Inspiration

When walking to class or driving, I like to listen to my Spotify playlists. When a new song starts playing, I often find myself guessing the song title as sort of a mental game with myself. The idea of being able to play a game tailored to my own quirky habits was the driving force to build “What's That Song.”

What it does

VUI Diagram

While there are Alexa Skills that have users guess songs, these skills are not customizable. With “What's That Song,” users can play the game using their followed Spotify playlists as their song pack. This allows users to play with public playlists or their own personalized, custom playlists.

Along with being customizable, “What's That Song” is available in the following locales:

  • US English: en-US
  • UK English: en-GB
  • Canadian English: en-CA
  • Australian English: en-AU
  • German: de-DE

Additionally, “What's That Song” is playable as a singleplayer or multiplayer game for up to four players with the use of Amazon Echo Buttons.

It is also prepared with the Alexa Presentation Language (APL), enabling the skill to have beautiful visuals on screened devices, such as the Echo Show or Echo Spot.
