Why Build Alexa Skills?

Alexa is Amazon’s cloud-based voice service and the brain behind tens of millions of devices including the Echo family of devices, FireTV, Fire Tablet, and third-party devices with Alexa built-in. You can build voice experiences, or skills, that make everyday tasks faster, easier, and more delightful for customers.

Tens of thousands of developers have built skills using the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK), a collection of self-service APIs, tools, documentation, and code samples. With ASK, anyone can leverage Amazon’s knowledge in voice design to build quickly and easily. Start building today to reimagine your customer experience for voice and reach customers where they are.

Voice Is the Future

Entrepreneur Mark Cuban says developers, brands, and entrepreneurs should invest in building for voice in order to capitalize on Alexa’s reach. "Now’s the time to learn it. Now is the time to experiment with it. Now is the time to start using it,” Cuban says. “There's no future that doesn't have ambient computing or voice activation.”
