Amazon says voice aide Alexa ready for the office

Amazon's Alexa goes to work

Activision and Amazon have released a new "Destiny 2 Ghost Skill" for your Alexa in-home assistant that lets you complete in-game tasks and answers questions for you.

Bungie and Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. As an intelligent assistant at work, Alexa for Business makes starting a conference call as simple as asking Alexa to "start the meeting." . According to an AWS blog post, Alexa for Business customers can control maximum 25 devices at a time, including things such as room profiles and skills groups.

Overall, the product listing says that buyers will need to have the Destiny 2 Ghost Skill, the game, the Alexa app, any Alexa-enabled hardware, such as an Echo, and, of course, a WiFi connection. You can ask Ghost to equip your most powerful weapon, by saying "Alexa, ask Ghost to equip my most powerful weapon", or "Alexa, ask Ghost about Cayde-6" and Nolan North (voice of Ghost) will respond back.

As reported by Polygon, "Destiny 2" can now accept hands-free voice commands, made possible by the Amazon Alexa voice assistant. "Gaming is an example of where voice can create a more engaging experience in a natural and delightful way for customers".

The announcement marks the latest push for Amazon in expanding its cloud-based computing offerings, which tie into the Alexa-powered devices. Rather than interrupting gameplay to navigate menus, players can just ask Ghost through Alexa to help with certain tasks. Overall, the product listing states that Destiny 2 Ghost has more than 1,000 custom lines. It can also be used to access different applications within the company through Alexa Skills Kit.

Before long, Alexa will be able to carry on a regular conversation. The device, which is a limited edition model, gives Destiny 2 fans a way to interact with Ghost, including exploring the game's universe and using voice commands for equipping loadouts. The Ghost speaker will be available for $90 starting on December 19th. The device is compatible with the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
