One of Alexa’s most popular and highest rated skills, Question of the Day (QOTD) has more than 2.7 million users in eight countries around the world. Each day, QOTD poses a new trivia question, from arts and entertainment to literature and science. Users test their knowledge, improve their cultural literacy, collect points, and hear how others have answered.
Points help you determine the difficulty level of the question you are about to be asked. For example, if you’re told the question is worth 10 points, you now know that the question will be more challenging than normal and that few people answered correctly that day. If the question is worth, say, 2 points, the question will be much easier.
Your overall points total is just for fun. You can compare your total with your friends and family for a friendly competition.
Users in the United States can join QOTD’s Trivia Club, where they can participate in regional and national leaderboards. For more information on Trivia Club, see FAQ #6.
