Alexa built-in is a category of devices created with the Alexa Voice Service (AVS) that have a microphone and speaker. You can talk to these products directly with the wake word “Alexa,” and receive voice responses and content instantly. Alexa built-in products work with Alexa skills and Alexa-compatible smart home devices, bringing familiar capabilities from the Amazon Echo family of devices to a range of new form factors and use cases developed by leading brands.
The Alexa Voice Service 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 devices with Alexa built-in 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 device and add support for a growing assortment of compatible smart home devices. Build with AVS, and become part of the Alexa family.
