Most Popular Games on Alexa

Find out which games are the most popular on Amazon’s voice-activated assistant, Alexa in this article.

For many people, playing games is a primary form of entertainment, whether on their mobile devices or on the couch with friends.

The popularity of video games has grown dramatically in recent years due to their increasingly sophisticated graphics and gameplay capabilities and their portability and low-cost relative to traditional sports like basketball or football. As a result, the average person has come to spend more time playing these digital games than watching movies or listening to music.

Combine the thrill of video games with the novelty of voice assistants, and you have a recipe for fun! In fact, there is a large number of games designed for Alexa and Google Assistant (Google Home) that are available for free.

Here are the top 5 most popular games on Alexa right now.

1. Blackjack (Beat The Dealer)


You may also play Blackjack with Alexa! To enable and open it, just say, “Alexa, open The Dealer.” The virtual dealer will offer you a hand, and Alexa will speak your cards and one of the dealer’s cards. It will ask you if you want to hit or stand.

It’s your choice if you keep playing by saying ‘hit’ or standing on what you have. The dealer will keep hitting and try to beat your number by getting as close to a total of 21, who will win? You’ll find out!

2. Song Quiz

Alexa song quiz allows you to listen to around 4,000 songs from the last 10 years, the game is to guess the correct title and artist.

To begin playing the guessing game, just speak to the digital assistant and say, “Alexa, open Song Quiz.” You can then choose a playlist for the 1960s, ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s, 2000s, or 2010s.

This is a great game for all of the family and will be a good hit with adults as well as kids.

3. Kids Quiz

Riddle and quiz games are popular among Alexa users, particularly because of their ease of development and facilitate voice-based play on a device. Kids Quiz is designed to be played by children aged 5 to 12.

This is a great game for kids to test their trivia knowledge and get their brains working. Questions arrive daily, so the game should keep children entertained for a long time, especially if you make it part of your daily routine.

4. Wraith: The Oblivion – The Orpheus Device

Based on White Wolf Publishing’s classic Vampire: The Masquerade, Wraith: The Oblivion – The Orpheus Device focuses on ghosts and the shackles linking them to the mortal plane. The game revolves around the Martens, whose spirits are still haunting their old home as you play. You learn more about each member, which may help you save them.

Wraith does not shy away from violence, death, and alcoholism themes. The multiplayer choose-your-own-adventure has an older target audience, and as such, this is not a game for those under 18s.

5. Earplay

Have you ever wanted to be a secret agent? Now you can be with Earplay, the choose-your-own-adventure style game you can pay for with your Alexa smart speaker.

To play, use your smartphone and navigate to the Alexa Skills menu, you can then search for Earplay and get going. Most of the content on Earplay is suitable for all audiences, but there may be some that is unsuitable for kids.

Why Play Games On An Alexa Speaker?

Alexa smart speakers are hugely popular with Alexa users, and a wide range of games are available for the device, including free ones.

Games on Alexa are easy to set up, they can be played anywhere with only the speaker to hand, and they are easy to use whether you are sitting on the sofa or standing in front of a mirror.

The majority of your skills will work with any Alexa-enabled device, including Amazon Echo, smartwatches and dashboards, along with Google Assistant and Siri devices.

Alexa Skills

Launched in November 2017, Alexa skills are the smart speaker equivalent of apps. Like on your smartphone, you can get them from the Amazon app store.

To find the skill you want, go on the Alexa app, select skills, and search for it name. As usual with Alexa, she will tell you what it does and guide you through the installation process if needed.

There are now thousands of Alexa skills available to download, and new ones are constantly being added. In fact, there is a skill for almost everything under the sun! The skill library on Amazon is constantly growing as more developers come up with fresh ideas for games and other services to offer.

Some skills are free, but some may require payment before playing them (especially those with in-app purchases). That way, developers can make money off their work.

How Far Will Gaming on Smart Speakers Go?

It is likely that gaming on smart speakers will become more popular over time. It is a good way to introduce younger people to gaming and give them the skills they need to play online games.

The internet connection to smart speakers is usually good enough for gamers; if not, manufacturers will only have to upgrade their hardware as the demand rises.

We may even see “gaming” versions of Alexa or Google Home released with extra hardware built in for an enhanced experience. However, this could damage smartphone game developers who rely so heavily on these devices for their business model.


Voice assistants are not going anywhere. With the rise of Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri and even Microsoft Cortana, voice-activated smart speakers are becoming more popular than ever before.

Advertisers are seeing the benefit of voice search, and voice-activated devices will surely be top of the Christmas charts this year.

The future of smart speakers looks bright, especially due to the great selection of free Alexa skills available. While gaming on Alexa is not as advanced as it is on smartphones, we may see steps forward in this department in the next few years.

There are countless skills available that can be installed on the devices, including games. If you are looking for something fun to do, it is worth checking out these new skills. You might find that they enhance your Alexa experience no end!
