Starting today, all Amazon Alexa users are now free to download the most-downloaded Xbox Game Pass games on the platform itself.

How to download Xbox Game Pass from Alexa?
It’s now easier to access the Xbox Game Pass through the Amazon Alexa. Your friendly digital assistant is now happy to serve Xbox players with more comfortability. Here’s how to do it.
According to The Verge, if you’ve already linked Alexa to your Xbox account, the process would be made easier as the digital assistant will only automatically find the game and install it directly in the console. However, if you have not linked your profile on the said platform, you will have to manually set up the link between them. This will require the user to install an Xbox skill through Amazon Alexa.
Once you’re done, Alexa can even give you details on which games are the newest or the most current popular games to be downloaded in the console. As of now, this feature is only available in the United States. Other plans of worldwide access on the Alexa-Xbox command is still planned for the future.
