I’ve been working with autopo.st to develop some custom Alexa skills for Radio Stations. Amazon have been selling millions of their Alexa-enabled devices such as the Echo Dot and Echo Show and the device is capable of audio streaming, so we’ve been working on making this relatively new technology available to smaller online radio stations at a reasonable, affordable cost without the high development costs.
The final product is a cloud-based dashboard where users setup and configure their skills, the autopo.st team will develop and build the custom skill and publish it to the Amazon Skill store for the radio station. All of this for a small monthly fee and without the setup and development costs.
The dashboard allows stations to change their audio streams and view usage statistics for their skills.
