Amazon Echo now able to recap National Convention results and more

by John_A

Amazon is back with another set of new features for the Echo, this time bringing more political information to the smart speaker and some Hamilton related features. With the National Conventions rapidly approaching, the Echo will now be able to keep you up to date with poll data and tap into daily politics brief. You’ll be able to ask questions like “Alexa, ask WaPo Elections for the polls” or “Alexa, ask WaPo Elections for the Politics Brief” to find out more about what is going on.


In addition, the Echo can now tell you some new political jokes and play the music from the ultra-popular Hamilton musical. All you need to do is say “Alexa, tell me a political joke” or “Alexa, play Hamilton from Prime” and then sit back and enjoy. You can enable all of these new features under the Skills section of the Alexa app. If you don’t already own an Echo you can grab one from Amazon now to take advantage of these features and the hundreds of others.
