Alexa Easter Eggs - 200 Fun Questions To Ask Alexa

200 fun questions to ask Alexa

What is Alexa

Alexa is Jarvis

When I saw Iron Man in 2008, the coolest thing that jumped right out was Jarvis, or J.A.R.V.I.S (Just A Rather Very Intelligent System), to be more precise. More than the Iron Man suit, I wanted to have an Intelligent System at home that took care of all my mundane work for me while I chilled. We're not quite there yet but Alexa's probably the closest thing we have to J.A.R.V.I.S right now.

Alexa is an intelligent personal assistant, modeled after the computer conversational system on board the starship Enterprise in Star Trek. It seems like Alexa's been around forever but it was actually only introduced to the world when Amazon launched the Amazon Echo in November 2014.

Now, Alexa's capable of many tasks - setting alarms, music playback, to-do lists, playing audio books and even providing real-time information like traffic and the weather. But if you ask me, the best thing about Alexa is the voice interaction.

What are Easter Eggs

In Tech parlance, Easter eggs are hidden messages or jokes left in a computer program or video game by the programmers for users to find. It's very much like an Easter egg hunt in real life.

The programmers behind Alexa are no different and from the looks of it, know how to have a bit of fun. Here are 200 fun questions you can ask your Alexa voice assistant devices like the Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Dot.

Anything to add?

While these fun questions aren't as useful as traditional Alexa commands, they're what makes owning an Alexa great. Whether its sci-fi or pop culture that ability to play along is part of the charm and what set's it apart from other home intelligent personal assistants. 

This list is by no means complete and it seems that Amazon is adding new ones each day. Gotta keep up with the times, eh? Some questions also have multiple answers, so try asking Alexa again and she might surprise you with a different answer. 

Are there any new ones or ones we've missed? Let us know!
