PlayersVoice has launched their first Alexa skill to coincide with the launch of Amazon’s all-new Echo Show.
Australian sports lovers will now have the opportunity to not only hear and watch sports news and scores via Amazon Alexa, but also raw, rich first person stories from their favourite athletes.
All consumers with an Alexa-enabled device are now able to listen to and watch PlayersVoice stories from elite athletes in key sporting disciplines.
The skill enables consumers to enjoy inspiring, insightful PlayersVoice stories and podcasts when using an Alexa-enabled device, along with rich imagery and video for those with an Echo device with a screen.
Amazon Alexa Skills country manager Kate Burleigh expressed excitement in providing a new skill that offers the relatability and depth of experience that PlayersVoice has become renowned for.
“We’re excited to expand the ways in which Alexa can connect customers with their favourite athletes and sports.
“And with PlayersVoice, there’s no better way to get closer to the personal stories that matter most to them.
“All customers have to do is ask Alexa to open PlayersVoice and the sounds and stories of Australia’s leading athletes will come to life.”
