We're excited to share that our online Summer Reading platform Beanstack now has an Alexa skill, which makes it even easier to keep track of the time you spend reading this summer! If you don't already have a Beanstack account, visit the Beanstack website or download the app to set up your account before logging time with the Alexa skill. Then follow these simple steps to set up the skill on your Alexa-enabled device and start logging your reading:
If your family has multiple Alexa devices at home, you can use the same Beanstack account across devices or connect each device to a different account. The Beanstack Tracker for Alexa only logs reading time or titles, so it won't work for activity-based programs like Summer Reading for Newborns to Age 5 or 10 to Try; you can use the app or website to log completed activities.
