Now you can create personalised responses for Alexa

Amazon on Monday released “Alexa Skill Blueprints” allowing users to create personalised skills and responses for its voice-based assistant Alexa in India.

Users need to select their blueprint template from “Alexa Skill Blueprints” website, where they can also browse through 30 “Skill Blueprints” across four categories including “Fun and Games”, “Learning and Knowledge”, “At Home” and “Storyteller”, the company said in a statement.

“Personalised skills and responses make Alexa even more knowledgeable, delivering a delightful experience that is unique to you and your family,” Dilip RS, Country Manager, Alexa Skills, Amazon India, said in a statement.

The skills and responses users create with the feature would be made available instantly on the devices associated with their accounts.

“Alexa Skill Blueprints” is now available for the Indian users.
