Amazon’s Alexa devices can play music, interact with smart devices in one’s home and answer any question, but one of the more overlooked activities for the Amazon Echo, Echo Show and Echo Dot is games.
Enter Zynga with “Word Pop,” a “Words With Friends” spin-off of sorts. The game is played exclusively on Alexa devices and challenges players to come up with as many words as possible from a six-letter bank. They spell out the word or say it and the correct responses are registered on screen. Players have to come up with as many as possible within 60 seconds. Players are judged on the number and length of the words they come up with.
To play the game, all players need to do is say: “Alexa, open Word Pop.” It’s available today.
