If you too are one of them, let’s join together with your family and friends, and let’s smartly keep track of Santa’s location with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
To ensure you get an engaging Santa tracking experience, smart displays like Google Nest Hub (second-gen) or the Amazon Echo Show 8 (second-gen) would prove to be ideal. These smart devices will offer fun-filled on-screen holiday visuals for both kids and adults. Keep track of Santa’s arrival via a smart speaker like Google’s Nest Audio or Amazon’s Echo Dot, or by using the Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant app.
Officially the Santa tracking starts on Christmas Eve, which occurs on Friday this year. As we all are busy with the count down until December 25, you can start using Alexa or Google devices to start preparing for jolly ol’ Saint Nick’s upcoming holiday adventure.
