Our developer guidelines ensure that the skill experiences encourage exploration and creativity among kids,” said Dilip RS, Country Manager for Alexa Skills, Amazon.
“Amar Chitra Katha has been synonymous with the knowledge of history and mythology for over 50 years. We are happy to extend our long legacy of quizzing from Uncle Pai’s time, as an Alexa skill. Just say “Alexa, open Amar Chitra Katha Quiz” to get started. Users can also expect hours of fun by engaging with our most popular Tinkle characters Shambu on animal facts and Suppandi on mind-boggling riddles,” said Sanjay Dhar, President, Amar Chitra Katha.
