What's with this Alexa thing?

What is with this Alexa thing? Is this being added to the game or is it something that Amazon wants us to buy?

    From what I can tell, its simply an app for alexa enabled devices to play with. Its a simlish dictionary and some stuff like trivia.
    Ask for help! Even if you only get comfort and commiseration, that's better than always wondering if anyone cares.

    It appears to be an application for the Amazon Alexa devices. From what I’ve seen, you can get the Alexa app on your phone even if you don’t have an Alexa and get the app through there. I hope I explained it okay!

    Thanks. It's not an addition to the game and since I don't have any Alexa devices it's nothing for me to worry about.

    It also plays sims music. Someone said it had like 7 hours of music from the entire series. It’s also free, the app and the sims skill. It’s nothing to do with the game but it’s pretty cool. Fun little side project from one of the devs.

    The Developers decided to add it as a way to honor the new Lind Z smart speaker in the game although this is for your Amazon Echos and Alexa App not an in game feature.

    It's missing some music from Sims 4 Packs and buy build cas but they said they might add that later.

    Well they can if you place the Lin Z Smart Speaker.
