So you bought a new Alexa device and you’re wondering if you can play games with other Alexa users. It would be pretty cool to play a multi-player game with a friend in another home.
To be clear, what we’re looking for is not a single-player or party Alexa game. We want a game that can be played over the internet with other Alexa users. Since there are so many Alexa devices out there, it kind of makes sense to want to play games together.
Does such a game exist? Let’s find out.
Can You Play Games with Other Alexa Users?
At the moment, the only games you can play with other Alexa users are trivia games such as Brain Games and Music Trivia. There isn’t much to choose from, but that will likely change in the near future.
As mentioned above, most Alexa games are single-player or for parties, meaning the other players have to be physically present in the same room.
Unfortunately, there are only a handful of online multiplayer Alexa games, and most of them aren’t designed very well and have clunky commands. I haven’t found any noteworthy multiplayer Alexa games.
Speaking of Amazon, are you think about buying a Kindle?
How to Find Alexa Games:
Since Alexa devices don’t have a screen (basically smart speakers) you will need to install the games from a separate device and send them over.
The easiest way to do that is to head on over to Amazon’s Alexa Skills & Games section and browse through the list. When you find something that catches your attention, download it, send it to your Alexa device, and it should automatically install.
Even though there aren’t many games you can play with other Alexa users, some single-player games can be entertaining or at least a way to flex your brain muscles. Do remember that pretty much all these games are based on voice commands. Take a look at the highest-rated Alexa games here.
Here are some that might interest you:
Single Player Alexa Games:
- Song Quiz
- Escape Room
- Guess the Song
- Choose Your Own Story
- Animal Games
- And many others.
Alexa Party Games:
- Never Have I Ever
- Would You Rather
- And others.
Best Amazon Device for Alexa?
By now you probably know there are loads of Amazon devices that work with Alexa.
Echo Dot Series
I personally like the Echo Dot series, the latest one is Echo Dot 4th Gen but the 3rd Gen is significantly cheaper. I think Echo Dot is the best device for Alexa because it’s not too expensive and the audio quality is great.
I will update this article when Amazon adds some games that you can play with other Alexa users but as of today, the selection is very limited. Alexa can be fun to play around with when you’re home alone, and some of the games like Escape Room are pretty interesting but unfortunately not possible to play with other users.
Have you found any games that you can play with other Alexa users?
