Amazon Enables Alexa Voice Skill Activation

A recent update gives Alexa users the ability to enable Alexa skills using only their voice. Prior to the update, either the web or the Alexa app was required to enable a skill.

What this means is that Alexa customers no longer need to pre-enable skills before using them.  Using any of the following examples will both enable a skill and then launch it…

  • “Alexa, open up Chineasy”
  • “Alexa, start up Chineasy”
  • “Alexa, launch Chineasy”

 

Alexa is available for Amazon devices Echo, Dot, Tap, Fire tablets, and Fire TV, but also on iOS, Android, and the web with Reverb.ai.
