How to change Alexas name to Ziggy on an Amazon

Quick steps 

  • Open the Alexa smartphone app
  • Go to the devices menu and select the Echo device you want to change the wake word of
  • Open the device’s settings and look for Wake Word under the General settings
  • Pick Ziggy from the list and hit OK

While Amazon’s smart speakers are officially called Echo devices, most of us likely know them by their most commonly used wake word: Alexa.

But did you know that whichever of the best Alexa speakers you own (be it an Amazon Echo Studio, an Amazon Echo  Dot (4th Gen), or an Amazon Echo Show 10) you can actually change the word you use to ask it for help? There’s Alexa as well as Amazon, Computer, Echo, and now Ziggy to choose between.
