The same software that powers The Grand Tour Alexa skill.

For Alexa users in the US and UK, watching The Grand Tour is only half the fun. Each Thursday, prior to the show’s Friday airtime, The Grand Tour skill gives clues to users about the upcoming episode. On Saturday, if users answer three trivia questions correctly, they’ll unlock exclusive video content. The skill features recorded dialogue from the cast: Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May.
