If I were to market the Ubi today, one of the killer features would be its ability to push notifications and announcements. Fortunately, for those who have an Ubi still, they can use this with the newly released Ubi Portal Skill:

“Alexa tell Ubi Portal it’s dinner time”

Result… The Ubi in the kid’s room announces it’s dinner time.

It’s also possible to command the Ubi to play music from Soundcloud through an Ask Ubi command:

“Alexa tell Ubi Portal wake up the kids”

Result… playing Panama in the kids’ room.

How do to this? 1) Find an Ubi. 2) Setup an Ubi Portal account at portal.theubi.com. 3) With your Alexa device, sign up for the Ubi Portal Skill and link your account. 4) Setup a Lesson similar to one of the above. 5) Enjoy!
