Ring In The New Year With These Useful Alexa New Years Eve Skills.

Can Alexa do a New Year’s Eve countdown? Yes, she can! Amazon's smart speakers have several Alexa New Year’s Eve countdown skills. Here are some Alexa New Year’s Eve countdown skills to help you ring in the New Year.

New Year’s Countdown

Because this skill, “New Year’s Countdown,” is so close to the “New Year Countdown” skill, we suggest you only enable one. Otherwise, it is confusing to both you and Alexa.


  • “Alexa, enable the New Year’s Countdown skill.” 
  • “Alexa, ask the new year countdown how long is left.”
  • “Alexa, ask the new year countdown to start the countdown.” A manual trigger for a 10-second countdown.

New Year

The “New Year” Alexa skill (free) is helpful if you have friends and family celebrating New Year’s Eve in different cities. Just enable the “New Year” skill and ask how much time you have left in the city of your choice.

  • “Alexa, enable the New Year skill.”
  • “Alexa, ask New Year the time left in Salt Lake City.”
  • “Alexa, ask new year the time left in San Francisco.”

More Fun Things To Ask Alexa About The New Year

Here are some more fun things to ask Alexa on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. For example, did you know that Alexa can sing Auld Lang Syne (The New Year’s Song)? Go ahead and give it a try. Happy New Year!

Five ways Alexa New Years Eve Skills can help you achieve your New Year's resolutions

Enable these Alexa skills on your Amazon Echo and reap significant benefits in 2022.

Do you always need help keeping your New Year's resolutions? Do you plan every January to improve your diet, exercise more, or save money but give up before the end of the year? You're not alone. A 2019 Statista survey conducted in the US found that only 9% of those surveyed said they never break their resolutions. 

Keeping your promise to yourself would be easier if you had a little nonjudgmental help. That's where Alexa comes in. Here are some ways to use Alexa to make your New Year's resolutions stick.

Alexa can stop that bad habit.

Use the Talk Me Down skill when you have a moment of weakness. The goal of the skill is to talk you out of breaking your resolution. 

After enabling the skill, say, "Alexa, talk me down," and she'll give you a motivational pep talk that will help you drop the fork, push away the pack of cigarettes, or re-cork the bottle. It sounds cheesy, but it can help.

Alexa can help you have better mornings.

If you resolve to be more productive and positive in the morning (guilty!), you may find the My Morning skill helpful. It uses minute-long prompts to guide you through a wake-up routine. 

For example, Minute 1 could include silence or meditation, Minute 2 could be a prompt to visualize your day, Minute 3 could ask you to think of five things you're grateful for, Minute 4 could have you list your top three priorities for the day, and so on. It's Alexa getting your rear in gear with some motivational techniques.

Alexa can help you save the planet.

Taking better care of the Earth is always a great resolution. One step you can start this January is taking shorter showers to conserve water and electricity. 

The Shower Timer skill tracks your time in the shower and challenges you to beat your daily record. It makes a game out of being greener.
