Amazon Alexa Benefits for WiFi Connect Appliances

Your WiFi Connect Appliances work with Amazon Alexa to take GE, Cafe and Monogram's suite of WiFi Connect Appliances to the next level with hands-free voice controls.

You must have one or more GE Appliances or Monogram WiFi Connect products connected to your home WiFi network. For more information, visit: WiFi Connected Appliances. To confirm your appliance has WiFi Connect Capability, visit: Does My Appliance Have WiFi Connect Capability?
