About Alexa and Alexa for Business
Alexa, a virtual assistant developed by Amazon, is operated with voice commands and can do everything from controlling lights in a room and looking up recipes to recommending restaurants and setting reminders for important meetings.
Alexa for Business is designed to give organizations easy access to all of Alexa’s functions, including being able to manage all Alexa devices, enrolling users, and creating voice skills that can be shared privately within an organization. Alexa also allows users to make products controllable by voice command, which is also context-aware.
Alexa users can access Disruption Magazine by going to the Skill Store, searching for ‘Disruption Magazine,’ and then enabling it.
