Last year we saw how smart speakers became one of the Christmas star gifts, in part at their low price (there are more than 20 euros) and partly because, if we knew, we could use them.
This Christmas is sure many of you will donate again or buy something more popular like Google Home or Amazon Echo. But many others have. So I decided to share my Christmas spirit with several voice commands these days, some funny and useful.
25 funny voice commands to use with Alexa
If you have a clever Amazon speaker we recommend you try these instructions with Alexa, it doesn't work, but it's really fun.
Alexa features songs and Christmas carols
The first four commandments are very similar to the other ones we use all year, but for Christmas titles. So, we can play some standard music or Christmas carols. Oh, and the stories are great for the kids.
- Tell me a Christmas tongue twig.
- Sing a Christmas cartoon.
- Tell me a Christmas story.
- Tell me a Christmas joke.
- Play Christmas music.
Fire sounds and videos
We can issue the following command to a mobile or smart speaker, but also to Fire TV.
If we do, we will hear (or see) the flames that blaze like a wood burning fireplace, a soothing sound, in fact.
The command varies by date
Of all the commands I've tried, that the exact voice order is:
- Open my arrival calendar.
Every day, until December 24th, Alexa will tell us a different sentence, some very curious and fun.
Alexa impersonates Santa Claus
The little ones are sure to be happy to hear Alexa imitate Santa Claus. Of course, he does it with his usual voice, and we would have liked it to be a very normal voice for an old man with a big belly
And we can congratulate you on the new year, even though it won't be an exciting answer, actually.
Mother of all voice commands
Finally, and I have to admit that I locked it to the end because it is the best, we can ask Alexa for the number provided on the Christmas lottery.
- What will be the Oil this year.
Of course, all of these commands should be preceded by activation by the name Alexa, or the one you add to your Amazon Echo.
