Amazon Echo now helps you plan a trip to the movies
Once again, Amazon has updated its Echo speaker with some new features, this time focused on going to the movies. You can ask Alexa about show times for a specific film, or just ask about information about that movie. You can also ask which movies are playing right now, or narrow it down with questions like "What romantic comedies are playing right now?"
Amazon has also highlighted some of Alexa's skills. Focus Word is a meditation aid, providing you with an inspirational word or phrase, which you can use as a point of focus. Conversation Starter gives you ideas for topics to break the ice.
You should also be sure to ask Alexa for NFL playoff predictions, and use Echo to keep up with game scores this weekend.
