The ability to speak to an assistant and have bothersome tasks handled in a timely efficient manner will revolutionize many household tasks. From ordering the toothpaste to the dinner, the potential for a “Voice Assistant” to simplify our daily lives is only at the beginning.
Right now, Amazon Echo family dominates the voice assistant market. Alexa has 40x more skills than Google assistant, the largest competitor to date, and Alexa’s built-in voice capabilities are being integrated by other companies into their devices at a very fast pace.
Skills are voice-driven capabilities that enhance the functionality of your Alexa devices. For example, you can enable skills that allow Alexa to play math and trivia games with you, or tell you about upcoming concerts in your city.
You can search for and enable skills in the Alexa app or from the Alexa Skills store on the Amazon website.
If you know the exact name of the skill you want, you can say, “Enable [skill name] skill.”
