Great news for all you poor souls out there named Alexa!
There's a way to change your Amazon device so she no longer wakes up and responds to her original name.
Now while you can't choose a totally original new name for your device you can change it to respond to “Amazon,” “Echo,” or “Computer.”
- Open the Alexa app on your phone.
- Tap the home page button on the bottom-left. It looks like three rectangles stacked together.
- Select the menu button on the top-left of the page.
- Choose settings.
- Pick “Device Settings.”
- Choose the Echo that you want to modify.
- Tap “Wake Word.”
