Alexa Skill of the Week: Trivia Tester

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.

Alexa is available for Amazon devices Echo, Dot, Tap, Echo Show, Echo Look, Dash Wand, Fire tablets, and Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Edition TVs, but also on iOS, Android, and the web with Reverb.ai.

This week’s skill: Trivia Tester

Description: Trivia Tester is a tricky and fun question game! In a “family feud” style game, see if you can choose the most popular response.

Real world use: Family Feud is a fun game to watch, not just because of the hilarity onscreen, but it also because invites you to play along at home. It’s fun trying to guess the most popular answers yourself. And, that’s what Trivia Tester is – it’s a Family Feud clone. The skill currently sports almost 1,000 questions, each designed with the top answers for that category. Alexa will ask 5 questions during a round and while there’s no real reward for answering the questions, you do learn something and its fun to play with a group of people.

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