I’ve gone through our home and renamed all our Echo devices so that they are pretty logical. For example the one in the family room is called “Family Room,” the one in the kitchen is called “Kitchen” and so on. There’s a number of applications where this is a pretty valuable thing to do. One of those is for using the Drop-in feature.
If you don’t know (or remember) what a device name is, you can always open up the mobile app and locate it. However, what if you’re at someone else’s house, or another location where Echo devices are in use? You can’t immediately know what the closest device’s name is.
Or, can you?
You can actually use the following voice command for Alexa…
“Alexa, what is your device name?”
Alexa will respond with…
“The name is <device name”
