Amazon Alexa Is Easy To Set Up And Use. And With New Features It Is Getting Better All The Time.
Alexa can be used to answer questions, retrieve information, or communicate with the other devices in your house. Alexa uses “Skills” to get a job done. Skills are basically apps specifically built for the system. Alexa can stream from music services, set alarms, group devices, make calls, play games, and more. The latest Echo Show and Spot have displays connected to the security cameras. The company even has a smart microwave and oven that can connect to the speaker. Alexa devices don’t just come from Amazon’s factory.
You can also buy other devices which have Alexa built in thanks to Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service (AVS), a cloud-based service that provides APIs for third-parties to use to interface with Alexa.
Third-party companies provide new functionalities. Some popular options are Sonos One, Ecobee Switch+, Triby Smart speaker, and Garmin Speak.
New features expected from Alexa are Email integration, FreeTime, Alexa Hunches, Local Voice Control, Routines improvement, Multi-step requests, Business listings, and more. Alexa has many useful and fun skills, such as Amazon Story Time, Big Sky, BBC News, Spotify, and Ambient Sounds among many others. It is not very hard to add smart gadgets to Alexa or create groups with them. In fact, it is easy and makes life more convenient. You can even change Alexa’s accent!
