Frequently Asked Questions :-

What is Alexa?

Today, you might watch TV, computer or mobile to know the news or weather before you step out. What if you could do the same by simply telling “Alexa, what is the weather?” or “Alexa, what is my flash briefing?”.
Alexa is Amazon’s cloud-based voice service available through Alexa enabled devices like Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Echo Spot and several other third-party devices. Alexa is built so that a user can ask questions and command actions in natural human-like conversation.
The goal of Alexa is to provide a more intuitive way to interact with technology in daily use, by using voice commands. One could control the temperature inside the house or switch-on the master bedroom light and more by just talking to the Alexa enabled devices.

What is an Alexa Skill?

Similar to a mobile app, Alexa Skill is an application built to perform certain functions based on voice commands. Unlike a mobile app, the skill is not downloaded to any device, rather, it is enabled on your Amazon account and used via the device.
The Skills (apps) ranges from ordering pizza, listening to news and music and more just by talking to an Alexa enabled device. There are thousands of skills currently available to perform various functions including controlling your smart home (switch on lights etc).
These skills are built by Amazon and third parties. Visit alexa.amazon.com to find skills of your need.
