"Alexa for Business" puts Amazon's voice assistant to work

Дек 01, 2017, 01:42

While the device looks just like the in-game Ghost, you don't need it to use the Ghost skill, just an Alexa device.

Amazon's business subsidiary, Amazon Web Services, has announced a new initiative to get companies using Alexa in the office. And if you'd like to blur the work-life balance a little more, you'll be able to access numerous same Alexa skills you use at home through Alexa for Business, he said. "You ask your environment to give you the right answer".

As elaborately detailed in a press release, Ghost Skill will let you execute a variety of functions in Destiny 2 through the simple use of your voice. With the Destiny 2 Ghost Skill, Destiny 2-specific questions can be asked, ranging from about your specific game to questions about the lore of the series.

For big fans of Ghost and Destiny 2, Amazon is releasing a physical version of Ghost that works with your Alexa-powered device for $90 on December 19. It's a limited-edition item and it won't be available until next month. It's the first of its kind to integrate across multiple gameplay features of a video game, connecting you to the massive, exciting world of Destiny 2 in real life. On the one hand, Amazon gets added data and revenue from larger-scale customers and, on the other, enterprise businesses will likely hop on the platform to build APIs and skills for a new breed of customer. While I'm not sure if it's worth paying almost $90 for a Ghost speaker that requires an additional Alexa speaker to work, it'd be a pretty cool item to have around the house I suppose.

"Alexa, ask Ghost to equip my best Void weapon" - You can ask Ghost to equip your best weapon based on the power level of the your available weapons across all characters. The Ghost replica speaker is set at a $89.99 Dollars price tag and will be released on December 19.

The collaboration of Activision Blizzard and Amazon may pave the way more interesting technological integration in the future. The earliest pairings came with mobile devices, apps directly linked to games, such as the one by Nintendo.
