Alexa is packing some serious skills!
I just recently learned about all the skills Alexa has. Well, I shouldn’t say ALL but I am now using quite a few! Sadly the one I use more often than I like it the Phone Finder Skill. I am constantly misplacing my phone!
You can ask the weather, control your home smart devices.
The Food & Drink skills available are a huge help to me!
<> MySomm – MySomm turns Alexa into Wine Gal, your personal wine sommelier that can give you wine recommendations for your meals. With hundreds of recommendations, she can give you her thoughts on what wine to pair with your prime rib, or what wine goes with goat cheese.
<>What Beer?– Looking for the perfect beer pairing for your dinner?? Just ask “What beer?” and let “What beer?” help you complete that perfect meal.
There are countless Recipe and Meal idea skills!
You can even order pizza, Coffee from Starbucks, Make reservations at restaurants ALL from ALEXA!! It’s pretty incredible.
Alexa even has some great Skills for the little ones in your life!
Games and trivia to engage and challenge their minds.
