Digital entertainment company Hungama has launched Hungama Music Quiz Alexa skill, which allows users of Amazon Echo and Fire TV devices, Alexa app, Amazon Shopping App (Android only) and Alexa-enabled devices to play an engaging music-driven trivia game.
The skill allows Alexa users to test their knowledge of music across different categories such as Bollywood hits, romantic songs and dance numbers. Users get to play against other players across India with their total scores matched against each other to decide the winner.
To play the game, users simply need to say, “Alexa, open Hungama Music Quiz”. Alexa will welcome the users and give a recap of the user’s existing score, if applicable, and then ask them to choose a category to compete in. Once the category is selected by the player, Alexa will pick an opponent for the user and will play five song clips of approximately 8 seconds each. The user then needs to guess the song name and movie name. If the user gets either the song or the movie name correct, they win 10 points and if they answer both, the song and movie name correctly, they score 20 points. The player’s total score is compared with the opponent’s score and whoever has scored higher wins that round of the Music Quiz. A top score gets the player a place in the weekly/monthly leader boards as well.
Siddhartha Roy, COO, Hungama Digital Media, said, “We have always believed in developing innovative ways to engage with our users. We were the among the first music streaming service to be available with voice commands on Alexa -enabled devices and are once again, the first in India to develop an Alexa skill that allows us to interact with users through a Bollywood music-related quiz. We are glad to bring this new experience on Alexa and are certain that consumers will find the new skill both, entertaining and engaging.”
