The Washington Capitals became the first professional sports team to unveil an Alexa Skill for Amazon's voice-controlled speaker market.

"The Capitals" Alexa Skill allows fans with an Amazon device (Echo, Echo-Dot and Echo Show) to ask "Alexa" specific questions including schedule, roster and statistical information about the Washington Capitals. In addition, the Capitals Skill has unique additions for fans including the ability to ask the Capitals to play the team's goal horn or to "Unleash the Fury" - a popular in-game experience from Capital One Arena. Fans with Alexa devices with screens will enter a dynamic multimodal visual experience.

The Capitals Flash Briefing is a popular method of delivering news through short audio messages that update daily featuring John Walton, radio voice of the Washington Capitals. Fans with Alexa devices with screens will see a video briefing featuring news and highlights about the team.

You can also listen to Caps Radio 24/7 on Echo devices through the TuneIn Radio application.

Sample Alexa questions include:

  • "Alexa, open The Capitals."
  • "Alexa, ask The Capitals how many goals Nicklas Backstrom has?"
  • "Alexa, ask The Capitals what their record is."
  • "Alexa, tell The Capitals to Unleash the Fury!"
  • "Alexa, play Caps Radio 24/7"

The Washington Capitals have expanded their smart home speaker market platform by launching a Google Action, and a Google Play Daily Briefing Podcast.

The Google Action, available now, allows fans with a Google Home compatible device to ask specific questions including score updates, player stats, team schedule and more.

The Capitals also developed a Google Play Daily Briefing Podcast featuring John Walton, radio voice of the Washington Capitals. The Capitals are the first professional sports team to enter the Google Assistant marketplace with a Google Action.

The official Washington Capitals action is the best way to get all of this information and more using Google Assistant. You can even Unleash the Fury and play our goal song! Start by saying, "Hey Google, talk to the Washington Capitals".
