Amazon's Alexa speakers have grown immensely popular in the Indian market, thanks to their ginormous collection of third-party skills.
You can download skills for functions like ordering food, controlling lights or booking a cab from a library of more than 30,000 choices.
But today, instead of focusing on useful or handy skills, we're looking at the weirdest ones available.
Let's take a look.
We know how difficult it is for true Game of Thrones' fans to wait for the final season of the show to air.
This is why, here's an Alexa skill that runs a timer announcing the exact number of weeks, days, hours, and seconds you'll have to wait for the season 8 premiere.
So, whenever you need a GoT reminder, just call Alexa.
Unlike dogs, cats rarely listen to the call of their owner, even when it's play time.
However, what they do listen to is the opening sound from their food can.
This Alexa skill simulates that sound so that your pet can come out from hiding and rush towards you or to the kitchen in no time.
It's a decoy but a useful one!
If you're a Pokemon lover, you'd definitely love the Pikachu Talk skill.
Designed purely for entertainment purposes, this plugin gives Alexa smart speaker the voice of Pikachu.
So, once enabled, it will respond to your call in the typical 'Pika Pika' tone of Pikachu.
You'll hear all sorts Pikachu responses with different tones and pitches; it's both weird and fun at the same time.
With this skill, you can learn some witty one-liners to roast or give it back to your friends.
As the description puts it, Roast Master will choose "from many different insults, allowing the user to get a fresh insult virtually every time".
So, you trigger this skill, take some mildly offensive put-downs and get on with it.
4AFart does exactly what its name suggests, although without the odor!
So, with this tool, you can have the hilarity that ensues from a real fart without having to leave the room.
It can be downloaded and triggered with a single call to amuse everyone in the room, be it kids, adults, or even elders.
