Super Bowl Tips & Tricks for Google Home, Amazon Echo, and Siri

The Super Bowl is almost here, and whether you care about the food , the ads, or the game itself, there is a lot to get excited about. But if none of this interests you, you may enjoy talking about soccer with your chosen AI assistant.

Here are some tips and tricks on how to talk about the Super Bowl using Google Home, Amazon Echo, or Siri.

Google Home and Google Assistant

Google has added a bunch of new questions that you can ask your AI assistant just in time for the big game. If you need direct information, you can ask standard questions such as “What time is it Super Bowl?” and “What channel is the Super Bowl on?”

The company has also added some humorous questions and answers. Ask Google who will win and you will get one of several smart answers. The first time Google told me that he went to the future to record the final moments of the game, and then play an incomprehensible piece of sound. The second time, he said, “I’ll go with someone more patriotic,” before explaining why this might apply to any team.

You can also say “Ok Google, landing” to play the same audio clip, which sounds like players are bumping into each other while someone blows the whistle. Say Google “Give me a game prediction” or “Assistant Coach, motivate me” for even more soccer jokes.

Alexa and Amazon Echo

Just like Google Assistant, Amazon’s AI can tell you when a game will start, who’s playing this year, and what channel it’s on. If you ask Alexa who will win, she will say that the New England Patriots have a better chance before adding that she is still a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Alexa is often rooting for a loser,” Amazon told The Boston Globe . “Last year she had a friendly rivalry with the Patriots, and that feeling continues this year.”

To get more Super Bowl fun, you can check out a few third-party skills for your Amazon Echo. Here’s one for easy and fun Super Bowl trivia, and another skill if you just want to learn fun facts about the game. Finally, if you’re not a soccer fanatic , SuperbOwl: Facts will tell you all about owls .

Siri

Apple’s AI can tell you when a game will start, who will be playing, and what channel it’s on. If you ask who will win, Siri will explain what the chances of winning the Patriots are, and you can clarify by asking, “What are the chances that [TEAM NAME] will beat [TEAM NAME]?”

You can also try asking, “Who is on the show between Super Bowl?” or “Where is the Super Bowl being played this year?” If you need more information (or need to wager between friends while playing), Siri can even answer questions such as “Who has scored the most field goals this season, Patriots or Eagles?” or “What college did Tom Brady play in?”
