Commenting on the launch of 9XM’s Bade-Chote skill for Alexa, Dilip R.S., country manager for Alexa Skills, Amazon India, says in a press release, “We are constantly on the lookout for skills that not only provide information but also entertain our subscribers. With Bade-Chote jokes, we are sure to turn up the entertainment quotient for our users - from youngsters and kids, to the entire family.”

The Bade-Chote skill will enable users to find the humorous Bade-Chote jokes with a single voice command. To listen to Bade Chote’s infamous Bakwaas Bandh Kar Jokes a user has to say “Alexa, tell Bade Chote jokes” or “Alexa open Bade Chote jokes” or “Alexa launch Bade Chote jokes”. The device will start playing the jokes till the user says “Alexa, stop” or “Alexa, pause”. A library of 100 jokes is already a part of the skill for users to enjoy. New jokes will be uploaded on a regular basis to keep the library refreshed.

Speaking on the occasion, Kapil Sharma, SVP marketing and PR, 9X Media, says in a press release, “9XM is a preferred destination amongst the youth and we engage with our viewers across platforms which are popular youth hangouts. Over the years Bade-Chote have connected with audiences on platforms including malls, cafes, multiplexes, IVR calls, mobile games, Facebook messenger chatbots, etc. Our decision to build an Alexa skill is an extension to reach out to our audiences where they hangout. We are confident that the skill will resonate with Alexa users and Bade-Chote fans across the globe and keep them hooked for more!”
