Amazon is introducing a new way to create Alexa skills today, without the need for coding or technological skills. Alexa Skill Blueprints will allow the average home to personalize a variety of questions, with answers and personal answers that are separated from the routines. The idea is to make it very easy for anyone to create a skill or question / answer that will only run on their Alexa devices. This could be a personalized joke response to an Alexa question like "who is the best father in the world?", Alexa's ability to provide a set of instructions for the caregiver or babysitter, or pre-defined "burns" to roast your friends or father -consuegro.
"You do not need experience in skill development or coding to get started," says Steve Rabuchin, vice president of Amazon Alexa. "My family created our own joke ability in a matter of minutes." Amazon provides a set of templates for anyone to create these skills and personalized questions / answers. The templates include personalized questions and answers, answers designed for house guests, trivia games, jokes and even short stories that could also be particularly useful for bedtime stories when a parent works outside the home. That is a wide variety of templates applicable to many types of homes.
The personalized answers will be interesting
It is likely that personalized questions and answers are the most interesting feature for Alexa users, since now you have the possibility to make Alexa say what you want in response to a personalized question. That will open Alexa to some jovial responses, but also to the possibility of abuse. These personalized responses are limited to the Amazon account linked to the Alexa device, but that will not prevent people from posting funny and personalized Alexa videos in the coming weeks.
Alexa Skill Blueprints will be available initially in the US. UU Today, and Echo owners can begin to create customized responses with the templates available on the Amazon Alexa website.
