Alexa Gets Even Smarter with New Safety and Entertainment Features
There’s no denying that Alexa has been the leading voice assistant on the market for some time now. At IFA, we learned that Alexa supports more than 50,000 skills around the globe. By comparison, the most recent Google Assistant information we could find show that the platform supports roughly 1,800 Assistant-specific applications.
Simply put, Alexa is one smart digital cookie (pun sort of intended).
That said, Amazon is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to continually improving the service. During its hardware event earlier this month, the company announced a ton of new Alexa skills alongside all of those new Echo device launches. The three key areas that the new skills seemed to focus on were convenience, safety, and entertainment.
