I am happy to announce I have joined Amazon and will be evangelizing to developers around the world regarding Alexa – the voice behind devices such as Echo, Dot, and Tap. It is hard to imagine a future that doesn’t allow people to freely engage with things in their environment by naturally talking. As such, I am thrilled to be at the dawn of this new voice-interactive era, and look forward to sharing how developers can get involved!
While I will be evangelizing all things Alexa, my primary focus will be in the Smart Home capabilities Alexa has to offer. Imagine the possibilities of walking in a room and saying:
Alexa, dim the lights
Alexa, lower the temperature
The above is possible now. What else? Have a voice-interactive idea you wish would come true in your home? Want to see it become a reality? Tweet me at @palermo4 and use the #AskAlexa tag to start the conversation!
