If you ever wondered about having your own digital assistant to help you out in your daily activities, Amazon Alexa Echo is there for you. The company has launched a dedicated website Echosim.io for the users to test Echo simulation right on their browser – before you buy one.
“Echosim.io lives in your browser, so anyone; anywhere can access it and test their Alexa skills. You no longer need an Alexa-enabled device to test your skills. Developers worldwide can use Echosim.io to experience Alexa.”
As you need Alexa Echo to get assistance, Amazon has launched Echosim.io from an idea generated last year during the hackathon to show their users how it works. You can test Alexa’s Skill Testing Tool by simply going to the Echosim.io website, and you can access the webpage you have to log in with your Amazon account. From there, you simply click and hold the on-screen button and speak your command; Alexa will do the rest.
The digital assistant industry has become more competitive since Google launched Google Home at the I/O conference this year and Apple’s rumored upcoming Siri-powered device.
The voice and response times are identical to what you had experienced using the Amazon Alexa Echo. Once you remember Amazon Echo, you do not need to stay near your computer, and no need to press a button. Simply call out the requests across the room to the device.
