    • Amazon suggests that it may take a few minutes for the new wake word to be updated. You may not be able to use the device during this time.


  • "Echo" is shortest wake word with only two syllables. Try this wake word if you use your Echo frequently, that way each of your commands will be one syllable shorter.
  • The "Computer" wake word is a nod to the Star Trek series. If you want to use "Computer," then refer to your computer as something else (like "PC," "Mac," or "Laptop") to avoid triggering the Echo when you don't want to.
