Although it may seem like a joke, Amazon’s intelligent assistant is a true connoisseur of the beautiful game. He knows the result of the matches, he knows who which teams face each week and he can even take an exam so you know how much of a football fan you are. If you would like to discover everything Alexa knows about soccer and how it can help you, keep reading because in this article we will tell you everything.
Alexa helps you with your daily tasks
Maybe if you have not inquired too much about the possibilities and functions of this intelligent assistant you have certain doubts. The truth is that Alexa is worth much more than just playing music or asking about the weather.
This assistant is integrated into Amazon smart speakers and other equipment such as some Smart TV models, headphones and other speakers, for example. To invoke it, we will only have to say aloud “Alexa” followed by our request.
Some of the main functions that we can do with Alexa are:
- Interact with home automation equipment that we have at home. For example, we could turn on and set aside bulbs, the same for our television if it incorporates Alexa or we have an Amazon connected or even send the vacuum cleaner to clean the house.
- Control our schedule. We can ask Alexa to add appointments or reminders that we need to remember. Then, of course, we can ask him about them or, also, ask him what we have on the agenda for that day.
- Help you make decisions. We have the possibility of asking the assistant to tell us a random number between a range or to toss a coin to choose between heads or tails.
What is the best smart speaker with Alexa? Does everyone allow us to perform the same functions? These two are good questions to consider. The functionalities are the same in almost all the models, since the only differences will be in those actions that require a screen. These are focused on the Amazon Echo Show or the Fire TV Cube.
However, there are no good or bad models as such, each one is focused on different types of user. If you are interested and want to know what it is like to live with Alexa, here is a video in which we tell you about our experience.
Everything Alexa knows and can tell us about soccer
Now that you know a little more about the possibilities that this intelligent assistant can offer us, it is time to move on to what is truly important in this article: how much does Alexa know about soccer.
The best thing that this assistant knows so much is that we can ask him a lot of information related to the beautiful game.
We already talked to you about this recently in another article on our website. Alexa hides a series of hidden modes that we can activate through a voice command.
In the case of soccer mode, it will be as simple as saying out loud “Alexa, activate soccer mode . ” To this, the assistant will tell us that it is not so simple, and that we will have to correctly answer 2 of the 4 questions that it has prepared for us. Do not think that it will always do the same to us, at all. The list is quite broad and diverse in nature, although they all have football as a common link.
If you pass this test, Alexa will start saying typical phrases in the style of a football commentator.
Alexa and the commands of the Eurocup
With the well-known European football championship just around the corner, Amazon’s smart assistant is ready to give us all the information we need about it with these commands:
- “Alexa, remind me of the match in Spain.” This will cause the assistant to create a reminder on your calendar with the next match you play in the championship.
- “Alexa, who is playing in the European Football Championship today?”
- “Alexa, how was the party in Spain?” If you missed any of the meetings, you can ask Alexa to find out the result.
- “Alexa, what happened at the European Football Championship?” With this command the wizard will give us a summary of all the important data.
- “Alexa, who is going to win the European Soccer Championship?” As a curious fact, Alexa will be able to make a prediction of who she thinks will win.
- “Alexa, open the quiz for the European Soccer Championship.” A trivia game about the Eurocup.
- “Alexa applauds the National Team.”
- “Alexa, sing a goal”
- “Alexa, tell me a joke about football / about the national team”
- “Alexa, sing the soccer song.”
Check this week’s matches
If you are not very clear about the upcoming meetings, you can ask Amazon’s smart assistant.
You just have to say out loud “Alexa, what games are there this week” , ask her about a specific team “Alexa, who is Cádiz playing this week” or check directly for a specific day “Alexa, what football games are there today”.
Historical football data
Among many different questions, we can ask this assistant for historical information related to this sport. An example of this could be:
- Alexa, who won the last World Cup?
- Alexa, who is the best gamer ever?
- Alexa, which team won the first soccer World Cup in history?
- Alexa, who won the Ballon d’Or in 2020?
These are just some of the things you can check with Alexa. From here, you just need to try different questions for which you will surely have an answer.
Information on sports scores
More interesting things that Alexa can help us with is giving us information about sports results of soccer games .
We can ask, for example: “Alexa, in what position is Cadiz CF”, “Alexa, when does Real Madrid play” or “Alexa, what was the result of Sevilla”.
Even if we register which is our favorite team or teams (which we usually consult their result regularly ”, we could say to the assistant“ Alexa, tell me my sports information ”.
Fun facts football fans
Finally, and as the most striking details, we can look for the tickle to the Amazon assistant.
For example, we can ask you for your preferences “Alexa, what is your favorite team? To this, at least at the moment, she responds that she likes Rayo Vallecano.
Or also, we can ask you to tell us some curious information about this sport. We just have to say “Alexa, tell me a story about soccer . ” Here the list is quite large and you can surprise us with data on the first mascot that a team had, which is the oldest state in Spain, the team that has been active in the league for the longest years or, for example, information about the Euro Cups, worldwide and much more.
These are the best soccer-related questions you can ask Amazon’s smart assistant. As we have already mentioned on other occasions, the list of Alexa functionalities grows day by day, so it would not surprise us (and more considering how close the Eurocup is this year) that the possibilities of this subject are expanded more sooner rather than later. We also want to remind you that, if you want to continue discovering interesting things that you can do with Alexa, do not miss any of the articles that we publish on our website.
