What Is an Alexa-Enabled Product?

Alexa Enabled is a category of products with built-in access to Alexa. You can talk to the device with the wake word “Alexa,” and receive voice responses and content instantly. Alexa-enabled products work with Alexa skills and Alexa compatible smart home devices and gadgets, bringing familiar capabilities from the Amazon Echo family of devices to a range of new form factors and use cases developed by leading brands.

Why Alexa Voice Service?

The Alexa Voice Service (AVS) enables you to access cloud-based Alexa capabilities with the support of AVS APIs, hardware kits, software tools, and documentation. We simplify building voice-forward products by handling complex speech recognition and natural language understanding in the cloud, reducing your development costs and accelerating your time to market. Best of all, regular Alexa updates bring new features to your product and add support for a growing assortment of compatible smart home devices. Build with AVS, and become part of the Alexa family.
