Some popular white noise skills include 'Sleep Sounds: White Noise', 'Ambient Noise', and 'White Noise by TMSOFT'. To enable a skill, simply open your Alexa app, go to the menu, and select 'Skills & Games'. Search for your desired white noise skill, and tap 'Enable to use' once you've chosen one.

  2. Ask Alexa to play white noise: Once you've enabled a white noise skill, simply ask Alexa by saying, 'Alexa, play white noise.' Your Echo device should begin playing a soothing white noise track.

  3. Set a loop for continuous playback: Many white noise skills offer an option to loop the sound, ensuring uninterrupted playback throughout the night. To do this, say 'Alexa, ask [skill name] to loop.' Replace '[skill name]' with the name of the white noise skill you have enabled. For example, 'Alexa, ask Sleep Sounds: White Noise to loop.'

  1. Adjust the volume: If you find the white noise too loud or too quiet, ask Alexa to adjust the volume by saying, 'Alexa, set the volume to [desired level].' Replace '[desired level]' with a number between 1 and 10 – with 10 being the loudest.

  2. Set a sleep timer (optional): If you prefer your white noise to stop playing after a specific amount of time, you can ask Alexa to set a sleep timer. Say, 'Alexa, set a sleep timer for [duration].' Replace '[duration]' with your choice of time – for example, '30 minutes' or '2 hours.'

By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your Alexa-enabled smart speaker delivers continuous white noise to help you sleep, relax, and concentrate on tasks. Happy listening!
