“Alexa, Play SPORCLE”
Introducing the Sporcle skill for your Amazon Echo.
Test your trivia knowledge with thousands of questions across hundreds of categories from Sporcle, the #1 trivia site on the internet. Why enable other Alexa skills for Seinfeld, ‘80s movies, or Harry Potter when the Sporcle skill can handle all your trivia needs? We add new questions weekly so you can play Sporcle for hours at a time. Don’t you deserve only the best in Alexa skills for trivia?
The Sporcle skill is easy to use and offers you a choice of categories to get going. If you want a new set of categories, just say ‘New Category’ or you can even choose a specific category (see the list below).
OK, but tell me again, what is an Amazon Echo?
In case you have been living in the cave for the last year, Amazon’s Alexa is the voice-controlled digital assistant that powers the Amazon Echo and other related Echo devices. What makes this handy smart home novelty even more robust is that you can enable extra features and games to your Amazon Echo by enabling ‘Alexa Skills’. Skills are little Amazon apps that expand the power of Alexa and perform certain tasks.
Sounds life changing, how do I get started?
- You need an Echo device from Amazon to play. You can buy one from Amazon if you don’t already have one.
- Once you have an Echo, just open the Alexa companion app that is used to set up the Echo device. Click on Skills and search for “Sporcle”.
- Enable the Sporcle skill – don’t worry, it’s free.
- Say to the device “Alexa, Play Sporcle!”.
- Repeat daily.
NOTE: If you have feedback, questions, or issues please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear what you think of the Sporcle skill.
