Amazon recently introduced their voice assistant Alexa to IOS devices through Amazon’s main shopping app, enabling users to access the voice assistant’s features anytime and anywhere.
Alexa responds to voice commands to shop, check delivery schedules, play music, answer questions and offer weather, traffic, and other real time information.
Amazon had an early lead in the voice assistant market, introducing Alexa in 2014 and featuring more than 10,000 skills. Until now, Alexa was only accessible through Amazon Echo smart speakers. The online retail giant has now advanced to challenging smartphone voice assistants, like Apple’s Siri.
