Qualified AVS Solutions

Qualified solutions for Alexa Voice Service (AVS) provide pre-qualified building blocks for creating products that are Alexa Built-in (ABI). The world's leading OEMs feature ABI on their compatible devices, turning them into smart devices with expanded capabilities through Alexa. Customers can ask Alexa for help with everyday tasks, facilitate entertainment, control their smart home, and so much more.
