    For a lot of us, Amazon's Alexa is always there for us to answer any burning question we may have.

    However, have you ever wondered what other people ask it? Well you won't be guessing much long as Amazon has now revealed Alexa's most-asked questions for 2023.

    Alexa worked with British Beano cartoonist, Nigel Parkinson, to create the first-ever Alexa Annual, bringing to life the year’s top questions in the style of a classic comic yearbook. The Annual captures some of the top questions posed by Brits, answered with Alexa’s signature wit and personality.

    “From the more meaningful, to the mundane and the downright quirky, ‘Alexa’s Most Asked Questions’ provides another fascinating snapshot of how customers in the UK use Alexa to learn, get help with tasks or ask for some quickfire entertainment” said Meryem Tom, Alexa UK & Ireland Country Manager.

    Seeing it was the year the Coronation was held, it's no surprise questions relating to the king ruled, with users asking: “Alexa, when is the King's Coronation?”, “Alexa, how old is King Charles?”, and “Alexa, how many birthdays does the King have?”. Meanwhile, “Alexa, long live the king” and “Alexa, sing the national anthem” also reigned among the top Royal-related utterances of the year.

    Elsewhere Box Office hits Barbie and Oppenheimer were amongst the top movie questions in 2023, as ‘Barbenheimer’ fever swept the nation and customers turned to Alexa asking: “Alexa, when did Barbie come out?” and “Alexa, what’s the Barbie movie about?”. For those who clearly didn't know whether they could handle a lengthy stint in the cinema, Alexa was on hand to answer “Alexa, how long is the Oppenheimer movie?”.

    Celebrities were high up on the list too, with Alexa users keen to learn more about their favourite famous faces, with “Alexa, how tall is Lionel Messi?”, “Alexa, what is David Beckham’s net worth?”, and “Alexa, who is Jennifer Lopez married to?” coming in as some of the top celebrity questions.

    From the Hollywood hills to the fields of Somerset, people also asked Alexa for insights on the legendary Glastonbury festival, with “Alexa, when is Glastonbury?”, “Alexa who is headlining Glastonbury?” and “Alexa, how old is Elton John?” coming in as some of the most asked questions.

    Eurovision enquiries were also rife too, including “Alexa, who won the Eurovision song contest?”, “Alexa, when is Eurovision?”, “Alexa, where is Eurovision this year?”, and for a surprise Alexa performance, “Alexa, sing your Eurovision song”.
