Complete Listing Of Alexa Skills As Of 3/4/16

8/13/16 UPDATE: This list was superseded by the LME Complete Skills List in May of 2016, but that list was discontinued effective 6/30/16 because Amazon has redesigned the Skills tab in the Alexa app to provide most of the same functionality. Please go to the Skills tab in the Alexa app to view a complete list of skills, which you can now filter by category.

Thanks go to Tiki Tom for compiling this alphabetical list and posting it to reddit two days ago. I’m reposting it here with his permission, and have updated it with most of the skills that have been released since Tom created the list—but not all, because the post was getting so long it was starting to crash my blog post editor!

You can scroll through the list to browse, but if there’s a specific type of skill you’re on the lookout for you can also search the page by pressing Ctrl+F to open a text search box in your browser for searches by title or keyword.

The Amazon Tap is still available for pre-order, but it appears the batch slated to go out on 3/29 has sold out because people ordering one today are reporting an estimated delivery date of 5/1/16 after their pre-order is processed. If you’re leaning toward getting one but you’re still a little on the fence, remember that you can cancel the pre-order anytime before the item ships and your payment method is not charged until the item ships. You can get an order in now before the next batch sells out and you’ve still got at least until 3/28 to cancel if you change your mind (because 3/29 is when the first batch ships).
