As posted on Amazon’s Alexa has mad skills. 10,000 of them, to be exact.

Alexa: Congratulate yourself.

Amazon’s digital assistant for the Echo and other devices officially has 10,000 skills, the company announced Thursday.

The lucky 10,000th skill: Beat the Intro, a game that tests your ability to recognize songs. 

It joins a growing list of talents, including the ability to check your bank account, turn on your smart home lights and set you up with some sweet jams while you cook. 

“We’ve been blown away by the innovation and activity in the Alexa developer community,” wrote David Isbitski,  Amazon’s “chief evangelist” for Alexa and Echo, in a blog post

The company said some of the highest-rated “skills” include interactive, voice-controlled games, like Jeopardy!, which turns Alexa into Alex Trebek. Alexa sure has come a long way since 2014. To the next 10,000!
