Game developer Zynga is launching a revised version of its once-popular Scrabble-like web game Words with Friends exclusively for Amazon Alexa today. The new game, called Word Pop, is a voice-based version of the word game that asks players to spell as many unique words as they can from a given six-letter bank across one-minute sessions. Players are scored based on the length of words and the total number of words.
Zynga says the game is designed for any Alexa-enabled device, including Echo speakers and other third-party Alexa devices. You can start a game by saying, “Hey Alexa, play Word Pop,” starting today.
“The beauty of Words With Friends is that even after ten years, we’re still discovering new ways for the franchise to bring joy to players around the world.
