This Alexa skill solves the most annoying part of having guests over

I love entertaining. I love having friends over. But there’s something I can’t stand about it. Someone will inevitably ask for the Wi-Fi password, and I’ll have to dig out a slip of paper containing a cryptic list of letters and numbers. Honestly, I’d rather not bother.

With that in mind, thank god for Wiffy.

Wiffy is a dead simple Alexa skill. It does one thing, tell guests the Wi-Fi code. Its makers, New York start-up BetaWorks, envision it as a graceful way to avoid that awkward conversation. It also thinks it’s “perfect for shared homes, co-working spaces, AirBNBs.” Once enabled, just tell Alexa to “ask Wiffy what is the wifi password?”

You can get your hands on Wiffy here, and read more about it on ProductHunt. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be available in the UK, which is a shame.
