Make Alexa do Star Wars impressions!

Grab some popcorn and ask Alexa, "Alexa, can you talk like Yoda?". Then sit back and find out, you will!


Get Alexa to guess the song you can't remember the title of!

Heard a brilliant song on the radio and don't know who it's by? Simply say, "Alexa, play the song that goes..." then add the lyrics you can remember. It's amazing!


Get Alexa to give a personal greeting!

You can program Alexa to say whatever you like when you get home from school. She'll even ask you if you've had a nice day, which is nice, isn't it?


Do you deserve a high-5?

No problem. Say, "Alexa, High Five!" and she'll give you a high 5 in the way only a desktop speaker can. It's worth it, though.


Get Alexa to give you a random fact!

Is your brain crying out for some weird trivia? Say "Alexa, tell me something interesting" and she'll give you a fact to amaze all of your friends!


Do you play the guitar?

As any guitar player will know, keeping your instrument in tune is very important. It'll sound rubbish, otherwise. Just say, "Alexa, ask Guitar Tuner to tune my guitar" and it will give you a series of notes to help. Thanks, Alexa!


There's a cool Frozen trick too!

Just say, "Alexa, do want to build a snowman?"and see what happens!


Get Alexa to become your own personal joke machine!

Why not try, "Alexa, why is 6 afraid of 7?" and prepare to laugh your face off. Or maybe smile, then.


Ask Alexa to prepare a snack

Why not say, "Alexa, make me a sandwich!" and see what she says! You'll need bread and some ingredients, so don't get too excited at having your own personal chef.


Find out if Alexa is a fan of Dr. Seuss!

Simply ask your robot pal, "Alexa, do you like green eggs and ham?" and she'll do the rest.
