Alexa Skills’ first debut in the United Kingdom

by | May 31, 2019 | IoT Companies

Two weeks ago, Amazon announced the very first batch of the exclusive Alexa Skill. According to the sources, the Alexa skill in the United Kingdom will offer the users with a superior quality experience.

At the beginning of March, Amazon declared that the company would circulate “in-skill” purchases in the United Kingdom. By the looks of it, Amazon skills is more like the app purchases. However, it would allow developers to unlock one-time subscriptions or payments for accessing premium content for an utterly limited time-frame.

This ability will enable the developers to monetize their Alexa skills and in the meantime, incentivize them for creating more exceptional experiences. The tech geeks around the world are waiting to see what the Alexa skills will offer to them.

The e-commerce giant also invited a few partners for gaining early access to the in-skill purchases by providing them with a few features of Alexa Skills Kit:

1- Vocala’s Deal or No Deal: The Alexa Kit provides an opportunity to become a contestant of the TV Show called Deal or No Deal. The TV show features Noel Edmonds. The Amazon skills offer a one-time purchase with the price-tag £2.99.

2- Musicplode Media Ltd’s Beat the Intro: It is the ultimate music game for all of the music fans across the world. With Amazon Skills, the users get a free 3-song per day challenge along with one free full-game from the selected packs. The unlimited version of Beat the Intro is available at £2.99/month.

Alexa Skills Kit also offers services like Innovative Language Learning’s Daily Dose, Hero Software’s Burglar Deterrent and lastly, Vocal’s Tenable. Amazon is going to build a robust library for the Alexa devices gradually. Contrarily, Amazon will also expand the Rewards Program based on Alexa Developer to some countries and introduce new categories.
