Have you spoken to your Canon printer today? If not, you should start! While they won't tell you a joke or sing you a song, compatible Canon printers now function with Alexa  and Google Home  to print off handy and entertaining pages using just your voice.
Many people know that you can use smart speakers such as Alexa  or Google Home  to turn on your lights by voice command alone. Well now you can ask a range of compatible Canon printers to print content such as colouring pages, puzzles, lined paper, musical staff paper and more.
You simply have to say: “Alexa, ask Canon printer to print a checklist” , and the job is done. You don’t even need to be in the same room as your printer: you could be in the kitchen making breakfast, brushing your teeth in the bathroom, or lounging in bed...
In a modern-day society increasingly dependent on the Internet of Things – where multitasking is the norm, and technology the facilitator, smart printing with voice control is the latest time-saving tool.
