Now let’s…. GO GO GO GO GOOOOO
We’ve packed our “Bing Time” Alexa skill full of content for you! We have Bing stories, songs and games. The skill has been designed so it can easily be used by our Bingsters. We will be adding content overtime but for now, here are a few tips on what is in the skill and how to use it:
Just say: “Alexa, open Bing Time”
The first time you use our skill, you will hear a Welcome Message.
Please play around with the skill with your little Bingster(s). Put them in charge! Let them explore!
If you have a screen device, you can interact with the skill through voice and screen alike. We’ve added videos to make our skill even better but if you’d rather keep it screen free, that’s fine too.
“Alexa, more from Bing Time”
At any point whilst using the skill, you can change activity by asking for more options.
“Alexa, ask Bing Time for…”
You can open the skill by saying “Alexa, open Bing Time” or you can ask Alexa to go straight to a section within the skill by saying “Alexa, ask Bing Time for a Story” or “Alexa, ask Bing Time for a Song”
Once you’re in the skill you can simply say “Alexa, story” and our skill will choose one of our wonderful stories. If you have one in mind just say “Alexa, play Ducks” for example.
Once you’ve explored a bit, try some of the following phrases to explore different stories, songs and games on offer:
“Alexa, ask Bing Time for a Story”
We have a selection of audio-stories for your Bingsters with more to come this year.
Join Bing and his friends, go to the “Paddling Pool” or feed the “Ducks”
If you are doing bedtime story, you can listen to “Sleepover” or “Hoppity Voosh and the Moonkeeper”
“Alexa, ask Bing Time for a Song”
Singing, it’s a Bing Thing! We love the Bananamento song or learning about the colours of the “Rainybow”.
And if you also want to get active why not say “Alexa, Top Speed”, we guarantee you some fun and giggles…
But if it is time to drift off to sleep, try “Alexa, ask Bing Time for Sleepy Music”. You can even set a sleep timer after which the music will stop by saying “Alexa, set up a sleep timer for 10 minutes”
“Alexa, ask Bing Time for a Game”
Time to move? Bing Time also has games! Your Bingster can dance to the “Waka-oke” game or play “Musical Statues” with Bing.
It’s great fun for the Grown-ups too! Make sure you watch out for wobbles…
If you need to exit the skill, just say “Alexa, stop”
