Are you a part of the cool crew that owns an Alexa and a pair of AirPods? Are you trying to pair these two up but finding yourself in a pickle? Don’t worry. I’ve got your back.

I’m here to help you get Alexa and your AirPods to speak the same language (Bluetooth, in this case). So, let me show you how to connect AirPods to Alexa, and believe me. It’s as simple as pie!

The Rise Of The Wireless Era

Before we get into the ‘how-to’s,’ let’s take a quick glimpse at the wireless revolution we’re all a part of. Isn’t it amazing how we’ve seamlessly transitioned from a world of tangled wires to an era of Bluetooth and wireless magic?

Headphones, keyboards, mouse, chargers – you name it, and we have a wireless variant. Now, we’re taking it a step further, helping you pair your Alexa with AirPods for a hands-free, hassle-free experience.

Your AirPods + Alexa: The Perfect Combo

While Alexa is a powerful gadget that makes our lives so much easier, AirPods provide us with a wire-free, high-quality audio experience.

Together, they can bring a whole new level of convenience. Imagine giving Alexa commands through your AirPods, all while doing household chores, or better yet, while you’re lounging on your couch. Sounds convenient, right? Let’s see how we can make this happen!

Method 1: Let’s Get Chatty – Using Voice Commands

This method is as easy as asking Alexa about the weather. Here’s a simple step-by-step guide:

  1. Start by turning on your Alexa device.
  2. Take out your AirPods and don’t forget to press the small button on your AirPods case – this will activate the Bluetooth and make your AirPods discoverable.
  3. Now, give Alexa a command to connect to XYZ (replace XYZ with the name of your AirPods). So, if you’ve named your AirPods as “John’s AirPods,” your command would be “Alexa, connect to John’s AirPods.”

That’s it! You’re now connected and ready to go. You can now give further orders to Alexa through your AirPods. Yes, it’s that simple!

Method 2: App’ing The Game – Using the Alexa App

Don’t want to wake up your cat (or your roommate)? You can manually connect your AirPods to Alexa using the Alexa app on your phone. Here’s how:

  1. Open the case of your AirPods and press the button on the back to make it discoverable.
  2. Launch the Alexa app on your phone.
  3. Tap on the “more” icon in the bottom right corner of your screen and go to settings.
  4. In the settings tab, select the device you want to connect with your AirPods.
  5. Tap on the “Bluetooth Devices” option.
  6. If your AirPods are not previously paired with Alexa, tap on “Pair a new device.”
  7. Turn on the pairing mode on your AirPods.
  8. Tap your AirPod’s name on your phone screen, and it will start pairing.

Voila! You’re all set. This method might look like it has a lot of steps, but trust us, it’s a breeze once you start.

Sharing is Caring – Connecting Alexa With Other Bluetooth Devices

We love our AirPods, but there are times when we want to blast that new catchy song on our Bluetooth speaker for everyone to enjoy.

For such moments, you can connect Alexa to other Bluetooth devices, and the process is similar to connecting it with AirPods. Remember, before you pair Alexa with another device, make sure to disconnect your AirPods first.

  1. Go to settings on the Alexa App.
  2. Go to the Bluetooth option and tap the info button.
  3. Tap “disconnect” to disconnect your AirPods from Alexa.

You can choose to “forget device” to remove the AirPods name from your phone, but we suggest keeping it for future ease.

Wrapping it Up

AirPods and Alexa together bring the best of both worlds, eliminating tangled wires and enhancing our daily experience. Remember, the key is to understand your devices well and utilize them to their full potential.

I hope this guide gave you a clear picture of how to connect AirPods to Alexa. Now, go ahead, give it a try and explore the fantastic features Alexa offers through your AirPods!

Few years back I started to work from home, I needed a keyboard, I researched mechanical keyboard from A to Z. After that I needed a monitor, after that I needed a mouse, after that I needed desk, chair and other accessories. I did so much research and I figured this can't all go to waste and I started writing about what I know. Keyboards, Monitors, Mouses and other accessories. You can also at WolfofTablet where I cover a lot of stuff about iPads and Android Tablets. In the free time I like to play PS5 and iOS games.
