Probably no surprise but you can put those mp3 and cd players away, Alexa to the rescue! Have some pc speakers laying around - even better. If you have Amazon prime just ask her to play scary sounds, thunderstorm, or Halloween music. I figured on the Halloween music play list but the scary sounds and thunderstorm was a great surprise. Now I'm even more pleased that I got the Google wifi mesh a couple months ago when I replaced my router. With three access points I have cranking wifi everywhere outside the house. I'm sure Google home would be great too but if you're invested in Amazon prime music and Alexa, this is great. Thank God I can retire my cd players! Woo!
