First off, the game is, in fact, “Electronic Football,” the game that was made famous and earned a small cult following in previous generations. However, this time, instead of being a cumbersome arcade-style machine or a very bulky tabletop box, it is a small and compact handheld portable game.

Feeling chilly? Forget reaching for your thermostat controls. As long as you have the 3rd Generation Nest Learning Thermostat, all you need to do is to call out the temperature settings that you would like your room to be set in and Alexa will command the Nest to automatically adjust the thermostat settings.
