You had these days when you had absolutely no plans and you went crazy ̵
The Alexa voice assistant offers countless activities that keep you entertained, such as quizzes and even an escape room – you can play both yourself.
And if you have friends and are still bored, you can do anything on this list with them. All you have to do to get started is to enable these skills in the Alexa app.
Plan your escape
You already feel at home. So why not be fun andto get rid of hell? You have to activate the Escape the Room skill in the Alexa app to get started. When you're ready to play, say, "Alexa, open Escape the Room."
You can choose between five different scenarios: prison cell, office, car, plane or garage. The goal is to escape. You get puzzles that you have to solve to leave the room. In the game you have to look in all directions, examine objects for clues and use objects in the house.
Alexa, I'm bored
Can't you think of anything? Just say the sentence you used to say to your parents when you were young: "Alexa, I'm bored." And that's all you have to say to Alexa when you're ready for the bot to leave those boring thoughts behind. Simply activate the I & # 39; m Bored skill in the Alexa app on your phone to get started. This is Settings > Skills & Games > Search for I am bored > Tap Check .
As soon as you tell Alexa about it, if you get bored, you will get an answer with a funny fact. The intent is to find something so interesting for you that you spend a little more time researching the topic and forget that you are bored. Because the more interests you have, the more likely that you will always have something to do.
Play a quiz game – yes, you can play alone.
Alexa is known for many things, such as controlling smart home devices.
, but sometimes your assistant friend just wants to have fun.
Listen to a mysterious story.
Are you missing a secret in your life? Test the CBS Radio Mystery Theater skill in the Alexa app. It's an old-time radio show that gives your monotonous day a juicy drama. When you're ready to hear a story, say, "Alexa, open Radio Mystery Theater." If you're not interested in the puzzle, say "Alexa, next" to get to the next story.
Disclosure: CBS is the parent company of CNET.
Every time you get bored, do a situp
If you just sit on the couch and have no plans, you can also train. This will make you feel better and may give you some motivation to do something fun. The Amazon Alexa app offers loads of different fitness skills, but we like thebest.
Once you have activated the skill that you like the most, you can continue your training. Just say something like "Alexa, start 7 minute workout" or "Alexa, ask the fitness guru to give me an upper body exercise." Imagine how tight your arms would look if you exercised quickly every time you said you were bored!
