Switch up your weekend (or evening) game plan!

Just say "Alexa, play Song Quiz!"

Alexa will play a short music clip, and you must guess the name of the song and artist. Song Quiz is one of my all-time favorite Alexa games, and I'm not alone -- the game has 4.5 stars with almost 17,000 reviews!

You choose the music decade. When you start a game, you'll get to pick a music decade from the 1960’s through 2010’s. Each game has multiple rounds of song clips for each player to guess, and the clips get more and more challenging with each round. Last time I played, I chose the 80’s, and after several undefeated rounds I earned the level of “Backup Singer” :)

It's the perfect game to play this weekend or after dinner tonight. Play with the family and friends you've been isolating with at home or get matched up against another Alexa user as your opponent (I last played against Mike from Florida). Now that almost every night is a night in, Song Quiz is the perfect way to mix up things up!


3 Song Quiz pro tips to know before you play:

  1. It's also fun to play in teams. So if you're a group of 4, when Alexa asks how many players you are for the game, say 2 to play in 2 teams of 2 people each.
  2. Not near your Alexa device? You can also play via the Alexa app on your smart phone while you're squeezing in a walk or folding the laundry. Open the Alexa app > tap the "Alexa" icon in the center of the navigation bar > and say "Play Song Quiz!"
  3. Subscribe to unlock way more songs and fun genres. Link your Amazon account to Song Quiz to become a Song Quiz VIP. You'll get access to thousands more songs and can even play with clips from your favorite genres like 70s Classic Rock, 2000s Rap, 2019 hits and more.

Most popular room for smart speakers? The bedroom!

That's right: according to, the bedroom is now the most popular location for smart speakers. I was definitely surprised when I first read this.

According to Voicebot's analysis, what's going on is that more and more people now have multiple smart speakers in their home, and the bedroom is consistently the chosen location for the second smart speaker -- even though households with only one smart speaker are more likely to keep it in the living room or kitchen. But when you add it all up, turns out the bedroom is the most common location for smart speakers even though it's not the room users put their first smart speaker.
