Smart home, news, shopping, entertainment, hospitality, marketing. These are only few of the domains where the impact of voice technology is already tangible and getting stronger and stronger.
We are at the beginning of a new technological era and Amazon is emerging as the platform leader. In addition to the millions of Echo devices sold, Amazon has created a huge ecosystem of third-party manufacturers building products able to connect with Alexa or directly integrating its AI.
Chances are that the next car you buy will have Alexa built-in as your personal assistant. You’ll pay for gas or EV charging through Alexa. Then, while walking down the street, you’ll be able to converse with Alexa through your headphones.
Amazon wants Alexa to be ubiquitous in the life of its customers - whenever and wherever they may be - and it’s making it happen.
Alexa is designed to respond to a number of different commands and user queries. It comes with a set of built-in capabilities: playing the radio, providing answers to general knowledge questions, pulling up the weather, setting timers, creating smart home routines, and so on.
Skills are for Alexa what mobile apps are for smartphones. They are applications made by third-party developers that allow users to access additional functions. Like mobile apps, Alexa Skills can be of any type: games, news, entertainment, smart home control, information…You name it.
We support our partners in all the stages of the voice product development, leading to the release of Alexa Skills.
Whether you already have your idea in mind and need help with the development, or you're just discovering what an Alexa Skill is, we can support your business to build a solid presence on the major voice platform.
We feel confident to support companies to build their Alexa Skills because we tried - and still do it - on our own skin.
We prototype, we code, we make mistakes, we fix, we get better at voice design and development every single day.
All of that helped us creating some of the most successful Skills available on the Italian Alexa Store. We are currently launching them in other countries and working on the development of new Skills.
Amazon just celebrated reaching 100.000 Alexa Skills available globally. It may seem a lot, but we’re still at the beginning of a new era. By way of comparison, think that the grand total of mobile apps available on the Google Play Store is close to 4 million.
If you got too late to the mobile game, now it’s your chance to be early at the voice party.
