It's May the fourth, which has been denoted as Star Wars day because the date sounds a bit like "may the force be with you". Go figure. This has been going on since 2011, and has even spawned a 5 May spin off, called Revenge of the Fifth, which is even more tiresome.

Star Wars fans, though, will be delighted that Amazon has been busy adding a bunch of Star Wars related Amazon Echo Easter Eggs to celebrate the day. This we can get on board with.

You can now ask Alexa the following commands:

"Alexa, what is the force?"

"Alexa, who is the best Jedi?"

"Alexa, can you talk like Yoda?"

"Alexa, do you like Star Wars?"

"Alexa, aren’t you a little tall for a storm trooper?"

"Alexa, what’s the Jedi code?"

"Alexa, I am your father"

"Alexa, there is no try"

"Alexa, tell me a Princess Leia Quote"

"Alexa, May the Force be with you"

"Alexa, May the fourth be with you"

"Alexa, when is Star Wars Day?"

"Alexa, what order should I watch Star Wars in?"

"Alexa, who is Luke Skywalker’s father?"

"Alexa, tell me a Star Wars joke"

"Alexa, tell me a Star Wars quote"

Amazon has been busy working up fun additions for Alexa, and there's even a team dedicated to dreaming up Easter eggs – which we find fascinating in itself. The release of the Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition and a bunch of UK content with Lego, Moshi and Pac-Man shows Amazon is keen to make Alexa fun as well as useful.
