Alexa Can Now Play Starfinder

Now, playing Starfinder can be as easy as simply asking Alexa to start a game for you. No need for grabbing the group together. You can just talk to your house and it'll begin. Paizo has released this entirely new way to play. And it's not just a start with no continue planned. There'll be more coming in January.

From the website:

To play, all you have to do is say, “Alexa, play Starfinder” on any Alexa-enabled device. That will take you to the free pilot episode, “Scoundrels in the Spike,” adapted from the Starfinder Beginner Box adventure of the same name.

If you don’t already have an Alexa-enabled device, Alexa can be downloaded and installed for free on a variety of devices like phones, tablets, or computers. Just make sure you have a strong data connection (wifi is probably best).

I don’t want to spoil the wonders of Absalom Station’s Spike brought to vivid life by professional voice actors, immersive soundscapes, and screeching space goblins, but I will say that Starfinder on Alexa is an experience unlike any other, and with Alexa as your Game Master, get ready for some out-of-this-world excitement!

But the adventure doesn’t end with “Scoundrels in the Spike.” We’ve got more Starfinder on Alexa premium content planned for early 2020, with an adaptation of “Incident at Absalom Station,” the first volume of the Dead Suns Adventure Path. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with details on that as we get closer to release. For more information go to the Alexa Starfinder Skill page.

The pilot episode is free and is available in English in the United States. It will expand to Canada, Australia, the UK, and India in mid-January.

This might leave me with more questions than anything (especially since I don't have an Alexa enabled device). Is this basically an App GM?
