Linksys is starting down the path to voice AI by bringing Alexa support to its latest Smart Wi-Fi (the Velop, WRT, and Max-Stream families) routers. By enabling a new Alexa skill and linking the skill to a Linksys account, customers can immediately issue three voice commands:
- “Alexa, ask Linksys to turn on/off my guest Wi-Fi”
- “Alexa, ask Linksys what is my guest Wi-Fi password”
- “Alexa, Ask Linksys what is my Wi-Fi password”
Additional voice commands are coming.
