Asking Alexa for the weather forecast provides a wealth of information – but at times can be just a bit too much. For example, we had a flash flood warning in this area recently and every time we would ask Alexa for information about the weather, she would rattle off the local weather warning first, followed by the forecast, and somewhere in the midst of the data dump we would finally get the outside temperature supplied. Alexa’s weather services are great and useful, but sometimes you just want to know how to dress or if its warm enough to go outside for a run.
A new Alexa skill aptly called, Just The Temperature, cuts to the chase when all you want to know is how warm or how cold it is outside. Simple and to the point.
Examples of things you can say…
“Alexa, ask just the temperature what the current temperature is”
“Alexa, ask just the temperature what the temperature outside is”
