Chocolate is great, but did you know that your Libratone ZIPP 2 Smart Speaker comes with its own Easter eggs, courtesy of Amazon Alexa Voice Service?
Hunting for Easter eggs is one of our favourite ways to spend the holiday. But this time, we mean hunting for Amazon Alexa Easter Eggs.
We won’t assume you all know what we mean by ‘Easter eggs’ when we talk about Amazon Alexa. So, in this sense, we don’t mean the delicious chocolate ones, but an Easter egg, in this instance, is a purposely hidden secret message or feature placed by the technology developers, (or in other Non-Alexa cases by the movie makers, computer game producers and so on) for people to find. The finding is the fun part – hence the term ‘Easter egg’ although the content is also often something humorous too, such as an inside joke.
Amazon Alexa has lots of Easter eggs for you to find and we were spoilt for choice which ones to share with you. But having asked around the Libratone office, these were some of our own favourites… We also tried them all on our ZIPP 2 smart speaker to check they were still active waiting for you to find them.
If you haven’t had the chance to enjoy the features on our ZIPP 2 smart speaker yet, or haven’t really tested Alexa, above and beyond just playing your favourite music, then this gives you a great opportunity to enjoy some fun, quality time with Alexa! As well as delivering on voice services, the ZIPP 2 and ZIPP MINI 2 also come with AirPlay 2 compatibility, 360 FullRoom® sound, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, multi-room music and up to 12 hours of battery time. Easily portable, they can be used wherever you need them - making it the ideal speaker for you home, office and even when travelling (when you might find Alexa especially useful with all her local knowledge on, well everywhere!)
How to find your Easter eggs
To make this Easter egg hunt more fun for you, we have given you the Easter egg questions that you need to ask Alexa, but not her replies… so as not to spoil it!
So, whether a film buff, a music fan, or just wanting to quiz Alexa on her own personal life, here are a few Easter eggs to get you started.
Get to know Alexa a little better by asking her these questions.
- Alexa, how was your day?
- Alexa, do you have any pets?
- Alexa, will you be my girlfriend?

On a similar musical theme, and a favourite type of Easter egg in our office, you can also make music with Alexa. Try asking her…
- Alexa, drop a beat
- Alexa, rap for me
- Alexa, sing a song
Moving onto another area of general knowledge. Does Alexa know her movies? Quote her these famous movie lines to see how she responds.
- Alexa, show me the money!
- Alexa, surely you can't be serious.
- Alexa, what's the first rule of Fight Club?
- Alexa, what's the second rule of Fight Club?

Finally, here are a few general knowledge questions you can ask her.
- Alexa, who is the fairest of them all?
- Alexa, what is the value of pi?
These are just some of literally hundreds of Easter eggs out there. And, if you have been entertained by this selection, the easiest way to find some more is to simply ask Alexa herself… If you say ‘Alexa, give me an Easter egg’ then she will tell you exactly what to ask to receive one of her wittiest responses.
Alexa can provide lots of entertainment for you, your family and friends. Our final tip for you is to say ‘Alexa, I am bored’, and see what she suggests…
We hope you have enjoyed these Easter eggs, there is so much to discover with Alexa, so stay tuned to our stories for more to come.
