The Best Alexa Skills for the New Year

  • Name

We're going to round-up the best skills to use for the New Year. These include countdowns for your new year's party, help with your resolutions, and some fun ones to use during the party.

New Year Countdown

This is the perfect skill for people that want to have an ecstatic countdown from 10. Use it just before midnight and countdown with a large group of people.

Hue - By Philips Hue

This is a great skill for those looking to entertain for New Year's Eve. Get all of your lights connected and have Alexa control them. Set up scenes for the party, the countdown, and for relaxation afterward.

Bonfire Party - Drinking Game

Yes, you can play drinking games with Alexa too. This game needs 3 players and serves different content with each round/card. It gives you plenty of time to interact between rounds. If you have a ton of people at your party this may not be the best choice.

Mindful Meditation

Everyone should meditate, and this skill gives you options from a quick 3-minute breath meditation to full 20-minute meditation with a focus on bodily sensations, sounds, breathing and more. Start your New Year off right and start meditating. You'll not regret it.

My Workouts

Yes, I know. Everyone wants to get in better shape for the new year. Don't go at it alone, let Alexa help you with your goals. This skill will walk you through the first few exercises and tell you how to perform each one. It can also track your weight and other metrics and give you progress.
