Amazon’s Smart Home Ecosystem Keeps Growing With 20,000 Compatible Smart Devices… And Counting.
Alexa skills are essentially apps, which enable Amazon’s voice assistant to connect to hardware and software to perform certain tasks. Thanks to its open API, the list of compatible services and devices is growing by the day, too.
Some of Alexa’s music and audio skills include working with Spotify and Sonos. It can also get you the top rated music in the country with the Top Music Chart skill. When you feel like learning something, Alexa can play the Ted Talks for you. Alexa has something for the kids as well with Amazon Story Time, Science Buddy, Panda Rescue, and Draw It.
Alexa can give you the BBC News, The Daily from The New York Times, ESPN, Golf Channel, Big Sky, Cricket Info, and even Space Weather! Alexa will also help you sleep better with Ambient Sounds: Various and Sleep Sounds. It will also help you make your home smarter by letting you operate Nest Thermostat/Camera, Lifx, Philips Hue, August Smart Home, iRobot Home, and more.
Alexa can also make life healthier with Push Up Century Club, ALOP Pilates, 1-minute Mindfulness, and Zyrtec Daily AllergyCast.
