Woman laughing

3 surprising ways to have a little bit of fun with Alexa:

#1. Alexa has skillz

Did you know Alexa can rap and beat box? She’ll be the life of your next party. Give it a try by saying “Alexa, can you rap?” or “Alexa, can you beat box?” Make it rain, Alexa.

#2. A sarcastic smart home

I love my smart home devices (almost) as much as I love my Alexa smart speaker. When you’re connecting a new smart home device, you get to decide what you’d like to call it... and you can be as creative as you'd like. When I say “Alexa, tell Roomba to start cleaning,” Alexa responds “Ok, Cinderella has started cleaning.”

#3. So many laughs, so little time

Alexa is filled with easter eggs. Ask her to talk like Yoda, or find Chuck Norris... or for more cowbell. Exchange Shakespearian quotes with her (“Alexa, Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?”). And for all the 80's music fans out there, try "Alexa, never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down.” Enjoy :)

"Alexa, open puppy jams!"
