Alexa is Amazon’s Cloud-based Voice Service that is accessed through Amazon Echo. The Echo is a device that helps in speech recognition to perform an ever-growing range of tasks on the command that is called the built-in brains of this device "Alexa". It constantly learns from human data or we can say Data and machine learning are the foundation of Alexa’s power. Alexa for business use cases is, therefore, only getting stronger with an increasingly high amount of data collected from customers.
Backed by machine learning, we at Oodles, as an established Chatbot Development Company, explore how Alexa’s voice-activated user interface is strengthening rapidly.
Alexa provides Skills that allow users to interact or communicate with the devices. Alexa Skills help to do many things like they can answer questions, play games, play music, tell stories, play videoes, and many more. It is like an application that can be installed on our smartphone or tablet. Skill is the voice-driven Alexa application and capabilities or we can say Skills are the interface between users and Alexa and that makes it work.
It is the first generation Alexa device with plug-in power supplies at all times in order to work that supports cloud-based voice service and offers a hands-free listening experience. It's bass response is limited and treble is not as clean either as compared to Amazon Tap and DOt.
Dot is a smaller version of the Amazon Echo without the speaker but we can connect the external speakers. It has a micro-USB port and a 3.5 mm port to plug in an external speaker. It also required plug-in power supplies at all times in order to work.
This one is a portable device with an easy-carry design means we can take the device anywhere we want because it is fully portable and shorter and slimmer than the Echo. It is integrated with inbuilt battery supplies and powerful dual-stereo speakers which offers a better sound quality.
Alexa is a highly interactive Artificial Intelligence program that can help to create a customizable living experience while also connecting other household devices to its central system. It is built based on natural language processing and a procedure of converting speech into words, sounds, and text. With the help of Alexa we can communicate using our voice, can listen to favorite songs, make shopping lists, set alarms, check weather and traffic updates, among various things which can be performed using our voice.
