Amazon recently updated Alexa with a new feature that lets users print to-do lists, recipes, and more, with a quick voice command. The AI assistant will also notify you when your ink levels are low and can even set up automatic ink refill purchases at a discount through Amazon.

To print with Alexa, you need an Echo speaker and a printer that can connect to wifi or LAN. Amazon doesn’t have a list of supported printers, but the Alexa printing support page says models from Brother, Canon, Epson, and HP should work. The company says it plans to support more printers in the future.

Your Echo device(s) and printer must be turned on and connected to the same wifi network first, then just say, “Alexa, discover my printer,” and the two devices should handle the connection processes.

Once Alexa and your printer are buddied up, you can use voice commands to print all sorts of documents without extra apps. Unfortunately, you can’t print specific documents saved on your phone, PC, or other devices, but there’s still plenty your printer can spit out. Here are some examples:

The requested document should start printing right away, though Alexa may provide you with extra options first. For example, the AI helper will prompt you will multiple test page printing options if you ask for one. However, Alexa can also respond to highly specific requests, such as “print a worksheet about letter sounds for kindergarteners,” or “print a coloring page with ocean animals.”

Despite only working with a handful of Skills, Alexa’s print feature still has numerous applications, so definitely try it out if it works with your printer. Just be sure to delete your command history if you don’t want to share your print history with Amazon employee—or anyone else.
