WHAT IS AN 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, Echo Input, 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 THE CUSTOM ALEXA SKILL FOR KYKX 105.7?
To enable, you have three ways to enable the KYKX 105.7 skill:
- Search Amazon.com/skills for K Y K X ONE OH FIVE SEVEN skills and enable
- Open the Alexa companion app on your mobile device, search for the K Y K X ONE OH FIVE SEVEN skill and click enable.
- Say “Alexa, enable K Y K X ONE OH FIVE SEVEN skill”
ONCE MY SKILL IS ENABLED, HOW DO I USE IT?
- Simply say “Alexa, launch K Y K X ONE OH FIVE SEVEN”
- If you say “Alexa, play K Y K X ONE OH FIVE SEVEN”, you will likely open the TuneIn skill. If you want the KYKX 105.7 skill to open, giving you access to the live stream and more, make sure to say “Alexa, launch K Y K X ONE OH FIVE SEVEN”.
- 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.
