10 Women On Amazon's Alexa Team Share Their Favorite Alexa Features

Amazon's Alexa is a woman of many talents. She can perform more than 90,000 skills (and counting) that go far beyond telling us what time it is. From the practical (need a reminder of your next doctor's appointment or where you parked your car?) to the cozy ("Alexa: It's movie night"), there's really nothing Alexa can't do to streamline your daily routine. Two personal favorites: "Alexa, play calming sounds" and "Alexa, play a song that I haven't heard in a while."
The options are literally endless — especially if you include the skill blueprints you can program yourself, tailored to your own personal routine — so it's easy to feel overwhelmed by indecision when it comes to optimizing your smart home device. And is there any better way to get to know the full spectrum of Alexa's capabilities than from the women who know her best? Ahead, ten women on Amazon's Alexa team share their favorite Alexa features — from bath-time help to grocery list-making.
