Are You Ready For Some Football Scores – From Alexa?

Amazon Echo UnboxedHere’s another capability recently added to the Amazon Echo. You can now get  scores and schedules for both NCAA Division1-A Football and the NFL.

All you need to do is ask Alexa things like “what’s the score of the Michigan Wolverines football game”? Or “Alexa, when is the next University of Texas football game?”

You can also use the Amazon Echo for your barbecues or kickoff party. Just ask, “Alexa, play the Big Game Pump-up Jams Prime playlist.”

Alternately, you could say, “Alexa, play College Football Radio from Tunein.”

Here’s more of an article I found recently from Amazon about Alexa’s Crystal Ball.

“Do you want to know if your favorite team is going to win or need help deciding which quarterback to start on your Fantasy Football team? Get help from Crystal Ball, one of the early third-party Alexa skills. To get started, open the Alexa App and tap on ‘Skills’in the menu and then press ‘Enable’ for Crystal Ball.
