Word Pop is an entirely new take on classic Words With Friends style play. In the game, Alexa challenges players to create as many words as possible from a six-letter bank, through a series of one-minute sessions. Players must say or spell as many words as they can during each session, earning points for both the number and length of words found. To access the game, players simply say, “Alexa, open Word Pop” on any Alexa device to enable the skill and begin solving word puzzles.

We’re dedicated to experimenting with services such as Alexa and game modes like Word Pop, which gives players a familiar, yet novel experience.”
