Sounds like a pretty big hit idea, and now everyone can do it by using Amazon's Skills Blueprints for Alexa. New skills will be stored on the Blueprints site from which you can retrieve and edit them. The templates are organized into four categories: Storyteller, Learning & Knowledge, Fun & Games and At Home. Now, anyone can create custom Alexa skills even if they don't know how to code.
Now Amazon started with templates for houseguests guides, babysitter directions, trivia, compliments and stories, but the company will build out the Alexa Blueprint library.
For example, if someone studying for a test, with the Flashcards Blueprint, you can create a personalized set of questions and answers, natch and Alexa will deliver a voice-powered quiz.
Blueprints join a series of voice apps available for Amazon's Alexa, including flash briefings for news, smart home skills, and visual skills for Echo Show and Echo Dot.
Nowak thinks it could be very important that Alexa gains a screen, versus the audio-only nature of the "Echo" smart speakers from Amazon. The most ambiguous and easiest to play around with is the custom Q&A blueprint, which lets you program Alexa to provide a specific answer to a custom question. The skill will not appear in Amazon's skill store, nor will it be available on other Echo devices that are not linked to the account.
These custom responses can be created at blueprints.amazon.com, reports TechCrunch. All I was aiming for was to have Alexa remember the Wi-Fi password so I didn't have to ask my daughters (again).
The experience page dictates how the user will interact with the skill, and how Alexa will respond.
Once you've done that you can then pick from a variety of templates (aka blueprints) and begin crafting your own responses. Amazon says that Echo Spot Devices will ship to customers and be available at retailers beginning 26 April, 2018.
