Here’s a cool idea for an Alexa skill.
I used to do web development pretty regularly. Not was much now as I used to, but I remember one of the bigger pains was always keeping a reference handy to look up hex color segments. The colors you see on the screen all relate back to a hex value in the code. There are a number of resources on the web for this so developers don’t have to memorize a bundle of hex numbers just to architect the colors on a web page, but still wouldn’t it be easier by just asking someone for a particular hex color value?
Now you can with the Hex Colors skill for Alexa. For starters the skill is pretty minimal and only supplies some basic colors, but I can see where this will eventually deliver any color you need just by asking.
What’s currently available:
What you can say…
“Alexa, ask Hex Colors what is the value of red?”
“Alexa, ask Hex Colors to translate the color orange to a hex value?”
“Alexa, ask Hex Colors, can you give me the hex value of blue?”
Where to get it: You can locate the Hex Colors Skill in the Amazon Alexa app, enable it using your voice, or use the following web link: Hex Colors
