Alexa can help you maximise family-fun time with some fun games.

To have a crazy family game time with Alexa just say "Alexa, open Akinator", "Alexa, play impossible bollywood quiz", "Alexa, open Number Guessing Game" or "Alexa, play true or false".

In the social distancing times, Alexa can be your daily gyan guru by teaching you a new fact every day.

Regular exercise is essential for supporting healthy immune function, preventing weight gain, boosting your mood and keeping you as healthy as possible at home.

Alexa can also help you stay fit. Just ask "Alexa, play Bollywood workout playlist", "Alexa, help me do yoga", "Alexa, open Daily Stretch" or "Alexa, start five minute plank".

"Alexa can help if you are having a stressful time. With the Headspace Alexa skill, you can build a daily meditation practice, create the conditions for a better night's sleep, or go on guided walks and runs," according to the company.
