Hey there, so you’ve been thinking of how to put your Alexa in pairing mode? This is the one-stop guide to teach you how to do that.
When you place your Alexa in pairing mode, the device is put into action such that you will be able to pair your devices without a screen into pairing mode.
If you’ve been experiencing problems, you can of course unpair and re-pair your Bluetooth devices.
However, this article focuses on putting your Alexa into pairing mode and it all goes down by accessing the Alexa setting on the app.
As you will see later on, there is also a need to head to the Bluetooth settings on your device or app for the pairing.
Pairing mode is a feature that allows you to connect two Bluetooth enabled devices to each other. Pairing mode can be used for a variety of purposes such as connecting two phones, pairing a phone with a speaker or headphones, or connecting two computers.
To use pairing mode, the devices must be in close proximity to each other and on the same Bluetooth network. The devices must also have Bluetooth enabled and activated.
Once this is done, one device will be designated as the “master” and the other will be designated as the “slave.” The master device will display a list of available slave devices it can pair with and then ask for confirmation before initiating pairing mode.
The slave device will display its own list of available master devices it can pair with and then ask for confirmation before attempting to connect.The master devices will then be prompted for confirmation before attempting to connect with the slave device.
Alexa is a voice-activated virtual assistant that is designed to work with various products. It can be used to search for information, play music, read the news, set timers and alarms, manage to-do and shopping lists, controls smart home devices, and more.
In order to use Alexa, you will need an Amazon account. Once you have one you will need to link your Amazon account with your Alexa device by following these steps:
1) Connect your Bluetooth speaker or headphones
2) Open the Alexa app on your phone
3) Tap on the menu button in the top left corner of the screen
4) Tap on Settings
5) Scroll down until you see Bluetooth Devices
6) Tap on Add a new device and follow the instructions
Setting up Alexa for Bluetooth Connections on Windows 10 or Mac OS X
There are two ways to connect Alexa with Bluetooth on Windows 10 or Mac OS X.
The first method, which is the most suitable, is to use the Alexa app and the second is by using the Amazon website.
- The first step to connecting Alexa with Bluetooth on Windows 10 or Mac OS X is by downloading and installing the Alexa app from the App Store.
- Once installed, launch it and then sign in with your Amazon account credentials.
- Once signed in, select Settings from the menu bar at the top of the page and then scroll down until you see Devices.
- Select Add Device in order to search for a nearby device that’s compatible with Bluetooth (typically this will be a mobile phone).
- Once found, select it and then select Pair Now to finalize the connection.
I’d advise you to refer to the user guide of your mobile phone, in case you come across any problem that needs more information about pairing your device with Bluetooth.
How to Pair Alexa with Your Computer?
It is not hard to pair Alexa with your computer. You just need to download the Alexa app and follow the instructions. After you are done, you can use your voice rather than a mouse and keyboard to control your computer.
Alexa is not just a virtual assistant. It also has many other features that make it worth pairing with your computer.
Some of these features include playing music, reading Kindle books, answering questions and more.
How to Pair Alexa with Your Tablet?
First, make sure that you have the latest version of the Alexa app on both devices.
Next, open the app and select “Settings” from the navigation menu.
Once in Settings, scroll down to “Pair devices” and click on it. Select your tablet from the list of available devices and confirm by clicking “Next” on both screens.
You should now see a new device listed in your Alexa app under Settings > Devices > Device name > Pairing status: Connected!
The pairing process is complete!
How to Pair Alexa With Multiple Devices at the Same Time
The first step is to make sure that both of your devices are connected to the internet.
Once they are both connected, open the Alexa app on one of your devices and tap on “Devices.”
From here, select “Add Device” and choose which device you would like to add.
Once your devices are both connected, make sure that the “Smart Home Control” setting is enabled on both of your devices.
This will allow Alexa to reach out to your smart home devices such that you can now tell Alexa:
- What device you would like her to control
- Create a custom command for your device
- Choose to play a fun new game.
