Amazon's Echo Just Got a Brand New Grand Tour Themed Alarm

By Tom Pritchard on at

Earlier this year Amazon released a Grand Tour themed alarm for the Echo, featuring Hammond and May arguing, plus Clarkson screaming at you to wake up. Not one to squander the marketing potential of the trio of presenters, it's just released a brand new one. Coincidentally it coincides with the second episode of Series 2 hitting Prime Video.

Here's a video of the alarm in action. We apologise for the vertical video, but you can blame that on Amazon not us.

It's not quite as in your face as the last one, but it does feature plenty of the presenters' trademark bickering and Clarkson's lack of patience.

To change the alarm on your device, go into the Alexa app and hit the hamburger menu to the left. Select Timers & Alarms, then the Alarms tab. Tap 'Manage alarm volume and default sound' then under 'Notification Sounds' tap whatever sound you currently have and you'll get a list of options. Tap Celebrity, and within that you'll find 'Grand Tour'.

Yeah it could be easier, but if you want to swap your Echo's default alarm for three car journalists you now know how.
