I was gifted one of these last year but just set it up.

Very cool!

Hit me with your tried and tested skills ideas. Thank you!

If you have a few Alexas scattered around the house...."Alexa, make an announcement"

If you have spotify premium then you can just ask Alexa to play any song, that's pretty useful.   Or build a playlist for each family member.

Our kids are addicted to Amazon Story Time.

Personally, my favourite is "Alexa, pull my finger".  But that's just me.

Unless you're Scottish....

I stayed in a hotel the other day with Alexa and I fell in love with her!

My favourites were pretty simple -
Alexa, play me some 80's love songs
Alexa, whats the temperature going to be today
Alexa, where is the closest Thai restaurant
Alexa, what does valourised mean
Alexa turn the music down
Alexa, what's the date today
