Amazon Alexa - Recognizes Different Voices & Gives Different Reponsesma

Amazon says its Alexa digital assistant is ready for the office

What's more, companies can even build their own custom skills that integrate with their own IT applications and office system.

Alexa for business supports an extensive list of new skills and integration from popular enterprise firms like Salesforce, Concur Solutions, SAP SuccessFactors, Splunk, Acumatica, Teem, Twine and Polycom with the aim to extend the virtual assistant's functionality to suit the work environment. Also announced is the Limited-Edition Destiny 2 Ghost, a WiFi enabled Ghost speaker which is compatible with Alexa devices to bring the look and sound of the Ghost from inside the game into the real world.

"Alexa for Business brings the Alexa you know and love into the workplace to help all types of workers to be more productive and organized on both personal and shared Echo devices", said Tara Walker of Amazon Web Services in a blog post.

"Alexa, ask ghost to equip my best weapon".

To help customers easily voice-enable their offices, Alexa for Business includes the tools to set-up and manage Alexa devices, enroll users, and assign skills at scale.

EXPLORE THE DESTINY 2 UNIVERSE: Ask and receive unique dialogue lines that will expand your knowledge of the Destiny 2's worlds and characters you'll encounter on your journey. You can ask Ghost to equip your most powerful weapon, by saying "Alexa, ask Ghost to equip my most powerful weapon", or "Alexa, ask Ghost about Cayde-6" and Nolan North (voice of Ghost) will respond back. One example provided is, "Alexa, ask Ghost who are the Red Legion?" and "Alexa, ask Ghost what I should do next". Pricing on the Ghost is $89.99USD and will be released on December 19th.

The announcement marks the latest push for Amazon in expanding its cloud-based computing offerings, which tie into the Alexa-powered devices.

Developers can configure Alexa for Business skills for flash briefings and control smart devices.

What do you guys think about turning your Echo device into Ghost? BUT the LEDs light up when it talks to you, so that's neat.
