Amazon key features are now available all over the nation

The company is introducing a new feature, dubbed Alexa Announcements, that enables users to communicate between multiple Echo speakers within their house.

Customers can simply say to their Echo device, "Alexa, announce that dinner is ready", and "Dinner is ready" will then be announced in your voice to all other compatible Echo devices in your household.

The command is also useful for announcing when you're leaving the house, or to announce when you're on the way home. The new mode reportedly replaces few of Alexa's spoken responses with simple beeps.

Amazon has announced that Key features are now available across the United States, but the in-home delivery is still only available in 37 select cities and surrounding areas. The user also could say "Alexa, broadcast", followed by the message. You can also make an announcement using the phrases "Alexa, tell everyone...", or "Alexa, broadcast..." Making it a great time to pick up the Eufy Genie, especially if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the Echo Dot. As with other Alexa features, we can expect to see Amazon gradually roll Announcements out more widely in the coming weeks and months. This is going to allow you to talk to Alexa to ask it things like how the weather is, what's on your calendar and so forth.

The newest feature is now available across all Echo devices in the United States and Canada.

Alexa Announcements began rolling out in the USA and Canada this Thursday, so if you can't get the feature to work quite yet, just be patient.
