  2. In the first box, write what phrase you will say. The same phrase will appear in the second box.

  3. To create a shortcut, you can put a short phrase in the first box, and a longer phrase in the second box. For example, you say “Bread” and Voiceitt tells Alexa the command, "add bread to my shopping list." Screen Shot 2020-12-28 at 11.13.02 AM-2

  4. After adding a command, click the "Try it" button to test the Alexa responds correctly.

  5. Once you've confirmed that the command works, tap "Save". 
  6. Repeat this process to add as many commands as you would like.
