How do you use the Alexa Skill App?

How do you use the Alexa Skill App?
  • Hear fun facts about the Sims franchise?
  • Listen to music from the Sims?
  • Play trivia?
  • No thanks, not my cup of tea.
Personally I am finding the trivia quite fun even when I get the answers wrong :lol:

    I love the trivia questions.
    Never allow waiting to become a habit. Life is happening now.

    I've tried all three ways and kind of nice I can play the music while cooking or streaming or playing a game or I can dance with it. As someone who has a disability I really appreciate having a Sims feature to use even though inclusion in the main Sims 4 isn't there yet. Good way for my nephews to enjoy the Sims who are not quite old enough to play the game yet too and my niece might enjoy the music too when she visits. So pretty cool way to get the next generations of Simmers into the franchise.

    Everyone is a Simmer.

    Just an FYI this works with the Garmin Speak with Alexa. I played Trivia while driving.

    I almost forget I even have an Echo Dot speaker and the app on my phone so I might also eventually forget you can do Sims stuff on it in time.

    On your phone's app store. Look for Amazon Alexa.

    At least the phone app seems to not "listen" unless activated. :wink:

    I am so glad you are using it in the car. We constantly use Alexa to play songs for my kid in the car. All she wants to hear these days is "Baby Shark"!

    My nephew loves that song. He has a little bit of trouble with his communication skills, but he can say Alexa play Baby Shark as clear as day. I am just happy that music is a nice way for him to communicate with his autism, so I really appreciate having a feature like this for him to enjoy, so thank you. He loves to sing, it is adorable.

    I wonder what would happen if you go to the center of a Busy Mall and yell out to your run-away toddler named Alexa, ALEXA! come here. hahaha.

    I can’t use it. I have Alexa on Spanish and she doesn’t understand when I say it on English or I say a translation. Great...
