Did you know Amazon’s Alexa can be a great addition to Date Night? And not just for playing music.
Alexa can be your own personal assistant helping you plan and execute date night without the worry of having an assistant in your home doing your date night.
All you have to do is go to Amazon, or try the app, and click Enable, and you should be able to use all the app below.
And, you get all this help for free! Here are 6 ways Amazon Alexa can help add to your date nights:
She’s Your Game Host
Did you know Alexa has tons of games you can play with her? We were shocked to see how many they actually have, and some that are fun for all ages. Here are some of our favorites…
Escape the Room
An Escape Room on Alexa?! Just say “Alexa, play the Game Escape the Room”, and you’ll be playing in no time. This one has several rooms you can play as well. Write down everything she is telling you, and use your brains to figure out how to help her escape.
After you’ve escaped those, try “Alexa, play the Game Escape the Airplane”. There you will find even more rooms to play.
For the Christmas season, try “Alexa, play the Game Christmas Escape”. This is a fun one for the whole family and is a bit easier we hear.
Would You Rather with Alexa
Looking for new disussions to have or topics to talk about? Play the game “Would You Rather” with Alexa.
Alexa will give you several would you rather questions and you can both answer them for yourselves. Definitely one to bring up lots of fun conversations.
Remember playing Freeze Dance as kids? Dance your heart out together until Alexa tells you to “Freeze!” You must stop in whatever position you are in and freeze there until she starts playing music again.
Guess My Name
Alexa has some really fun trivia games you can play, including “Guess My Name”. Alexa will give you clues about a person until you can guess who she’s talking about.
Board Game Answers
Having an at home board game date night and forget a rule? Ask Alexa! She’ll be able to tell you what the written rules are if you have any specific questions.
2. She’s Your Date Planner
Planning Dates after a while can get difficult. There’s the whole “I don’t know what do you want to do” conversation and then you have to decide what to eat. But, it’s Alexa to the rescue!
Not sure what you want to do tonight? Ask “Alexa, ask Date Ideas for a random date”. Then you can decide to do the date she suggests, or ask for another option.
Date Night Decision Maker
Similar to the Date Ideas, you can ask Alexa about a specific part of date night. Ask “Alexa, ask Date Night Decision Maker, what should we eat?” Or ask whats fun to do tonight.
3. She’s Your Sous-Chef
Decide to eat at home, but don’t know what to make? Alexa can tell you exactly what to make when you tell her your ingredients. She can also read you the recipe and answer all of your cooking questions while you two are busy cooking in the kitchen.
Staying in but not sure what you should cook for dinner?
Ask Alexa what you can make with 3 ingredients in your pantry and she’ll give you recipes!
4. She’s Your Personal Reader
Instead of one of you reading to the other, have Alexa do it. She can narrate or read your favorite kindle book or play your favorite podcast or audiobook.
Play Audiobooks and Read Kindle Books
Tired of watching TV and want to just snuggle up and enjoy a good book? Alexa can read your kindle book to you, or start an audiobook.
Find one you will both enjoy together, snuggle up, and enjoy listening with your eyes closed.
Listen to Podcasts
Alexa can do the same with podcasts. There are so many fun ideas for podcasts you can start listening to together. Sometimes even better than a TV Show.
5. She’s Your Personal Trainer
You don’t even need to head to the gym, Alexa is on it. She can tell you what workouts to do and how long to do them. You can even have her be your timer.
Want to get a little bit of a workout in before dinner? Ask Alexa to play the 7-Minute Workout, and she’ll tell you different things to do to get your heart pumping!
6. She’s Your DJ
Of course Alexa is best known for playing music. Play some sweet romantic music and enjoy dinner with your beau. Or play some dancing music and have fun dancing in the kitchen while making dinner!
Next date night at home, invite Alexa to join you! She’ll bring lots of fun to the date without having to worry about feeding another person!
