The city of Las Vegas is expanding the number of skills for Amazon’s voice-controlled digital assistant, Alexa.
The city has developed a suite of skills, which is available through the Alexa application, which can be found on a growing number of devices including Echo, the Dot and Show.
The skills include:
All of the skills use the phrase “Go Vegas” and are part of an effort to enable individuals to interact with the city anytime, while using technology they are already familiar with.
Several additional skills are in development and will be released over the next several months. Additional skills under development will enable city staff to use Alexa in their jobs to query systems for information that currently require them to use a computer to access.
To obtain the city’s skills for your device, launch the Alexa app and select “SKILLS” from the menu. In the search bar, enter city of Las Vegas. Select any of the six skills listed for the city, install and enable them.
