As the proud owner of 3 smart speakers with Alexa support, specifically 1 Echo Dot from the fourth generation and 2 from the third generation respectively. My mind already assumed in the middle of the pandemic that I had to “ domotize ” my house and today it is a bad vice with which I am very happy.
But leaving aside my personal experience with the device in question, the important thing is how it communicates with the Xbox. In fact, I already told you about it in another post, the integration is good, Microsoft has worked with Amazon to provide support; so much so that a brand new application for the assistant will be launched soon on the American console.
Alexa and Xbox Game Pass
In search of better integration, Amazon added new skills, which for those who are not familiar with the assistant are skills or voice commands that perform actions. These new skills aim to allow the user to benefit from his subscription to Xbox Game Pass from the assistant.
The new order, not yet available in Europe at the moment, is something like “Alexa, download the XXX game from Xbox Game Pass

Of course, for this you must first have the console connected to the Alexa app from your mobile. Do not be afraid, it is very simple. Do you have a smart speaker at home? Do you use Alexa for tasks like creating snapshots on Xbox or launching games?
