Amazon Alexa Can Now Quiz You on Your Harry Potter Knowledge
Using Amazon Alexa is the closest many muggles can get to performing wizardry at home. Now, the voice-activated assistance comes with a new skill that makes it even more magical: Give it the proper command and Alexa will quiz you on your Harry Potter knowledge, with a different set of questions to answer each day.
The quiz, a collaboration between Audible and Pottermore Publishing, is available through any Alexa-enabled device, including Echo, Echo Show, Echo Dot, Echo Spot, and phones with the Alexa app. After saying "Alexa, play Harry Potter quiz," you choose a difficulty level, a Hogwarts house, and a magical avatar.
You'll be asked three questions after listening to excerpts from the Harry Potter audiobooks, narrated by voiceover artist Imogen Church in the UK version and Laurel Lefkow in the U.S. Answering questions correctly earns you points for your house, and acing all three unlocks a bonus question. The quizzes are short, but players can return each day for a new challenge.
If Alexa's quiz leaves you wanting more, there are plenty of places where you can continue to test your knowledge of the wizarding world. See how long it takes you to give the last names of all the Harry Potter characters, or to get through our Harry Potter quiz of escalating difficulty.
