In the era of developing technologies, we know how IoT devices are connecting with each other in order to sense, communicate, interact, and collaborate. Voice enabled technology is a future and we have Alexa skilled developers that can work on both AWS lambda and custom environment for existing platforms.
Alexa provides a set of built-in capabilities, referred to as skills. For example, Alexa’s abilities include playing music from multiple providers, answering questions, providing weather forecasts, and querying Wikipedia.
The Alexa Skills Kit lets you teach Alexa new skills. Customers can access these new abilities by asking Alexa questions or making requests. You can build skills that provide users with many different types of abilities. For example, a skill might do any one of the following:
Technology has almost entered all living spaces. Smart home systems have gained popularity in terms of safety, security, comfort, and quality of life. Smart home skills by Alexa controls the status of cloud-connected devices through voice interaction.
Smart home devices like light control systems, home energy monitors, cameras, that already exist can also be described to Alexa, which then enables the functionalities and capabilities of it.
Our developers here have already worked on the voice experiences and skills using The Smark Home skill API, which works excellently with Alexa.
Alexa voice-controlled smart assistant is found in almost all devices including speakers, cars, and even on our phones. The wide range of Alexa skills has grown tremendously and we have more than 100,000 of the skills to choose from. The most popular and broadly used skill searched by users is Music Skills.
A music skill allows you to provide audio content such as songs, playlists, or radio stations for Alexa users. For this type of skill, the Music Skill API manages the words a user can say to request and control audio content and converts these sentences into requests that are sent to your skill.
This way Alexa helps you to listen to music from different services like Amazon Prime Music, Saavn and more. Users can always ask for songs based on genre, album or artist.
Child Directed Skills are created by keeping children in mind. These skills can only be used by kids under age 13, the skill for this age group follows different rules than other regular skills. It helps children to learn and also try to entertain them with different capabilities.
It is always difficult to create voice assistants for kids and so to create Artificial Intelligence algorithms, that makes designing for children more challenging.
As mentioned above more than 100, 000 Alexa skills are already available. So coming up with a better skill comparing with the already present skills, is a big concern. The skills you are creating should be useful and loved by users and for that, you need to understand different Skill Models to learn about other options like the Smart Home Skill API.
We specialize in creating custom Alexa products and can very much help you to work on the skills you want to develop and make it available on the Alexa platform. Also, we make sure the skill you plan to build complies with all of the Alexa Skills Kit content policies.
