa-enabled device, follow these steps:

  • Open the Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet.
  • Tap on the menu icon
  • Select Settings from the drop-down menu.
  • Scroll down and select Device Settings.
  • Choose the device you want to change the wake word for.
  • Select the Device settings icon
  • Tap on Wake Word.

  • Select the new wake word you want to use from the list of options (Amazon offers "Alexa”, “Amazon”, Computer”, “ Echo," and "Ziggy" as wake word options).
  • Confirm the new wake word by saying it out loud when prompted by the app.

And that's it! 

Your device will now respond to the new wake word you've chosen.
