There’s a fix for that!
Sometimes Alexa doesn’t hear me quite right when I’m rushing around the kitchen cooking and setting timers. She sets a 2-minute timer instead of a 20-minute timer, and it’s annoying to have to delete and re-set it!
Fortunately, it’s easy to fix. Just say, “Alexa add 18 minutes to the muffin timer” or “Alexa subtract 18 minutes from the muffin timer,” and problem solved!
(Take it from me—it’s a lot faster than deleting the timer and setting a new one, especially if you have multiple timers going.)
You can also do this if your timer ends and your muffins still need a few minutes—even if you already dismissed your timer with an “Alexa, stop.” (In that case, she’ll just tell you that she’s starting a new timer.)
