While there are a growing number of devices integrated with Amazon Alexa, SyFy recently announced that it is the first entertainment channel to tap into the voice assistant's power. With its new Alexa skill, the channel hopes to make its platform even more engaging for sci-fi fans.

As of now, SyFy viewers can use any device equipped with Amazon Alexa to ask questions about shows or movies on the channel. For instance, users can ask what happened on a previous episode or what happens to a specific character in a series. The new feature will also allow users to enjoy exclusive behind-the-scenes previews and access practical information such as schedules and episode information.

The new partnership demonstrates how entertainment platforms can also use Amazon Alexa to enhance the at-home entertainment experience.
