Stay entertained during the holidays with Alexa’s latest updates

Customers are turning to their Echo Show devices – now more than ever – for entertainment. And, they’re viewing more than twice as much video content on their Echo Show devices this time of year compared to last year from streaming services like Prime Video, Hulu, NBC and others. We’re excited to bring Netflix to Echo Show devices, giving customers even more at-home entertainment choices. Now, customers will have access to the full Netflix catalog – including Netflix Originals like “The Queen’s Gambit” and “The Crown” – using their voice.

Customers can easily search, browse, and stream movies or TV shows by just asking Alexa – so that they can spend more time enjoying content rather than searching for it. To get started just say “Alexa, show me comedy movies on Netflix” to find something to watch or “Alexa, watch ‘The Crown’ on Netflix.”

“Customers tell us that they love the convenience of Alexa and being able to use voice to browse and control the content they watch on Echo Show and Fire TV” said Heather Zorn, Director, Alexa Entertainment. “We are excited to add Netflix to our list of content providers on Echo Show and bring the convenience of Alexa to even more Netflix members.”

Simply say, “Alexa, open Netflix” and log into your account to get started.

In addition to adding more content to choose from, we want to make it easier than ever to search for your next show or movie. We recently introduced a new video home page to provide customized recommendations for what to watch next — simply say, “Alexa, open video home.” New video detail pages also offer more information on the selected series or movie at a glance.
