Enable Alexa Skills

Skills are voice-driven capabilities that enhance and personalize your Alexa devices.

We're releasing a series of incremental Alexa App improvements. We're working hard to bring you help content that matches these improvements. Thank you for your patience.

You can search for and enable skills in the Alexa app and from the Alexa Skills store on the Amazon website. If you know the exact name of the skill you want, you can say, "Enable (skill name)." Skill availability varies by country. For information about enabling and using skills for smart home devices, go to Connect Smart Home Devices to Alexa.

To enable Alexa skills in the Alexa app:

  1. From the menu, select Skills & Games.
  2. Find a skill you want to use, and then select it to open the skill detail page.
  3. Select Enable Skill, or ask Alexa to open the skill.
    Tip: Refer to the skill's detail page for examples of things to say and to learn more.

Manage Your Skills

You can view and manage your skills from the Alexa app.

  1. From the menu, select Skills & Games.
  2. Select Your Skills.

Select a skill to open the skill detail page and access available options, including:
  • Disable skill - When you no longer want to use a skill, select the Disable option. Or say, "Disable (skill name)."
  • Manage Permissions - Approve or revoke requested access from the Settings section of the skill detail page.
  • Turn on Access to Kid Skills – After you turn on Allow Kid Skills for the first time, children have access to all kid skills. To learn more, got to Alexa and Alexa Device FAQs
