How To Turn Off Alexa Alarm With Voice 

If you want to turn off the Alexa alarm with a voice, this means you want to use the Alexa voice assistant. Turning off the Alexa alarm with voice is easy. You need to know the right voice commands to do so.

You need to first wake up Alexa with its wake word (whatever you use like Alexa, Echo, My Computer, etc) to turn it off. When Alexa lights up, you can use one of the voice commands to turn off the Alexa alarm like:

“Alexa, Stop Alarm” If You Want To Turn It Off Before It Rings. 

If you have more than one alarm, Alexa will ask you to stop which alarm. If you have only one alarm turned on, it will turn it off. It will only stop the current alarm from an occurrence. If you say, “Alexa, cancel,” it cancels all the alarms that are set to ring sometime during the day.

‘Alexa, Stop”

You can also say, Alexa, stop to turn off the Alexa alarm with voice when no music is playing around. You can also replace the words Stop with cancel, silence, Hush, end, halt, discontinue, etc. However, do not use the word quiet as this word is used to decrease the volume of the device by one step.
