Nothing gives a holiday gathered like the right music, lighting and games and more.
During your Thanksgiving celebration, use Alexa to make your holiday more festive. Here are some tips.
Stream on Alexa
The key to the best music experience during a party is to use your favorite stream service in combination with your Alexa device.
Do not you already have one? Amazon Music currently offers three month service for $ .99 during the holiday season. If you're already loyal to Spotify, you can stream music from your Alexa-enabled speaker. Just recently, Alexa.
To link your music player to Alexa, go to the Alexa app menu and press Settings> ] Music and Media. Since scroll to the music service you want and follow the instructions on the screen
Now, when you want some music, say something, "Alexa, play Beyonce's new holiday song" or "Alexa , play my holiday playlist, "or" Alexa, play Thanksgiving music. "Once you've done the command, your device will find the song / say your favorite music player.
Pro Tips: Try "Alexa, Singing a Thanksgiving Song" for a laugh.
Get the lighting right
My youngest daughter thinks it's not a party if there is no creative lighting. Alexa can help with that.
If you haveyou can change the color of your lighting without linking or adding skills. To change the color, say something, "Alexa, make the lights blue." I suggest you go with a yellow tone to give the room a nice cozy feeling.
Do not forget that you can dampen almost all smart bulbs with Alexa. Just say, "Alexa, subdue the lights."
Get game updates
We always had the big game played in the background during Thanksgiving dinner at my grandmother, but it can undoubtedly be disturbing. You can use Alexa to keep everyone updated instead. Just ask, "Alexa, what is the point for the [team] game" or "Alexa, did [team] win?"
You can also ask her when some games start or end, or how your imagination team does.
Get your game on
There are dozens of fun games you can play with Alexa, such as Jeopardy, Deal or No Deal and Bingo. Check out our list offor any ideas.
Even if you want to play games in an old fashioned way, Alexa can help. Missing the dice from a game? Say, "Alexa, roll a die" or "Alexa, roll a 26-sided die." If you need to solve an argument, say, "Alexa, turn a coin".
Tell a story
If you do not play games, Alexa tells everyone a story. For a holiday history story, "Alexa, why do we celebrate Thanksgiving?"
If you are not against Christmas stories on Thanksgiving say, "Alexa, read a Christmas Carol." You can also get her to tell a mystery by saying, "Alexa, open the Radio Mystery Theater."
