05 Jan Hoopla now supports Amazon Alexa devices
Hoopla now supports Amazon Alexa devices! You can play borrowed audiobooks and music albums directly on your Amazon Echo, Dot, Spot, and Show devices. Additionally, Alexa can tell you how many borrows you have left in the month, what you currently have borrowed, the Library’s phone number (if you need a person to talk with) and more! When listening to music from Hoopla, you can use “Alexa next” or “Alexa previous” to go to the next/previous tracks.
When asking Alexa to interact with Hoopla, phrase your command like this:
“Alexa, ask hoopla…”
Watch the video below for a demonstration or check out the complete list of commands on the Hoopla FAQ page.
Hoopla is a digital media service offered by the Library that allows you to borrow movies, music, audiobooks, ebooks, comics, graphic novels, and TV shows to enjoy on your computer, tablet, or phone – and even your TV! There’s no waiting Hoopla; stream content immediately, or download your selections to phones or tablets for offline enjoyment later. With Hoopla, you can check out 10 items per month. There are hundreds of thousands of titles to choose from and more are added daily.
