Alexa Skill of the Week: Note Pad

Alexa Skill of the Week: Note Pad

Each week, we take a look at new and important Alexa skills you might want to consider enabling for your Alexa device. Amazon continues to improve Alexa with its own updates, but skills are software components that allow Alexa users to extend functionality across all Alexa-enabled devices in use for very specific functions.

This week’s skill: Note Pad

Description: The Notes skill lets you dictate a note to Alexa, to be stored and read aloud at a later date.

Real world use: Turning Alexa into a full-fledged dictation assistant has a lot of value, particularly when there’s certain pieces of information you’d like to store until later. This new skill allows you to do that. It gives Alexa the ability to record brief voice notes for you and later recall and read them back.

Examples of things to say….

“Alexa, ask note pad to write a note”
“Alexa, ask note pad to read my notes”
“Alexa, ask note pad to take note”

There’s also a premium version of this skill that allows you to save notes indefinitely, otherwise each note is deleted once its read back.

Where to get it: You can locate the Note Pad Skill in the Amazon Alexa app, enable it using your voice, or use the following web link: Note Pad
