“Alexa, thank my driver” new feature rolls out

A new Alexa future has been added to your devices, just in time for the holiday shipping rush.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO)— A new Alexa future has been added to your devices, just in time for the holiday shipping rush.

“Alexa, thank my driver.” That’s all you have to say to show your appreciation to your Amazon driver.

In addition to a thank you, the driver will get a $5 tip paid for by Amazon. Amazon will keep paying those $5 tips until a total of $1 million is spent.

The five drivers who get the most thank you’s during that period will each get $10,000 plus another $10,000 for a charity of their choice.

Again, just say “Alexa, thank my driver” into an Alexa-enabled device and the “thank you” and tip go to your most recent delivery driver. It works with Echo and Echo Show or the Alexa and Amazon shopping mobile apps.
