Have you got the Alexa app yet? You will need to download it to your phone or tablet first.

To download the Alexa app, go to the app store on your mobile device and search for "Alexa app." Then select and download the app.

Then plug in your Amazon Echo and turn it on. The light ring on Amazon Echo turns blue and then orange. When the light turns orange, Amazon Echo greets you.

Follow the guided instructions in the app to connect Amazon Echo to a Wi-Fi network.

If your Amazon Echo doesn't connect to your Wi-Fi network, unplug and then plug the device into a power outlet to restart it. If you still have trouble, reset your Amazon Echo to its factory settings and set it up again.

Once connected to Wi-Fi, you can now use your Amazon Echo device. To get started, say the "wake word" and then speak naturally to Alexa. Your Amazon Echo device is set to respond to the wake word "Alexa" by default, but you can use the Alexa app to change the wake word at any time. In the app, go to Settings, select your Amazon Echo device and then select Wake word.
