Amazon's Alexa is already pretty helpful but you can make it even more valuable by giving it more information about yourself.

A large part of that is making sure it knows what time it is. This is usually taken care of during setup, but if you move or take your device someplace you may want to do all of this manually.

How do you do this? We've got you.

The easiest way to change the time zone is within the Alexa app. This works for whatever Echo device you have on your network, from the Echo Dot to the Echo Studio.
