Do you have a Yeelight bulb? Do you have an Echo device? Great. Let’s link them together. In this 3-step guide, we will show you how to link Alexa and the Yeelight bulb (tunable white). And by the end of this guide, you’ll be able to say ‘Alexa, turn on the yeelight’.
Let’s Link It
i. We need to add the Yeelight skill to Alexa. To do that, launch the Alexa app, and at the main menu select ‘Skills’.
