5 Alexa skills to try this week

Every so often we take a look at the 15,000 or so Alexa skills worth checking out. Here are a few from the new, popular, and trending categories of the Alexa Skills Store.

In recent Alexa news, the intelligent assistant is now able to control Fire TV devices hands-free, and Alexa now answers question about going back to school like “Alexa, teach me something” and “Alexa, tell me a back to school joke.”

Sports Jeopardy

Since its release in January 2016, the Jeopardy skill has been one of the most popular skills in the Alexa Skills Store, and in recent weeks, maker Sony Pictures Television has released new skills for sports.

Each week the Sports Jeopardy skill gets 12 new questions to answer.

Just like the real Sports Jeopardy, the skill is hosted by former ESPN broadcaster Dan Patrick, and just like the original, all answers must come in the form of a question.

Teen Jeopardy

Teen Jeopardy is the third Jeopardy skill in the Alexa Skills Store. 12 new questions are released every Friday, all suitable for teenage and family participants.

Would You Rather for Family

Would you rather kiss a jellyfish or step on a crab? Would you rather eat a stick of butter or a gallon of ice cream? This skill is currently in the most popular category of the Alexa Skills Store, and as the name indicates, has family-friendly questions so most anybody can play.

Better Crocker

The new Betty Crocker beta skill talks about politics :) Just kidding. This skill can tell you how to do a large variety of things in the kitchen, mostly surrounding cooking advice, and ingredient substitutions. The skill can answer questions like “What’s a good substitute for baking soda?” Or “How do I keep my burger from falling apart on the grill?”

Sleep Sounds: Wind Chimes

Ambient sound skills have always been popular in the Alexa Skills Store, and wind chimes skill is no different, racking up a five-star review for its melodic sounds. The Wind Chime skill was made by Jeff Bolton, creator of ambient sound skills popular in the skills store like grandfather clocks and rainforest as well as underwater noise, box fan, and heartbeat.
