Alexa is always ready to help and entertain, and has been on hand to answer millions of questions posed by inquisitive users in the UK this past year. ‘Alexa’s Most Asked’ reveals insights into the fascinating minds of customers in the UK who turned to Alexa during 2022.

“People all over the world are interacting with Alexa billions of times each week to learn, be entertained, and get help with tasks,” said Dennis Stansbury, Alexa UK & Ireland Country Manager. “Watching Peppa Pig, finding out football scores, getting pancake recipes, asking Alexa to sing ‘Happy Birthday’, and saying ‘thank you’ are some of the most popular things that people in the UK have used Alexa for in 2022.”

From Prince Harry and Billie Eilish, to the World Cup and Wimbledon, Alexa has answered questions covering a wide array of 2022’s hottest topics, including questions related to the Royal Family such as “Alexa, how old is King Charles?” and “Alexa, who is Prince William married to?”.

Celebrity news had the nation hooked, with Alexa users keen to learn about their favourite famous faces, with “Alexa, how tall is Rishi Sunak?”, “Alexa, what is Elon Musk’s net worth?” and “Alexa, who is Ariana Grande married to?” coming in as the top celebrity questions.

With the launch of the new biopic, Elvis fever hit the UK in 2022 with the singer coming third out of the top requested artists via Alexa and Amazon Music, with Ed Sheeran and George Ezra coming in first and second respectively. The 2021 box office hit Encanto continued to stay in the hearts and minds of customers in the UK this year, with We Don’t Talk About Bruno coming in at number four of the top requested songs via Alexa and Amazon Music, and Encanto (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) the top requested album of 2022.

Outside of Hollywood, sport-related requests are where Alexa has also been helping out, with eager football fans scouting for score updates and asking when the World Cup starts, whilst tennis fans used their devices to find out when Wimbledon was starting.
