Hot takes

???? Big fart is the only new skill in the top 10. It probably made it to the top because it’s been so popular in the UK marketplace for a while.
???? There hasn’t been much change in the past 6 months. There are only 5 skills that were released after August that are now at the top 50.
???? Skills are more likely to drop in rating than improve. This is probably because you can only go up to 5, but drop to 0 (which is farther).

HOW IT WORKS Pro Tip: Link your phone before you lose it. 1. To set up your phone, say “Alexa, Find My Phone” and you’ll be asked for your cell number. 2. To confirm it’s really you, we’ll send a 4-digit code via text message to your cell phone. Provide that 4-digit code to Alexa by saying “Alexa” and then your code. 3. That’s it! You’re all set up. Now when you’ve lost your phone, simply say “Alexa, Find My Phone.” IMPORTANT INFORMATION To add additional numbers, just say “Alexa, ask Find My Phone to add a contact.” Only US cell numbers will work in the US. We don’t support landlines or non-US numbers at this time. We use four US-based outbound phone numbers. To ensure your phone will accept calls from these numbers, be sure to add them to your contacts: - 1.866.217.2815 - 1.866.217.8536 - 1.866.217.8642 - 1.866.217.9170 Some cell providers will block the number we call you from. To prevent this, open your device's settings, select Phone, and select “Blocked Contacts.” Unblock the numbers listed above. If you are not receiving the code via text message, text "un-stop" to all four of the numbers listed above. We do not sell your cell number to third-party companies. LIST OF COMMANDS - Alexa, Find My Phone. - Alexa, ask Find My Phone to add a contact. - Alexa, ask Find My Phone to call . - Alexa, ask Find My Phone to delete a contact. - Alexa, ask Find My Phone to list contacts.47915-170.44%08.08% HomeiRobotYou're just a few words away from a cleaner home and a freshly cut lawn!!

Turn it on and off, launch games and apps, play and pause videos, and more, all from any Alexa-enabled device or Alexa apps on iOS and Android. To get started, sign in to the Xbox One console you want to control, tap "Enable Skill" in the Alexa app, and sign in with the Microsoft account you're using on that console. The Xbox you're signed in to will be automatically linked (you can also enable it on your console under Settings > Kinect & devices > Digital assistants). To change the device name of your Xbox or add additional consoles to control, go to the Smart Home Devices section of the Alexa app. To learn what the Xbox skill can do, just say “Alexa, ask Xbox what can I say?" Here are some commands to get you started. Standard commands For access to all the commands available for the Xbox skill on Alexa, use the standard command structure, like this: • "Alexa, tell Xbox to turn on." (Make sure instant on is enabled on your console.) • "Alexa, tell Xbox to turn off." • "Alexa, tell Xbox to launch Forza Horizon 4" (to turn on your console, sign in, and start the game). • "Alexa, tell Xbox to pause" (while a video is playing on Xbox). • "Alexa, tell Xbox to resume." • "Alexa, tell Xbox to turn it up." • "Alexa, tell Xbox to turn volume down 5." • "Alexa, tell Xbox to record that." • "Alexa, tell Xbox to start a party." NOTE: Both "Tell Xbox" and "Ask Xbox" work for standard commands. Smart home commands You can also target the Xbox One console as a smart home device. Alexa smart home commands work for power, volume, and media controls. With smart home commands, you can drop the "Tell Xbox" or "Ask Xbox" portion, like in these examples: • "Alexa, turn on [device name]." • "Alexa, turn off [device name]." • "Alexa, pause on [device name]." • "Alexa, resume on [device name]." • "Alexa, volume up on [device name]." The default device name for Xbox consoles is "Xbox". Additional consoles have unique default names like "Xbox 4B1D". You can change the device name for smart home commands to something else – "Basement Xbox" or "Den Xbox" for example. This becomes especially important if you want to use Alexa with more than one Xbox. You can change the device name for your Xbox under Smart Home Devices in the Alexa mobile app. If you've recently used your Xbox One and there aren't any other smart home devices paired with Alexa, you can drop the device name altogether, like this: • "Alexa, pause" • "Alexa, play" • "Alexa, resume" • "Alexa, skip forward" TV & video skill commands A smaller set of video skill commands are used for TV and game functions on Xbox. You can enable and manage video skills under Settings > TV & Video > Xbox in the Alexa app. Examples include: • "Alexa, launch Forza Horizon 4." • "Alexa, launch Forza Horizon 4 on Xbox." • "Alexa, launch Netflix." • "Alexa, launch Netflix on Xbox." • "Alexa, watch PBS." • "Alexa, watch PBS on Xbox." • "Alexa, record that." NOTE: Your Alexa device needs to be linked with your console via the TV & video setting to enable these TV & video skill commands.

You can skip a question by saying "next" or "I don't know," but skipped questions won't count towards the twenty question limit. If Alexa guesses what you were thinking of in twenty questions or less, she wins! Note: If you're thinking of something that is not an animal or vegetable, say mineral.

That means wasted resources that were used to grow it, wasted energy that was used to transport it, and wasted money that you used to bring it home. A family of four spends around $1,500 a year on food they don’t eat. Such wastefulness is unreasonable, but luckily, there’s something we can do about it: make the most of the food we already buy. The Save The Food skill allows you to do this with ease. Ask about any food, and Alexa can help you store it to last longer, discern if it’s still good, and even revive it when it’s past its prime. Just ask things like: • Alexa, ask Save The Food how to store asparagus. • Alexa, ask Save The Food if my avocados are still good. • Alexa, ask Save The Food if wilted celery is okay to eat. So, enable the Save The Food skill to start saving resources, money, and most importantly, food.13954386.10%-0.215.22% PantsT26.techAsk Farty Pants to do a fart and hear a hilarious random fart sound.

Once you know the name of your thermostat, you can say the following: Getting the temperature: “Alexa, ask ecobee what the current temperature is.” “Alexa, ask ecobee how cold it is in the Living Room.” Getting the current set point / mode: “Alexa, ask ecobee what the Living Room is set to.” “Alexa, ask ecobee if heating is enabled.” Setting the temperature: “Alexa, tell ecobee to set the temperature in my Bedroom.” “Alexa, ask ecobee to set the Downstairs temperature to 72.” Resuming your schedule: “Alexa, tell ecobee to return to my schedule.” “Alexa, ask ecobee to cancel hold.” Increasing the temperature: “Alexa, tell ecobee I'm cold.” “Alexa, ask ecobee to make it warmer by 3 degrees.” Decreasing the temperature: “Alexa, tell ecobee I'm hot.” “Alexa, ask ecobee to make it cooler by 4 degrees.” Running the fan: “Alexa, tell ecobee to turn fan on.” “Alexa, ask ecobee to turn on fan in my Bedroom.” Setting Away, Home and Sleep comfort settings: “Alexa, tell ecobee I'm back home.” “Alexa, ask ecobee to set my thermostat to home mode.” “Alexa, tell ecobee I'm going out.” “Alexa, tell ecobee good night.” Changing mode: “Alexa, tell ecobee to turn on heat mode.” “Alexa, ask ecobee to activate cool mode.” “Alexa, tell ecobee to turn off auto mode.” Note: If switching modes, your ecobee should be switched to Off mode first.

If you’ve just made a change to your equipment, please wait a few minutes for the status to sync.
