Listening to TED Talks is as now easy as saying: “Alexa, ask TED Talks to play the latest talk,” or, “Alexa, ask TED Talks for something funny,” or, “Alexa, ask TED Talks to find talks about nature.”

The TED Conferences are devoted to “ideas worth spreading,” and its vast library of inspiring talks is accessible as an Alexa skill. The voice bot makes its debut this week on 5 bots to try.

Here are the five most popular bots this past week, as they appear on Botlist. Give them a try and let us know what you think.
