WHAT IS ALEXA?
With Alexa, you can ask to play music, hear the news, check weather, control smart home devices, and more. Alexa lives in the cloud, so it’s always getting smarter, adding new capabilities that are delivered to your device automatically. Using Alexa is simple and hands-free – just ask, and Alexa will respond instantly.
More information about Alexa Voice Service (AVS) can be found from AVS Developer portal.
