Volley, a voice game publisher, announced that it purchased exclusive licensing rights to all Sony Pictures Entertainment voice games for Amazon and Google smart devices including “Jeopardy!,” “Wheel of Fortune,” “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” and “Pyramid.”  

“Sony Pictures Entertainment is a major household name, and this licensing deal opens up the opportunity to reach a wider audience that may not have previous experience with voice games,” says Max Child, chief executive officer and co-founder, Volley. “Beloved game shows like ‘Jeopardy!’ are a perfect match for at-home gaming since they’re family-friendly and voice control is a natural interface for trivia competitions. We are excited to see the continued rise of voice games and their adoption into our everyday lives.” 

These voice apps will join Volley’s network of games and entertainment experiences on Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, alongside “The Price Is Right,” “Song Quiz” and “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader.” Volley also recently acquired Amazon Alexa game “Question of the Day” in a multi-million dollar deal. 

“At SPT, we’ve been invested in building voice games from the beginning," says Suzanne Prete, executive vice president, game shows, SPT. "Over the years, through Amazon Alexa and other platforms, our games have reached millions of people. Now we’re excited to work with Volley to hit even greater scale."

“Jeopardy!,” “Wheel of Fortune,” “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” and “Pyramid” are available on Amazon Alexa with “Jeopardy!” and “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” available for Google Assistant-enabled devices.
