New Skill Blueprints for Amazon Alexa

Techstination feature for Monday, April 30, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Some new blueprints for Amazon’s smart speakers.    If you thought Alexa was pretty great before….wait until you try out the new Skill Blueprints.     For instance you can customize Alexa with the Babysitter blueprint…..filling out info so a sitter can simply ask Alexa for help…

“You can ask about schedules, allergies, medicines, how things work, where to find things, emergency contacts or special notes.  What would you like?    Where are the diapers?    In the nursery closet.   Check the bottom left shelf.  What else would you like to know?   That’s it.”

You can customize games, stories, create spelling list quizzes and a whole lot more.   The skill blueprints unleash the power of Alexa in a whole new way…and are bound to increase the popularity of the devices even more.
