Alexa is all set for Canada Day with its new ‘Patriotic’ skill set

By Twinkle Ghosh

Whenever there’s an event or a hallmark holiday, Amazon is known to add more themed skills to its Alexa smart assistant. This time around, the digital assistant has set its eye on Canada Day, aiming to come equipped with some patriotic skills.

If you greet the assistant with a “Happy Canada Day,” you’ll hear Canadian legend Alanis Morissette sing “O Canada” in English and French

Starting July 1st, you can ask Alexa, “do you love Canada?,” and the assistant will give you a new custom Canadian centric response every single day in July. There are no examples of what you can expect from this, so every day should be a pleasant little Canadian surprise.

If you’re an Amazon Music subscriber, you can also listen to some custom playlists from prominent Canadian artists that those musicians feel represent their cities and town.

According to Amazon’s official press release, if you greet the assistant with a “Happy Canada Day,” you’ll hear Canadian legend Alanis Morissette sing “O Canada” in English and French.

Further, you could also ask, “Alexa, how is Canada today?” to hear Canadian musician and radio personality Shad share “a powerful message of reflection.”

Starting on July 3rd, you can finally ask, “Alexa, what’s Alanis’ thought of the day” because every Canadian’s dream is to get inside the head of the superhuman behind Ironic.  And that’s not all, if you’re an Amazon Music subscriber, you can also listen to some custom playlists from prominent Canadian artists that those musicians feel represent their cities and town.
