Amazon has begun rolling out Alexa, its artificial intelligence voice assistant, on Apple’s iPhone via its main shopping app.
The voice assistant is able to shop and track packages, it can also do most of the things Alexa can do, like tell a joke, give weather updates. Users will be able to access to more than 10,000 skills.
We will soon see a surge in devices wanting to connect to ALEXA and be able to be manged using voice control. e.g: Roomba owners will be getting an Alexa skill soon to control their robot vacuums, and to encourage the creation of more skills, Amazon has extended free AWS credits to Alexa developers.
The free Amazon Alexa App is a companion to your Alexa device for setup, remote control, and enhanced features. It is designed for both iPhone and iPad.
Alexa is always ready to play your favorite music, provide weather and news updates, answer questions, create lists, and much more. Alexa’s brain is in the cloud, so she continually learns and adds more functionality over time. The more you use Alexa, the more she adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences.

Interactions with Alexa are automatically mirrored visually on your Amazon Alexa App, providing more information as you want it. The Amazon Alexa App lets you easily manage your alarms, music, shopping lists, and more — wherever you are.
