After the news of the launch of the Amazon Alexa digital assistant service in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in Arabic and the Gulf dialect, questions increased about this wonderful service that dispenses with touch and allows you to perform many things in your home via voice request only. Most people in the Arabian Gulf have heard of Amazon Alexa, the ubiquitous digital assistant from the retail giant, Amazon. However, not everyone may be aware of the extent of Alexa's abilities, or even what they are.
Alexa, a cloud-based artificial intelligence service, is designed to mimic real-world conversations, but it's much more than a talking partner. Alexa can provide information like news and weather, help power your smart home, play music and Quran with your favorite reader, and even make online purchases. All of this can be done through voice control, so you can keep your hands and eyes free, without having to go to any place near the screen. With voice recognition, Alexa can connect to connected devices that have a microphone and speaker – just start talking and Alexa will respond. You can "wake up" Alexa with one of the following keywords: "Alexa", "Amazon'' or "Echo", and then start asking for what you want.
So what is Alexa, the Amazon digital assistant, we're talking about? If you are interested in knowing this, you have come to the right place. Read on for information, tips, and guides that explain everything you need to know about Amazon Alexa.
