Just say, “Alexa, open Guinness World Records!”
Sometimes it’s fun to hear crazy facts! I’ve definitely been enjoying hearing the world record of the day, courtesy of the Guinness World Records Alexa skill.
To start, say “Alexa, enable Guinness World Records.”
Then say “Alexa open Guinness World Records” any time you want to hear one. (Maybe you’ll find an inspiring world record to try to beat, like building the largest gingerbread house in the world!)
I learned a few days ago that the person to score the most goals in a single hockey game was Joe Malone in 1920—with 7! And the largest gingerbread village featured 1,251 different buildings. (That’s a lot of sugar and flour!)
Pro Tip #1
If you want to make this part of your daily routine, you can add it with just a few steps below:
- Open the Alexa app
- Tap “More” > “Routines”
- Tap “Add Action”
- Tap “Skills”
- Tap “Your Skills” (Be sure you’ve enabled it by saying “Alexa, enable Guinness world Records” — otherwise it won’t show up here!)
- Tap “Guinness Book of World Records,” then “Next”
Pro Tip #2
Want more fun facts? Just say “yes” when Alexa asks if you want another one.
