Alexa offers a glimpse into the future – a world where artificial intelligence has the capacity to entertain, inform, and control the devices and services we use every day. Today, customers want the ability to reach out to Alexa anywhere, presenting an interesting challenge to you. As you prepare to create devices with Alexa built-in, you'll first need to learn what's required, what’s accessible in the cloud, and how you can customize your device. Here’s where to begin your journey:
Different device types may require richer features to enable Alexa to express itself in the best possible way for the customer. We provide add-on capabilities, such as streaming media, graphical user interfaces, and proactive notifications to commercial device makers. These features require additional development work and testing to ensure the best user experience for end-customers.
Render visual content on your screen-based device, such as a “Now Playing” information for music and books, as well as visual displays for weather, To-Do and Shopping Lists, calendar updates, and skills.
Enable regional language models and content on your Alexa-enabled product to reach customers around the world. AVS enables customers to speak to Alexa in a variety of supported languages and regions.
