Amazon Echo, like most other AI based assistants can do the basic things such as answer a question, find out weather related info, traffic details, news, music etc. but the one thing that has made it extremely popular is the fact that the Amazon Echo integrates itself with a large number of third party applications extremely well.
Users can not only do the basic tasks of talking to the device and asking random information to it, but can also perform tasks such as booking an Uber, playing music via Spotify, ordering Pizza from Dominos, etc.
Amazon’s aim is to take Alexa to the next level, and move it beyond Amazon-owned products. The company released APIs and SDKs so that software and hardware developers could easily integrate it with their devices and software as per their individual needs. This is indeed a big step forward for Amazon.
