Alexa Skills: Play a Full Game of Poker

This latest AutoPoker skill is a wonderful example of inventive and ingenious uses of Alexa.

Essentially, after enabling AutoPoker and using your smartphone to access to the web site, your Alexa device becomes the card dealer. You use your voice to ask Alexa for cards, provide your bet, call, etc. – just like a real poker game. The actual cards you use are shown on your smartphone from the mobile site. To fully use this skill, you’ll need at least 2 players, each with their own smartphone or tablet. And, each time you start a new game, Alexa gives you a “room code” that you enter on the web site. This is how the site knows the players participating in your game.

The skill is in early stages, but still well worth a try.

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

Alexa is available for Amazon devices Echo, Dot, Tap, Echo Show, Echo Look, Fire tablets, and Fire TV, but also on iOS, Android, and the web with
