  1. Alexa skills for child accounts


    Hi - I tried to set up Alexa to turn on my Xbox One X, however when setting up the skill, I got an error message while signing in with my son's Xbox account saying child accounts can't be used to set up the skills.

    I'm curious if anyone is aware of a workaround for this or if you have to use a different, non-child, account to set up the skill on the Xbox? I'm assuming if I do the latter, that the Xbox will sign into that account when turned on, which wouldn't be my
    son's account?

    Thanks!

    :)

    Thanks so much for the reply. I looked at my Settings and I don't see where I can enable this on the Child Account. Can you please provide more specific instructions?

    Thanks!

    If you go to the accounts thing, you can make it customized to your own liking so you can have the things you don't want your child to do online, but you can have it use Alexa.

    This is a bit different from my question, however very helpful for a different reason. I wasn't aware of this. Thank you!

    You can only have one linked to it at a time Set up Alexa with Xbox One

    Note Xbox Skill for Alexa may not be available in all locales.

    Setup

    To set up the Xbox Skill for Alexa:

    1. Sign in to your Xbox.
    2. Say “Alexa, open Xbox” and open the Alexa app, or search for Xbox in the Skills section of the Alexa app.
    3. Select the Xbox Skill and sign in with your Microsoft account.
    4. Follow the instructions to discover your console and pair it to your Alexa device(s).
    If multiple people will be signing in on the same Xbox, see Use Alexa with multiple Xbox profiles.

    Alexa commands for Xbox

    Standard commands

    For access to all the commands available for the Xbox Skill on Alexa, use the standard command structure, like this:

    • “Alexa, tell Xbox to pause”
    • “Alexa, tell Xbox to resume”
    • “Alexa, tell Xbox to turn up volume”
    • “Alexa, tell Xbox to turn volume down 5”
    • “Alexa, tell Xbox to turn off”
    • “Alexa, tell Xbox to launch Rocket League”
    • “Alexa, tell Xbox to launch Netflix”
    • “Alexa, tell Xbox to start broadcasting”
    • “Alexa, ask Xbox what I can say”
    Both “Tell Xbox” and “Ask Xbox” work for standard commands.

    Smart home commands

    Alexa smart home commands work for power, volume, and media controls. With smart home commands, you can drop the “Tell Xbox” or “Ask Xbox” portion, as in these examples:

    • “Alexa, pause Xbox”
    • “Alexa, resume on Xbox”
    • “Alexa, turn the Xbox volume up”
    • “Alexa, turn the volume down on Xbox”
    • “Alexa, turn off Xbox”
    The default device name in the Alexa app’s Smart Home Devices section is “Xbox,” but smart home commands will work if you change the name to something else – “Living Room Xbox” or “Zach’s Xbox,” for example. This becomes especially important if you want
    to use Alexa with more than one Xbox. You can change the device name for your Xbox under Smart Home > Devices in the Alexa mobile app.

    If you’ve recently used your Xbox One and there aren’t any other smart home devices paired with Alexa, you can drop the device name altogether, like this:

    • “Alexa, pause”
    • “Alexa, play”
    • “Alexa, resume”
    • “Alexa, skip forward”
