Make Your Echo Dot Even Smarter With The Best Alexa Skills
Skills for Amazon’s Alexa is easier than ever. Now, all you have to do is say, “Alexa, enable Lyft,” and poof — you’ve given your Echo speaker or other Alexa-enabled device the ability to order you a ride. But there are now more than 15,000 skills, according to Voicebot, so how do you decide or know which Skills to enable? Well, you can search the Alexa app by category, such as Smart Home, Food and Drink or Lifestyle.
Alexa is found in Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Tap, Fire TV, and Fire Tablet. Work is underway to expand Alexa’s reach to other smart devices, such as third-party speakers and Ecobee4 Thermostat. Since the virtual assistant is seen in all places now, you can take the opportunity to make it as smart as you want!
You can hear about Prime member-exclusive deals from Alexa if you request. However, you will have to use an Alexa-enabled device to place an order. Alexa can also wake you up with specific tunes or genre or music. This works with Pandora, TuneIn, SiriusXM, Spotify, and iHeartRadio along with Amazon’s music services. There are about 50 more such useful Alexa skills you can take a look at!
