We discuss and demo the Audible Clock skill for Alexa. If, like Kim, you’ve always wanted a Cuckoo clock, but haven’t gotten around to purchasing one, or if you deeply miss the sound of that beautiful Grandfather clock your aunt had, you’ll love this skill. Free and premium clocks are available. If you’d like an Alexa to use exclusively as your clock, we still have a few second generation Echo Dots available for purchase. Each will come with our eight and a half hour Echo tutorial. Act fast, though, because our stock is very limited, and once these Dots are gone, they’re gone.
Next, Chris takes us on a tour of his new [amazon text=Bissell Powerfresh Deluxe steam mop.&asin=B01G7CE334] Learn about its features and functions, how AIRA helped Chris to discover more about it, and listen to it steam Chris’s floor.
