Michael Bublé Debuts New Alexa Skill — But Why?

 

Music sensation Michael Bublé is celebrating his rise to the highest of the UK charts with a brand new Alexa Skill.

The ability known as Bublé Daily, and it's activated by asking Alexa to “open Bublé Daily.”

The new ability is offered within the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, India, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, and Spain.
