How can I use Neds Alexa

Alexa from Amazon makes your life easier, more meaningful, and more fun by letting your voice control your world. Alexa can help you get more out of the things you already love and discover new possibilities you’ve never imagined.

What is skill?

Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new skills. Skills are like apps that help you do more with Alexa. You can use them to play games, listen to podcasts, relax, meditate, order food, and more. There are tens of thousands of skills available in the Skills Store, many from popular providers you already know and love. Some are free while others require a purchase or subscription.

Where as Alexa feature is something Alexa is able to do from the moment you turn on your Alexa-enabled device. For example, Alexa can answer questions, give you the weather forecast, tell jokes, and so much more. Some features—like smart home control and voice/video calling—still require other compatible devices. A skill, on the other hand, is something you select from the Skills Store and enable on your device, just like adding apps to your smart phone or tablet.
