Coffee Club – on Amazon Alexa

Everyone wants their favorite tasty beverage made just the way they like it. Coffee Club is a new skill for Amazon Alexa that takes the guesswork out of your next coffee run!

With Coffee Club you can add your team members or coffee-loving friends to a Coffee Club – along with their drink preferences. When it’s time for a coffee run, just ask who’d like a coffee, then tell the skill who to include in this coffee shop trip. Coffee Club will send all the information you need to your Alexa app, so you can take it with you on your phone, or forward it to whoever is on coffee run duty.

This skill was one of the first ever to use Alexa Conversations (which was in Beta at the time). It’s one of two skills I created for the #AmazonAlexaConversationsChallenge run by Amazon and DevPost in September 2020.

You can find Coffee Club in Amazon.com U.S. Alexa skill store !

House Hunting with Alexa

If you’ve ever found yourself in a nice neighbourhood curious about what it would cost to live there, House Hunting is for you!

It’s a new Alexa skill that simply asks a few questions about what you’re looking for, and gives you a summary of current prices in the area. It works on any Alexa-enabled device, and if you use it on the go, you don’t even need to know what zip code you’re in – just ask House Hunting to search nearby.

This skill was one of the first to use Alexa Conversations, and was one of two that I created for the #AmazonAlexaConversationsChallenge run by Amazon and DevPost in September 2020.

House Hunting is now available in the U.S. Alexa skill store !

Let Alexa read you stories from Audible

Another Alexa skill that I worked on for Audible has just been published… introducing Audible Book Finder!

This is a new skill from Amazon’s Audible subsidiary that lets users simply say “Alexa, tell me a story”.

Alexa will either read you a short story from her own small collection (in her own voice), or you can choose a free short story from Audible in one of four categories (Mystery, Sci-fi, Horror or Kids).

These Audible stories are commissioned and curated by Audible for this skill and many are narrated by well-known celebrities, including Stephen Fry, Sir David Jason, Andrew Scott, Russell Tovey, Juliet Stevenson and Colin Salmon.

Give it a try – it’s free, and it works on any Alexa device. You can find it in the UK and US Alexa stores (links below).

Discover new Audiobooks you’ll Love

I’m thrilled to have worked with a great team creating Audible Book Finder!

This is a new skill from Amazon’s Audible subsidiary that gives Alexa users several ways to discover new content they’ll love from Audible’s massive collection of audiobooks.

Give it a try – it’s free, and it works on any Alexa device but even better on devices with a display, like Echo Show, Show 5 or Spot. You can find it in the Alexa store (links below).

Call Handler updated (August 2019)

This update adds a user guide, which is delivered by email. When you say “send me the user guide” the skill guides you to grant permissions to your email address and first name using a ‘permissions card’ it sends to your Alexa app. Once you’ve done that, just relaunch and ask for the user guide again. Also in this update are dedicated screen support for Echo Show 5, and some minor big fixes.
