[RELEASE] Get Alexa / Google Home to do a speedtest

Here is a simple project to enable your Google Home or Alexa to perform a speedtest for you. This project requires:-

  • Raspberry Pi (any variant, test on V2 and Zero)
  • webCoRE
  • Echo Speaks / Cast API

Basically when you ask Google or Alexa to “check your internet”, it will trigger a webCoRE piston that will send a command to your raspberry pi to do a speed test using fast.com internet speed test. It will then send back the information to webCoRE on the result and using either Echo Speaks or Cast API, it will announce the speed of the internet.

For the step by step instructions, have a look at the below post:-
