By Consultants Review Team Wednesday, 10 January 2024

Alexa, the highly acclaimed virtual assistant, has raised the bar by introducing three groundbreaking generative AI skills, pushing the boundaries of voice-activated technology and solidifying Alexa's position as a leader in the dynamic landscape of artificial intelligence. The surge of generative AI innovations, a prominent theme at CES 2024 from tech giants like Volkswagen, Nvidia, and Amazon, reinforces the ongoing evolution of AI capabilities.

Amazon has revealed three novel AI-powered Alexa skills - Character.AI, Splash, and Volley Games—now available to all Echo and Alexa users. These skills can be accessed freely through the Alexa Skills website and the Alexa app, showcasing Amazon's commitment to enhancing user experiences.

First in the lineup is Character.AI, designed to facilitate real-time conversations with various personas, ranging from historical figures like Socrates to practical advisors like fitness coaches and trip planners. Users can engage in dialogue to seek assistance and recommendations across diverse scenarios.

Next on the roster is Splash, a skill empowering users to create custom songs by specifying the genre (pop, romantic, electronic, rock, or hip-hop). Additionally, users can request Alexa to send a link to their smartphone to download their personalized compositions.

The third edition, Volley Games, offers an AI-driven twist on the traditional 20-question game. Leveraging generative AI, this skill engages users by posing questions, providing hints, and clarifying "yes or no questions" if players encounter challenges during the game. These advancements underscore Amazon's dedication to leveraging AI to enhance Alexa's functionality and entertainment value. With these skills, users can now delve into dynamic conversations, create personalized music, and enjoy interactive games, showcasing the transformative power of AI in voice-activated technology.
