Sorry for the two week delay! Usually send this out on Fridays but I’m releasing today because…wait for it..my Alexa skill is on ProductHunt. Please give it a quick upvote!
Seriously. Please click that. I’ll Wait.
Okay, Thanks! Now onto voice news. Lots going on, especially around voice & audio monetization, so this edition is all about the $$$. The main takeaway for me is that the monetization layer is still very unstable – Amazon is blocking any skills from serving ads, Burger King purposely used “OK Google” in a TV ad to wake up devices, and ABC and Huffington Post are looking at how to insert audio ads on the Echo & Google Home.
