Don’t have a morning Alexa routine yet?
Here’s why routines are great…
They let you automatically make something happen (like music turning on) at a specific time every day, upon an Alexa voice command, any time you arrive at or leave a place and, now, when your morning alarm goes off. You set it and forget it.

Try this morning routine…
You can easily set up an Alexa routine to…
- Gradually turn on your bedroom lights
- Brew your morning coffee (all you need is an Alexa smart plug!)
- Give you weather, news, and traffic updates for the day
- And lastly play some morning tunes to get you out of bed
And you can now make all of this happen just by dismissing your Alexa alarm!
