What is a custom Alexa skill?

  • Amazon's voice service is called Alexa. Much like your phone has an "app", your Amazon devices (Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Tap, Echo Show, etc) have skills. Users interact with their Alexa enabled device via skills.
     
  • Skills can be "default" - meaning they come pre-enabled on your Alexa device, or they can be "custom". Custom skills are searchable in the Alexa Skills Store and offer a more robust feature set.

Are custom Alexa skills free for Alexa users?

  • Yes, custom Alexa skills are free for users to enable and interact with on their Alexa-enabled devices.


How do I enable 106.5 The End's custom Alexa skill?

To enable, you have three options:​​​

  • Search Amazon.com/skills for the skill name & enable (insert the 106.5 The End link)
  • Open the Alexa companion app on your mobile device, search for the skill name & click enable
  • Say "Alexa, enable the 106.5 The End skill"

 

Once my skill is enabled, how do I use it?

Using a "wake-word", Alexa begins listening for your commands.  The wake word for 106.5 The End skill is:  “Alexa… Open 106.5 The End.”

 

If you say “Alexa…Play 106.5 The End”, you will likely open the TuneIn app so you can listen live.  If you want the skill to open, giving you access to podcasts and more, saying “Alexa, Open 106.5 The End” works best.

 

Skills have sets of features/abilities that you can access simply by asking. Until you are familiar with a skill's abilities, use Help or Options voice commands to hear what a skill can do. When you know what features are available, ask for your specific course of action.

Alexa…Open 106.5 The End and listen live
Alexa…Open 106.5 The End and listen to The Wake up Call

 

How do I skip to the next episode of a podcast? Simply say:  “Alexa…Next”
