With previous experiences using Alexa dot at home, we were inspired to create a Google Chrome extension that can interact with Amazon Alexa using speech recognition.
What it does
- speech recognition friendly
- allows youtube to open up within the Google Chrome extension
- multiple commands within Amazon Alexa for users to interact with.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
- Trying to incorporate the AWS functions called Lambda into the Google Chrome extension
- Learned Amazon skill sets and lambda
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- Created a GUI and embedding it into the Chrome extension
- Created a user-friendly interface Youtube video player inside of the Chrome extension to watch a video without having to leave your current webpage
- Networking with peers and exchanging ideas to create a functional software
What we learned
- Learning Amazon skill sets to make our own custom interactions.
- Learning how to connect the database to the API
What's next for Alle
- Making the youtube video player to move inside and/or pop out from the chrome extension
- Adding more of a variety of Amazon skill sets using speech recognition to allow more functionality for users.
- Allow Alle to not only work in Chrome but in other browsers, as well as being desktop compatible.
- Goal: Hands free
