Best Alexa Skills for Christmas
Starting off our list of the best Alexa Skills for Christmas, we have the Alexa Christmas Screensaver. You will get access to a beautiful video based slideshow through which you can showcase beautiful holiday imagery coupled with classical and seasonal music.
Note that the skill can only be used by Alexa enabled devices that come with a screen. The slideshow is about an hour long, but if you want it to pause or stop it, just say “Alexa, go Home.” This is something we recommend you keeping while you are relaxing, cooking, or engaged in other relaxing activities.
#2. Christmas Radio
Songs and music are an integral part of our culture as well as our lives. Artists have specifically created songs and music for the festive seasons. So tune in to all of those wonderful tracks using Alexa Christmas Radio. After you have enabled the skill, simply ask Alexa to “open Christmas Radio,” and you will have all your favorite holiday and Christmas songs at your disposal.
#3. Christmas Sounds
Don’t you wish that your life, like in the movies, would be complemented with a background tune or musical score? Whereas, all we get is simply ambient noise. But with Alexa Christmas Sounds, you can create a magical atmosphere by enabling some of your favorite jingles to start playing, as you and your family enjoy your time together.
To use the skill, you simply ask Alexa to “play Christmas Sound” and there you have your Christmas atmosphere. Also, if you find it to be distracting or want it to stop, simply ask it to “stop,” and that’s it.
Santa Claus has got his eyes on you. So it’s time to improve your karma with some random acts of kindness. The Alexa Christmas Kindness skill will daily suggest you on some kind acts that you could consider doing that day. After all, it’s Christmas, share the smile. All you need to do is say, “Alexa, open Christmas Kindness” and Alexa will give you some ideas.
Alexa Classical Christmas skill comes with some of your favorite classical tracks popular played during the holidays. From the staple – we wish you a Merry Christmas, to other tracks like Good King Wenceslas, or We Three Kings, you get them all.
Also, if you are playing any one of these tracks provided with the skill, then you can also control them with Alexa voice commands such as stop, pause, play or skip. It also remembers where you stopped the track, so the time you resume, it will start where you left off.
