A better question is, “What can’t she do?”
Alexa’s got skills!
Remember that developers are constantly creating new skills for Alexa. It’s sort of the equivalent of apps that Alexa can use, only much more user-friendly. Well, with each new skill that is created, Alexa can do something else.
There are now literally thousands of things that Alexa can do. Some of the most common skills include music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, playing audiobooks, telling jokes, playing games, controlling your home, and providing weather, traffic, and other real time information, such as the news, but it doesn’t stop there.
How about ordering a pizza for you? Or maybe providing a soundtrack for a book that you are reading aloud? What about reciting a recipe to you while you are cooking?
