If you’re considering purchasing an Echo or other smart speaker, you may be wondering if you can use Alexa as a speaker. This virtual voice assistant works well with Bluetooth devices, but you can also use it as a speaker via an aux cord. The advantage of using an AUX cable is that it’s generally cheaper than purchasing a Bluetooth speaker. To use Alexa as a speaker with an aux cord, follow these steps:
To use Amazon Echo as a speaker with an auxiliary cord, you’ll need an AUX plug, a device with an auxiliary output, and a 3.5mm jack. First, you’ll need a gadget with an auxiliary port. Most cars have one. This plug is located on the aux jack. You’ll need to connect the speaker to an audio source, such as a mobile phone or other audio device.
Once you have the AUX cable, you can connect Alexa to your music player. Make sure you have the correct cord, since the device may not be compatible with all AUX cords. If it does not work, you’ll need to buy an AUX cable. However, not all Echo devices can connect via an AUX cord. In this case, you’ll need to purchase a new speaker with an AUX port.
When connecting an Alexa smart speaker to an AUX port, you may need to start the audio manually. Open your audio output device’s Sound Settings, and ensure that the AUX option is checked. Alternatively, you can open the Alexa App on your smartphone and tap on the Devices tab. Lastly, choose ‘Line In’ or ‘AUX Audio’. Then, you’re ready to connect your speaker with an Alexa speaker.
