Amazon Alexa is a great way to interact with your Trakt calendar hands free. All VIP members have access to our new Alexa Skill which connects to your personal TV and movie calendars. Trakt automatically knows what you’re watching and uses this info along with your watchlisted items to create your calendars. The Trakt Alexa skill will work with the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Tap models — check them out here.
Note: The skill is only available in the US & UK.
What can I ask Alexa?
Start each command with “Alexa, ask Trakt tv” then any of these questions:
|What's on TV today?|
What's on Sunday?
What's premiering this week?
What's in theaters this week?
There are lots of cool ideas we have in mind for the Alexa skill to expand beyond your calendars. Questions like what’s on deck?, what’s trending in television right now? and what comedy should I watch? are just a few ideas we have in mind. Stay tuned!
