Amazon develop Alexa for the workplace

Amazon say their Alexa voice assistant is ready for the workplace.

The electronic commerce company have launched a brand new piece of software, which allows the voice assistant to be used by businesses to keep in contact with their staff, for example.

Amazon's Chief Technology Officer Werner Vogels said at a summit to announce the new software, they said: "Meetings always start 10 minutes late [because of technology] ... If voice is a natural way of interacting in your home ... why don't we build something that you can actually use at work as well?"

And this is not the only things Alexa can do. It can also now play "baby making music" on command.

A new feature rolled out with the voice service allows you to ask for music to accompany various tasks including cooking, cleaning and eating, as well as play music to set the mood during intimate times.

You can say things like "Alexa, play sexy jazz music" as well as "Alexa, play classical music for sleeping" and "Alexa, play rap music for getting pumped".

However, if you're not sure what genre you'd like to listen to, Alexa will choose appropriate tunes for you if you say things like "Alexa, play baby-making music", "Alexa, play music for nap time" and "Alexa, play music for taking a bath".

The service works by using Amazon Prime Music, which is included with a Prime membership, and Amazon Music Unlimited and relies on Amazon's music experts to select and curate the playlists.

For those who haven't got it yet, Amazon Music Unlimited costs $3.99 or £3.99 a month for compatible Alexa devices.
