Roses are red, violets are blue, Alexa tell me the best Valentine’s day commands, and a couple of romantic skills too.

Yes, it’s 14 February when we commemorate St Valentine slaying the dragon Medusa and falling in love with the Ewoks – or something like that. Anyway, whatever St Valentine did, it means Alexa’s got mushy over some great hidden commands.

Try these Alexa commands:

"Alexa, what are you doing for Valentine’s Day?"
"Alexa, give me a fact about Valentine’s Day"
"Alexa, will you be my valentine?"
"Alexa, recite a Shakespearian sonnet"
"Alexa, will you marry me?"
"Alexa, find Prime romantic movies."

Amazon also pushed a bunch of skills our way, which were so wide-of-the-mark for Valentine’s Day, it was genuinely hilarious. The best was remotely ordering via Dominos pizza – easily the most underwhelming romantic meal of all time.

But if you really want to create a romantic mood, what about this little Alexa smart home routine:

1. Go to the Routines section of the Alexa app
2. Hit the + to create a new Routine
3. Tap "When this happens.."
4. Tap Voice and give the name of the command such as “Alexa, it’s business time”
5. Tap Add action
6. Tap Music, and then write in the name of the artist, song or playlist – e.g. Flight of the Conchords – Business Time.
7. Choose a source e.g. Spotify.
8. Add another action
9. Choose a smart bulb, and edit the behaviour
10. Choose Power: on; Brightness: 30% and Colour: deep romantic rouge. Press Next.
11. Save your Routine and use sparingly.
