Wrapping up the year with Alexa
If you are a new Amazon Echo device user, there are always upgrades being made to the platform.
Some new questions to ask and try:
Just ask, "Alexa, tell me a holiday story."
"Alexa, tell me a fun fact about sleep."
"Alexa, test my history knowledge."
"Alexa, remind me to feed the dog every day at 7am." You can now set, browse, and cancel repeating reminders. Learn how.
"Alexa, open Fireplace Sounds."
"Alexa, how far away is the North Pole?"
"Alexa, what's free from Audible?"
"Alexa, what are the best films of 2017?"
"Alexa, play 'Footloose.'" + "Alexa, play more like this." With Amazon Music, you can now discover new tunes by asking Alexa to play music similar to any song or artist that is currently playing.
"Alexa, sing a Christmas rap."
"Alexa, how do I make a call?"
"Alexa, who is the strongest Pokémon?"
"Alexa, tell me a football joke."
"Alexa, start Holiday Song Quiz."
"Alexa, who is the highest paid actor?"
"Alexa, what's your favorite song?"
"Alexa, how do I play music in all my rooms?" Multi-room music allows you to play and control music from Spotify, SiriusXM, and Amazon Music across multiple Echo devices at the same time. Learn more here.
