Amazon Echo

Michael wants to know if he needs the Echo app to use his Alexa. Leo says yes, he does, but he could also just use a computer. He'll just need the Alexa app to set up the Echo. So if he has a computer, that will work. A smartphone is easier, however. He can also set it up with the Amazon Alexa website. Once it's all setup, he won't need it.
