If you ever wanted to – for some strange reason – wake up to Jeremy Clarkson shouting at you,then you’re in luck.
Amazon has continued its marketing push for the upcoming The Grand Tour, starring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. The ex-Top Gear trio has taken their talents to Amazon Prime’s for an original series that is premiering on November 18th, with a new episode streaming weekly for a total of 12 episodes. Now, if you have an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, voice assistant Alexa can wake you up with a new alarm starring the hosts’ voices. That’s right, if you want Clarkson, Hammond or May waking you up then you can set “Grand Tour” as your default alarm sound from the new celebrities section in the Alexa app.
The new celebrities section also suggests that Amazon’s Alexa could be expanding to even more voices in the future, but why would we need anything else when we have good ‘ol May calling us rubbish to start off the morning. The Verge even has a video of the alarm in action.
