5 Star Service
The Amazon Alexa Voice Service allows you to play music, listen to information, news, sports scores, weather and much more!
Available via the companion products from Amazon - Echo, Dot & Tap - Alexa can access online music services from Prime, tunein, Spotify and others. It can even read you a bedtime story from your Audible library.
Being a Cloud based service Alexa is constantly updating and is continually learning, adding new functionality and skills. The more that you use Alexa, the more it adapts to your voice, the way that you speak and your personal preferences.
Alexa Skills add additional features to the service and are contributed by third party developers. Alexa can order your favourite takeaway, book a taxi, check your railway commute times and even update your energy provider meter readings - all without you having to lift a finger.
From a Home Automation perspective, Alexa brings integration with many Smart Home devices and systems out-of-the-box. There's support for Philips Hue, WeMo, Nest, Hive, Tado, Netatmo and the list is growing every day.
Now you can relax in your favourite arm chair and turn on the lights, turn up the thermostat and close the blinds while queuing up your favourite box set ready to stream to your TV. Just by using your voice!
