Cream City Digital, beta testers for Amazon’s new voice service, Polly, launched the Alexa skill,“Trivia Night.” The new Alexa skill showcases Polly’s ability to translate text into lifelike speech.

"The number of voice skills available in the Alexa skill store is growing exponentially, but there aren't a lot of quality skills worthy of a users' time and attention. We applied to beta test the Amazon Polly service to make our game, "Trivia Night," more entertaining and engaging. Players face up to two computer generated contestants with lifelike voices as they aim to win the virtual Trivia Night Trophy. The use of Polly allows us to create a game atmosphere that is less robotic and more conversational," said Jill Schmidt, President of Cream City Digital.

The Trivia Night Alexa skill can be accessed with any Alexa-enabled device such as the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show or Fire TV. Enable the skill here: and say "Alexa, play Trivia Night" to get started.
