Voicify Offers States Free Software to Set Up Amazon Alexa And Google Assistant Voice Apps
Voicify is offering the Voicify Conversation Experience Platform for free to all U.S. state governments during the coronavirus outbreak.
Knowing that states likely do not have a team of voice administrators on staff, Voicify is working with them to set up their voice apps (Amazon Alexa skills and Google actions), usually withing two days or less.
"Initially we were in contact with group of state HHS departments interested in communicating with their citizens about the pandemic," said Robert Naughton, chief revenue officer at Voicify, in a statement. "It was the right thing to do to offer them the platform at no cost and an easy decision to extend the offer to all state governments."
Speech vendors will work with Google Assistant teams to address challenges related to voice and artificial intelligence.
Merrell's Voicify-powered mobile apps help users to find hiking trails just by asking their voice assistants.
