Alexa Can Help You Fact-Check The Election

Still optimistic that you can actually discuss the election with your friends? Good luck with that. In the meantime, Alexa can provide fact checking when things get too heated. “This fact-checking is being made possible by way of a new skill – one of the many add-on, voice-activated apps that enhance the powers of Amazon’s virtual assistant, who lives on devices like the Amazon Echo speaker, Fire TV, and others. The new ‘Share the Facts’ skill comes from the Duke Reporters’ Lab, which leverages respected fact checkers, including those from the Washington Post’s Fact Checker,, and PolitiFact, in order to answer your questions.”
