What is Alexa? Well, if you have the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap or the Amazon Fire TV device, you know that Alexa is the brain behind those devices, the voice companion with the pleasant female tone that answers questions and responds to commands. Alexa is like a digital concierge to any of your internet queries.

SYFY is the first entertainment network to launch an Alexa skill, which allows you to interact with Alexa for immediate and exclusive news about SYFY’s shows simply by requesting it. For example, you can ask Alexa "What happened on the last 12 Monkeys?" or "What happens in the next episode of Hunters?" and Alexa will answer with the information you've requested. 

Developed by SYFY’s innovation lab SYFY Labs with NBCUniversal Media Labs, the new SYFY skill will give fans behind-the-scenes previews, scheduling and episode info – as well as plenty of “Easter Eggs” to discover.
