Alexa Skills: Find Out What’s New to Watch on Streaming Services

Perfect Indigo is one of my favorite Alexa skill authors. I’m not exactly sure if the developer is male or female due to the registered developer handle, but he/she made one of my favorite fun skills called Trumpcaster. Trumpcaster is a weather report that is read by Donald Trump. Its not the real Donald Trump, but the voice is similar enough to be comical and each forecast includes some Trumpisms, making it worth repeating the forecast several times a day for fun.

I just noticed this week that Perfect Indigo also has produced some other valuable skills for Alexa. These additional skills can give you a summation of the new TV shows and movies that have been added to your favorite streaming service to give you a summation of new viewing options. The results returned include title, season, episode number, and description.

Here’s what’s currently available from Perfect Indigo:

 

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, in the Music app, but also on iOS, Android, and the web with Reverb.ai.
