Here’s how to stop Alexa from overdoing it
Alexa is so helpful, but sometimes she can be a little too helpful notification-wise, if you know what I mean.
It’s easy to pare down what you don’t need, be it shopping reminders (yes, I know that I’m running low on dried mango) or suggestions for Things to Try.
- Go to Alexa app and tap More in the bottom right.
- Tap Settings.
- Tap Notifications and you’ll see a list of options, including Amazon Shopping, Announcements, News and more.
- Tap on each category and turn the Notifications toggle on or off. Some are simple, like news alerts; you can opt in or out.
- For Amazon Shopping, you have more options, including Order Updates, Recommendations & Deals based on your shopping history, and my favorite: a heads up when a package is out for delivery.
Now, you can get just the notifications you want—without the extras.
