Not only can you buy Black Friday deals with Amazon’s voice-activated assistant Alexa, you can now ask it for recipes too. Cooking website Allrecipes has introduced an Alexa skill which allows users to search the website’s catalog of 60,000 recipes for step-by-step instructions on how to prepare them.
You can ask Alexa for a specific dish, ask what can be cooked with certain ingredients, or even get a suggestion based on cooking time. For example, ask Alexa what you can make with chicken and sweetcorn and it will make a meal recommendation based on that criteria, along with an estimated cooking time. If it will take too long, you can tell Alexa how much time you want to spend cooking and it will make another recommendation. Check it out in the ad below.
Users can download the Alexa skill to their smartphone in the Alexa app by tapping the “Skills” option in the menu and searching for Allrecipes.
In other Alexa news, Amazon recently launched its Black Friday online store and introduced Alexa-exclusive deals, allowing Prime members to carry out complete voice-activated purchases on Alexa-enabled devices.
