Sidekick

Alexa always has your back with these supportive and funny responses.

Hear a sample of Sidekick

"Alexa, open My Bestie."

Alexa: Welcome! I’ve always got your back. Just ask a question and I will tell you what you want to hear. What would you like to know?

"Should I have dessert after dinner?"

Alexa: Do it, you've earned it!

"Why don't people listen to me?"

Alexa: They fail to see your greatness, but that's their problem.
