Users can now create their own personalised Alexa Skill

Amazon has introduced Alexa Skill Blueprints, a new way to create personalised skills and responses for Alexa. 

“Alexa Skill Blueprints is an entirely new way for you to create personalised Alexa Skills just for you and your family,” said Kate Burleigh, Australia and New Zealand Country Manager, Alexa Skills.

“You don’t need experience building skills or coding to get started - my family created their own jokes skill in a matter of minutes, and it has been fun to interact with Alexa in this new and personal way.” 

Using Alexa Skill Blueprints is as easy as filling in the blanks. Users can customise responses to questions like “Alexa, what is the best city?" or “Alexa, who has the best sense of humour?” Users can also use Skill Blueprints to create an interactive adventure story with their child as the lead character.

The skills and responses created with Alexa Skill Blueprints will be available instantly on the devices associated with a users account.
