Amazon Alexa
Welcome to the Amazon Alexa community! to share projects and receive help.

If you’re a hardware maker and your connected device has a microphone and a speaker, the new Alexa Voice Service (AVS) developer preview enables you to add voice-powered experiences to your connected devices. Your customers can simply speak to Alexa through the microphone on your device and Alexa will respond through your device's speakers. This gives your customers access to Alexa's skills and capabilities, including built-in skills and those created by your or other developers using the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK). Examples of Alexa skills include the ability to answer general knowledge questions, provide weather forecasts, query Wikipedia and much more. 

It’s straightforward and free to add Alexa to your device using the Alexa Voice Service. Use AVS to extend your hardware’s capabilities and interact with your customers in new ways.
