The KISS-FM Alexa Skill Is Live!

Categories: 

What is a custom Alexa skill?

Amazon's voice service is called Alexa. Much like your phone has an "app", your Amazon devices (Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Tap, Echo Show, etc) have skills. Users interact with their Alexa enabled device via skills.
 
Skills can be "default" - meaning they come pre-enabled on your Alexa device, or they can be "custom". Custom skills are searchable in the Alexa Skills Store and offer a more robust feature set.​

Are custom Alexa skills free for Alexa users?

Yes, custom Alexa skills are free for users to enable and interact with on their Alexa-enabled devices.

How do I enable KISS-FM's custom Alexa skill?

To enable, you have three options:

  • ​Search Amazon.com/skill for the skill name & enable or click here
  • Open the Alexa companion app on your mobile device, search for the skill name & click enable
  • Say "Alexa, enable one oh three point seven kiss fm skill"

 

Once my skill is enabled, how do I use it?

Using a "wake-word", Alexa begins listening for your commands.  The wake word for the KISS-FM skill is:  “Alexa… Open one oh three point seven Kiss FM.

Skills have sets of features/abilities that you can access simply by asking. Until you are familiar with a skill's abilities, use Help or Options voice commands to hear what a skill can do. When you know what features are available, ask for your specific course of action.

Or say, "Alexa, ask one oh three seven Kiss FM..."

  • "To listen live"
  • "To play Riggs and Alley"
  • "For on demand"
  • "To resume"
  • "For options"

When playing audio, you can say:

  •  Alexa, pause

  •  Alexa, next

And navigate to the previous content by saying:
