I just received an email from Amazon with new Echo commans:

Game night!
—We saw how much you enjoyed Simon Says, so here are a few new ways you can use Echo to keep the games going:

  • Decide who goes first by asking "Alexa, flip a coin."
  • Settle an in-game debate with "Alexa, rock, paper, scissors."
  • And, in case things get really out of hand and pieces go flying, you can keep playing with "Alexa, roll the dice."
Dr. Seuss's Birthday—Celebrate the author's big day by trying these questions:

  • "Alexa, do you like green eggs and ham?"
  • "Alexa, one fish, two fish."
  • "Alexa, why do you sit there like that?"
  • "Alexa, what was the Lorax?"
Software Development Kit Beta—For those who want to help shape Echo's future, the team is working on an SDK to help hobbyist and enthusiast developers create new apps and experiences. If you're interested in building your ideas during a limited-participation beta ahead of the SDK's public release, sign up here.

As always, the Amazon Echo team looks forward to your feedback via the Amazon Echo App, and be sure to tag your social media posts with #AmazonEcho!
