Although Amazon hasn’t yet announced a Canada release date for Echo we’re still seeing forward movement on the Canadian Alexa Skills front. Enter TideGuide by Argusware. This skill will give the tide report for most locations with a NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) station along with some popular beaches. In the Skill’s description supported cities/locations include Vancouver. To use the TideGuide skill, try saying…

  • Alexa, ask tide guide for the tides in Vancouver

Edit: Alexa is referring to Vancouver, Washington and not Vancouver, BC… Oh well. We’ll keep an eye out for more made-in-Canada Alex Skills.
