Alexa voice will now be available on iOS and Android apps
Amazon is launching a new feature for its Alexa Voice Assistant app.
According to The Verge, the vision for the lexa app is to allow the users to ask Alexa for assistance using their voice. Alexa has already been launched but in a preview form, which means Amazon has started working with developers on how they can use it
. A user can ask Alexa to open Twitter and look for a hash tag or start recording a video on Tik Tok, which can be helpful when the person is filming themselves. It will help people find music and recordings
Amazon wrote on their website that, “ Now you can enable mobile customers to quickly get key content and functionality in your app, just by asking Alexa. It’s easy to add voice- powered deep links to your custom skill which connect to your iOS and Android Apps,’’ they wrote.
“ Alexa for apps works in mobile apps with content that can be opened through deep links, and it can be utilized by adding Alexa for Apps to custom skill, but developers will need to apply to the program to add the feature to their apps,’’ they added.
iOS user Zininzi Cele said she is excited to see and use this new feature. “ I think it is a good idea because, it will help us iOS users for more than the Siri virtual assistance, it is exciting to try out and see how everything goes,’’ she said.
Android user Aphiwe Ndlovu mentioned that he looks forward to this Alexa App as it will help him discover songs he does not know of.
“ Sometimes it’s so frustrating to not find a song you like because you do not know the artist, hopefully Alexa will help us to now discover new songs on wherever and whenever,’’ he said.
The new Alexa App has an advantage compared to Siri and google assistant because it available to all smart phones.
