Amazon Echo is already pretty darn useful, but its latest update adds a fun trivia game you're definitely familiar with: Jeopardy!. After installing its app's newest version, you can start playing by issuing its voice assistant a command: "Alexa, start Jeopardy!" Just like the show, it will draw questions from different categories, including sports, pop culture, travel and world history, to test your ability to recall trivial bits of information. And just like in the show, you'd have to answer in the form of a question. Besides adding the game, the update also gives you the power to skip audiobook chapters on Audible via voice command for days you'd rather listen than play.
