Wondering how to update Amazon Echo? Alexa checks for updates every single night. If you want to force ECHO to update, press the mute button and let Alexa sit that way for at least 30 minutes and she will force update.

Echo can do date calculations. You can ask Alexa “How many days until December 25th” and she will give you the correct number of days.
