What you need to know

  • Razer Synapse 3 now supports Alexa through a dedicated module.
  • Alexa support allows you to control your PC, chroma lighting, and smart home devices through your PC or headset.
  • The feature is available now on supported devices.

Razer announced today that Razer Synapse 3 now works with Amazon's Alexa through a dedicated module. Support for Alexa within Razer Synapse 3 means you can control your PC's chroma lighting and smart home devices with your voice without needing additional Alexa hardware. You can also use it to control your PC with your voice, such as turning up the volume or opening a browser.

Razer Synapse 3 works with many Razer devices (opens in new tab) as well as devices from other companies such as MSI, Thermaltake, and AMD. IT allows you to take advantage of advanced settings. You can use it to rebind buttons, assign macros, and personalize device lighting.

Alexa support can help with a number of Razer Synapse 3's features, but people will probably have some fun playing with voice-controlled lighting. While you're in a game, you could ask Alexa to switch your lights to match your team color or dim the lights if you're in a tense situation. Using Alexa's integration with Synapse 3, you can control ambient Phillips Hue lighting as well, so you can make your whole room match your PC's RGB lighting with just your voice.

You can grab Razer Synapse 3 for free from Razer's website (opens in new tab).
