There are useful skills and then there are skills that you find useful. A recent skill takes Alexa capability in a different direction. Instead of responding with the spoken word like a normal skill, Alexa responds simply through light pulses that light your path down a darkened hallway or across a pitch black room. And, the light level emitted is low enough to not bother anyone else.
The light will display until you tell it to stop, or you can evoke the skill with a timer if you want, too. Tell Alexa to “open Night Light for 5 minutes.”
Alexa is available for Amazon devices Echo, Echo 2, Dot, Tap, Echo Spot, Echo Plus, Echo Show, Echo Look, Echo Connect, 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.
