“Alexa, is your Pebble Core integration available anywhere new?”
Today, thanks to our friends at Amazon, those in the UK and Germany can enjoy Alexa’s voice-enabled skills when Pebble Core starts shipping in 2017.
Amazon Alexa is a powerful, cloud-based service that makes everyday tasks a breeze with simple voice commands. Alexa has only gotten smarter and more useful with time, and its expansion into the UK and Germany is amazing news for folks in that region excited for Pebble Core.
Our engineering team is already building Alexa Voice Services (AVS) into Pebble Core, using Amazon’s Alexa Skill Kit (ASK). ASK makes up the tools developers use to expand what Alexa-enabled devices can do, from controlling smart home devices to telling you funny jokes.
“Voice integration has opened up countless opportunities for wearables, and it’s great to see Amazon bring the Alexa Skill Kit and Alexa Voice Services to developers in even more markets around the globe,” said Eric Migicovsky, CEO of Pebble. “At Pebble, we’re big fans of Alexa, and we’re excited to be working with Amazon to bring Alexa to Pebble Core, not only in the US, but now in the UK and Germany as well.”
