NEW AWS Alexa Skill – Get it NOW!
Whether you’re looking for compute power, database storage, content delivery, or other functionality Amazon Web Services (AWS) has the services to help you build sophisticated applications with increased flexibility, scalability and reliability. To help keep up with AWS’s pace of innovation, you can now hear the latest launch announcements from AWS on your Alexa-enabled device, and even tailor the skill to the services that interest you most.
To get started, enable the AWS Skill and say, “Alexa, ask AWS what’s new.” By default, Alexa will tell you the past month’s news from all categories and services at AWS. If a particular service (e.g. Amazon Machine Learning) interests you, just say, “Alexa, ask AWS what’s new with Amazon Machine Learning.”

You can easily customize the results to only hear news about your favorite categories and services. When you hear something you like during playback, say, “Alexa, ask AWS to favorite that,” and she will add it to your list of favorites. You can also manually populate your favorites by telling Alexa, “Alexa, ask AWS to add [AWS] Lambda to my favorites.”

In addition to providing your daily AWS news throughout the year, this skill is also your go-to source for the latest services and features launched at major AWS events, like re:Invent.
