Sony Pictures Television
With over 8,000 episodes aired, a record 39 Daytime Emmy Awards won – as well as a Peabody Award. It makes sense for Jeopardy to have received the digital makeover into a Voice Driven release. Released back on December 30th 2015 into the Amazon’s Alexa Skill store, Jeopardy! has took off to become of the most popular Skills on the store – currently boasting over 50,000 reviews.
Each day new clues are added, where you can challenge the categories that were aired on the latest episode for free! There is also additional content that can be purchased with a small subscription fee of $1.99. The additional content includes an additional 6 clues that can be played, plus Teen Jeopardy! and Sports Jeopardy! on Sundays – as well as the ability to replay the previous days clues if they were missed.
The Jeopardy! skill takes great advantage of Alexa and Google devices that have a screen, displaying the clues that you are answering – as well as some additional graphical prompts as the skill is played.
While Jeopardy! is a single player skill, it does add in a dash of competition by showing your ongoing results, as well as showing a comparison of your results compared to everyone else who has complete the days clues.
Guess the titles and artists of your favorite songs for points! Challenge your friends and family in live competitions or compete head to head against other music fans where you will pit your knowledge of the past 60 years of music to the test!
Currently, Song Quiz covers popular music from the decades: 2010s, 2000s, 90s, 80s, 70s, and 60s! – with more music being added often!
Song Quiz also offers a subscriber status, which allows you to access more songs, exclusive playlists, brand new music every month and being able to play your favourite genres ranging from Rap, Classic Rock and more!
Overall, we would strongly recommend Song Quiz – with its popularity causing several spin offs to also be released including Holiday Song Quiz and Country Song Quiz which can only at this time be found on the Alexa Skill store.
