Tips on Komando Alexa skills

Here are a few quick tips when navigating our skills. First thing to note, when opening the skill you’ll be offered the latest episode, but if that’s not what you’re looking for, you can always find something more specific.

Our skills allow you to skip forward and backward by entire episodes, and you can also fast forward and rewind within episodes themselves. In addition, you can ask the skill to play the newest or oldest episodes released; or if you want to get specific, play a specific episode by saying the episode number.

Try some of these commands:

**Skip Entire Episodes**
— [While Episode Is Playing] = “Alexa skip” or “Alexa tell Komando on Demand to skip ahead 5 episodes”

**Fast Forward/Back Within Episode**
— [While Episode Is Playing] = “Alexa, tell Consumer Tech Update to fast forward 2 minutes”
— [While Episode Is Playing] = “Alexa, tell Consumer Tech Update to rewind 45 seconds”

**Select Newest Episode**
— “Alexa, tell Komando on Demand to play the newest episode”

Refresher: How to enable Amazon Skills

  1. Open your Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet, tap the menu icon (the three horizontal lines in the upper left corner) then tap Skills.
  2. Here, you can browse or search for the skills you may want to use.
  3. Tap on the desired skill, then tap "Enable." That's it!

Note: Some skills can also be activated via voice command. Simply say "Alexa enable" followed by the skill name and Alexa will enable that skill automatically.

21 CLEVER ALEXA COMMANDS YOU WILL USE AGAIN AND AGAIN

More than any other device, Alexa has become our closest approximation of artificial intelligence. She has a voice and personality, and if you ask the right question, she’ll even get sassy with you. Users even refer to Alexa as “she.” We usually prefer to say her name, rather than the name of the device itself, Amazon Echo. For many owners, Alexa is more than a mere virtual assistant; she has become something like a domestic companion, a Rosie or R2-D2 that can also order takeout.
