Alexa Tip: Change the Device Name

Amazon gives Alexa device customers the ability to change the device name that is assigned to each device and the name that is shown in your Amazon Alexa account configuration. These names show up on the web version and in the app.

By default, Alexa devices come with pretty standard names, but as your Alexa device farm grows (which seems to be the case for anyone who has tried Alexa) you’ll want to create custom names to better identify which device resides in which location. For example, you could have a kitchen Alexa, or a bedroom Alexa.

You can change the device name for each Alexa device that you own using the Alexa app for Android or iOS – or on the web at:
  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Choose the device you want to change and open its properties page.
  3. Locate the Device Name setting.
  4. Tap or click the Edit option.
  5. Enter the new name.
