Last week Sony provided hotel and transportation so we could attend the Press Junket for Hotel Transylvania 3. It was quite the whirlwind of a trip and included so many different fun things. One of the things we did was a very quick presentation on the Amazon Echo and the special Hotel Transylvania 3 content and it’s adorable. It’s also available using Alexa. “Alexa, open Hotel Transylvania”.
Hey Echo, Open Hotel Transylvania
Once you open up Hotel Transylvania, you will be provided with some options, like Drac’s Pack or tell a joke, or tell a bedtime story. Each of these items are voiced by your favorite Hotel Transylvania actors including Andy Samberg (Johnny), Steve Buscemi (Wayne the werewolf), Keegan-Michael Key (Murray the mummy), Fran Drescher (Eunice), and Asher Blinkoff (Dennis).
A new story, nursery rhyme, or joke read by the popular cast will be available every day through Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation’s nationwide release on July 13. You can access this new skill by simply saying, “Alexa, open Hotel Transylvania.” Or if you named your Echo something else, just say hey, “Echo” or whatever you named it, “Echo, Open Hotel Transylvania”.
In addition to bedtime stories, you can also set up a custom Hotel Transylvania alarm for Alexa through the Amazon Alexa app.
When I was over at my friend’s house I turned it on for all the kids to play with. Watching them interact with Echo made me want to purchase one myself. I knew that kids could ask it to play music and stuff like that, but I had no idea there was themed features like the Hotel Transylvania content. It was really cool.
