Functionality for children

Amazon has also thought of two features dedicated to the little ones. Children who want to follow the long journey of Santa Claus, every day until December 26, will be able to activate the Santa Tracker, asking “Alexa, where is Santa Claus?” and Alexa, through a dedicated Skill for children, created in collaboration with 22HDBG, will pass the word to Santa Claus who will respond with funny anecdotes and Christmas curiosities. The children can also try to call Santa Claus by saying “Alexa, call Santa“. Obviously Santa will not be reachable because he is busy, but he will have left a funny Christmas-themed message on the answering machine.
