Favourites on homepage

You may also rapidly review your shopping lists, to-do lists, and music that has recently been played. Numerous devices, such as plugs, switches, lights, locks, cameras, and more, are supported.
Redesigned Activity section
The Activity area on Amazon appears to have undergone a facelift as well; it now displays data such as timers, approaching alerts, reminders, and more.
Customisable shortcuts bar
Users may now customize the top shortcut bar on the home page to display information such as shopping lists, routines, and alarms based on their preferences. Additionally, it may display connecting device information such as the number of on lights and room temperature. It may take some time for the functionality to appear on your smartphone since it is still in the rollout phase.
Revamped Devices section
Users may now search for their devices by name and arrange them alphabetically, by date added, or by device type in the redesigned Devices area. Users have the option to switch to the Map View if they are not interested in the List View. It takes the place of the present “Groups” feature, however only a small number of US users have access to it yet.
