How To Access Amazon Echo’s Celebrity Alarms

Many people (this writer included) received one of the Amazon Echo speakers during the holidays, and since it can complete 5,000 different tasks, it’s understandable that some would get glossed over, like Echo’s celebrity alarms.

That’s right!  If you use your Echo device as an alarm to get up in the morning, you can set your device through the corresponding Alexa app to have one of six celebrities (The cast of BBC’s Grand Tour, Dan Marino, Jason Schwartzman, Alec Baldwin and Missy Elliott) act as your alarm.

So, how do you access the celebrity alarms?  Follow the steps below!  Call it a hunch, but we bet Amazon will try and add more celebrity alarms in the future.  Why not ask some of the actors featured in their original programming?  Seriously, who wouldn’t want Jeffrey Tambor to wake them up?!
