I performed a trick using Amazon's Alexa for house guests this weekend and they all freaked out.
I asked them to pick any card (forced), show it is to all except me, and put the card in the deck and put the deck back into the box.
Then they were to tap the card box on the Amazon Echo.
I then asked Alexa to name the card they selected. And she did.
All I heard was " No Way" from all in the room.
This can be customized to do predictions as well as other tricks.

I have Amazon Echo, but did not know that Alexa could be programmed to respond in this manner.

I assume she was somehow told to respond with the name of your force card upon command, e.g. when asked for it.

But how? (I'm sure I'm only using a fraction of her full functionality anyway, much of which I probably don't even suspect exists....)
For a supernatural chiller mixing magic (prestidigitation, legerdemain) with Magic (occultism, mysticism), check out my novel MAGIC: AN OCCULT THRILLER at http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Occult-Thriller-Reed-Hall/dp/1453874836

I have the Echo Dot.
I also can use only a small percentage of its' functionality.
The skill to customize it for doing magic tricks (as well as many other things) can be found at

I've been working on some software development projects with Alexa and developed 2 magic tricks.

Card Finder - An Amazon Alexa card trick that will reveal two selected cards.

With Card Finder, I explain how folks are apprehensive about these smart devices as some think Alexa is listening into their conversations.
Alexa doesn't need to bother with that since she can read minds. A demonstration follow with selecting one or two cards.
If you can force 2 cards, you're on your way to performing Alexa miracles!

Card Statistics Magic Trick - If you are a fan of Simon Aronson's Random Sample Shuffled-Bored, then you'll enjoy this Alexa enabled variation.
https://www.amazon.com/AMAKAR-LLC-Statis......916KHS4/

The Card Stats skill will also return a random fact about playing cards.

Hope you find them useful!
