Amazon has rolled out a new set of tools called "Alexa Blueprints" on Thursday that let you create custom responses for its Alexa smart assistant on an Echo.
You can use it to tell the dogwalker where you keep your leash, for example, or to have Alexa provide a house guest with information on where to find the best pizza in town. Alexa can remind the babysitter when the kids need to be in bed and give him/her the phone numbers where you can be reached. You can even use Alexa Blueprints to create custom trivia games.
It's a fun tool that will help you get more out of your Amazon Echo.
CNBC can teach you how to create the custom responses HERE.
