Episode 1 Season 2: Alexa, can you hear me?

Alexa Voice Commands

In this Episode:

Alexa lands at Roy’s house and they mostly get along. Adventures in Voice Assistants (Siri, Alexa, Google Now, Google Home), Virtual Assistants, and trying to get them to tell you what you really want to hear or know. Plus we learn Amazon’s Alexa makes a great DJ if you are in the mood for Heavy Metal Christmas, Heavy Metal Classical Music, or the Chris Tomlin station. Actually you find she is really good at all things music. Quite fun there. Be sure to listen to the end for the “Moment of Zen”.
