“Alexa, order me a new set of Copic Markers.”

“Alexa, play some funky accordion music.”

“Alexa, what’s a good Chinese take-out place near me?”

“Alexa, define cephalopod.”

No matter what you use it for, Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service has proven to be one of the most convenient new interfaces of our time. From re-ordering studio supplies to quickly calling a client, Amazon’s voice interface system can be extremely powerful when used to its full potential.
