List of new Alexa Skills and features announced by Amazon
Amazon Echo devices, the Amazon Echo Dot, Echo Plus as well as the Echo Sub are up for pre-order on Amazon.in.
Amazon has recently announced its new range of Alexa-powered devices including the Echo Dot, Echo Plus and Echo Show and more. The company has also announced a whole new bunch of skill sets for the Alexa which shows how intelligent the voice-assistant has become. Apart from the new Amazon devices and skill sets Amazon has also introduced some new developers' tools.
As for the availability of the new Amazon Echo devices, the Amazon Echo Dot, Echo Plus as well as the Echo Sub are up for pre-order on Amazon.in, whereas, the Echo Dot and Echo Plus devices will begin to ship from October 11th and Echo Sub will be available from November 14th. As we mentioned above that Amazon has also released a myriad of new skills for the Echo devices. The new skill sets will be available from later this year and range from security to entertainment.
This skill set gets activated once a user leaves his/her house and some Echo devices will be able to listen to the noise of glass breaking or the smoke detector going off and then send alerts to the user's device.
This skill not only allows a user to set location and time-based routines, but also set Alexa to perform a set of tasks when it detects any change in the temperature or when it senses any motion. Users can also set reminders which will be triggered when they arrive at home or at work.
Easy Wi-Fi Setups:
With this skill the Alexa can connect the selected Amazon devices to a Wi-Fi network with the help of just a voice command. Users can also connect to the Wi-Fi network via Alexa app, all they need to do us scan a barcode to add new devices to their network.
Echo Stereo Pairing & Preferred Speaker
With this skill set users will be able to connect two Echo devices together so that they get a left-right stereo experience. In order to use this skill set users will need to have two same models of the Echo devices. Users will also be able to set an Echo device or any Alexa enabled speaker as a default speaker.
This skill set allows a user to link Gmail, Hotmail, or Outlook to the Amazon Alexa app. This further allows the virtual assistant to read out the user's messages and also allows them to send out replies using Alexa. This feature will surely help the users to reply to an email without any hassle.
The FreeTime feature was announced recently and now Amazon has introduced Kid Routines which combines a set of actions such as saying goodnight, turning off these lights and also set alarms and others.
This skill is used to adjust Alexa's suggestion based on a user's day-to-day habits. This skill can further detect when the lights or connected smart devices are turned off and suggest the users to turn on the lights.
Local Voice Control:
This skill can work offline and still turn on the devices connected in the smart home. When in local voice mode Alexa doesn't have the ability to answer the queries, stream content or even search for the products.
This skill will notify the users when new albums or tracks of the artists which they are following is released.
This is an interesting skill where upon whispering a command or request to Alexa the users will get a response back in whispers.
