- more from voicemetrics…this is really cool. they just released a feature that allows you to define names for any data element in any cell of any Sheet, or Slack Channel, and then “just ask” for the value.
- Conversational Time Tracking. For lawyers & such.
- Well actually, it’s just called “The Podcast App.” It has a heavy emphasis on discovery with “Popular” and “Topics” categories. They’ve also made episode specific search.
> Destiny 2
- now has a companion Alexa skill that is, apparently very well done. Gamers to talk with the game’s A.I., “Ghost” asking it to manage inventor, equip, change armor, call for backup, etc. All actions are reflected in the gamer itself (I think…I’m not a destiny2'er).
> Jim Beam’s Smart Decanter
- I wasn’t sure whether to put this in the “to try” or “newz” sections, but Jim Beam’s intelligent decanter may, as they put it “not be as smart as Amazon Echo, Google Home, or Apple Homepod, but it pours shots of bourbon whiskey.”
> Echo Buttons
- Amazon is billing this as “A new way to play games through your Amazon Echo”. This is a really cool angle on how interacting with voice products could change.
