The seemingly big addition is Amazon'sAlexa smart assistant. That'll change in early 2018, when Amazon broadly rolls out Alexa purchases and subscriptions. Today we are excited to introduce cooking capabilities as part of the Smart Home Skill API. They may also use the various Alexa skills available and suggest specific products when users are asking about something. This allows companies to set up voice routines for things like video conferencing, create their own private voice skills, and manage the Alexa commands that employees can use. Still, Canalys expects the market to experience a huge boost this year as hardware vendors, software developers, voice recognition providers and operators join the game, capitalizing on the growing consumer awareness of smart home and artificial intelligence. Instead of pressing multiple buttons to enable advanced microwave features, users can simply use their voices.
First, the updated Smart Home Skill API will support microwave ovens. For example, a customer can say "Alexa, defrost three pounds of chicken" or "Alexa, microwave for 50 seconds on high".
The functions won't work with existing microwaves, so manufacturers will have to build new smart ovens to support Alexa.
