Amazon Alexa Skill: Ask Alexa About Your Circle
Note: The Circle skill for Alexa is only available in the United States at this time. We're working on international support, so stay tuned!
Have an Alexa device in your home? With Circle Connections, you're able to pair Circle's magical parental controls and monitoring with the world's most powerful voice assistant.

Check out this help article for instructions setting it up, and this one for all the phrases that our skill currently supports like getting Alexa to tell you about BedTimes, OffTimes, Usage, and more!
IFTTT: Customize Your Circle's Behavior
IFTTT (If This Then That) allows various services to connect with a wide range of other services and applications, by meeting custom-defined triggers. We're proud to add ourselves to this ever-growing list of services! Now Circle can react when something occurs in one of your other favorite apps. You can make IFTTT applets that, when triggered, make Circle perform an "action" (like Pausing the Internet). See IFTTT's about page for further details on how this all works, and visit our support article here for instructions setting it up!
