Alexa provides a wealth of benefits. There are more than 25,000 skills available for Alexa (a number that grows daily). You can think of an Alexa skill the same way you do an App for your Smartphone. Just as there is an App store, there is a skill store. However, the Alexa user doesn't have to download anything, a simple voice command makes the skill available. For instance, let’s say you want the CNN skill; you’d simply say, “Alexa, enable CNN.” A few seconds later, you have the CNN skill available to you. Our Voice constantly monitors skills coming to market that are most relevant to seniors and those with physical challenges.
Even if you already own an Echo, that's no problem. With more than 100 million Echo devices sold worldwide, it is one of the most successful products of all time. In fact, in its first year, Amazon sold more Echos that Apple sold iPhones in it first year. However, research shows people are not taking advantage of all the Echo has to offer, using less than 2% of it’s potential.
