Mr. Vocab has lots of vocabulary games which can help you in testing your vocabulary strength. I liked “tiny 20” very much which has 20 questions and one needs to answer with the correct option as fast as possible. You can compete with other players too. 😉
To start playing vocabulary games, say “play vocabulary games” to uncle Vocab.
Uncle vocab also helps in the revision of the words that you have learned or the words that you are weak in. So basically, it keeps a record of the words that you come across throughout the interaction with Mr. Vocab and lets you revise it whenever you want to revise. You may start revising the words you have learned by saying “Revise” to Mr. Vocab
If you want to know how many words you have learned or how many words you missed in a vocabulary test or a vocabulary game just say out loud “Summary” to Mr. Vocab.
Although the features bundled with Mr. vocab are good enough but the voice that Mr. vocab has got from Google is very weird, it sounds more like an alien, and is nowhere near Google assistant, Cortana & Siri.
Except his his voice, Mr. Vocab has got a lot of features to help you with building a strong vocabulary of English words.
