Initially wanted to try the alexa audio directives and when the Echo Show was introduced I updated the skill to include the video directive. Just wanted to be funny.
What it does
If the Alexa device does not have a screen, Alexa starts a countdown and then the audio of an explosion. If it does have a screen a video shows a countdown and an explosion. It's a simple skill.
How I built it
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
It's a simple skill, and I see it like a dumb one, yet it's very popular. What started as a simple joke/experiment for me has become a popular skill.
What I learned
Sometimes I don't need to overthink or create something complex for people to enjoy it.
What's next for Autodestruct
Honestly, I don't know. As I've mentioned, it was a joke, and I don't find a way to monetize it, but maybe I'm wrong and it would be a good idea to receive feedback from other fellow developers.
