Well this is exciting. Amazon has released a beta of the Gadget Skills API for developers to start implementing Echo Buttons into skills.
To date Amazon has only released 20 or so “skills” which are all basic games for the Echo Buttons, and at CES last year Amazon had said that non-game skills would be coming. Well allowing 3rd party developers access is one way to get that going.
I am pretty excited about this as I need more uses for my Echo Buttons. What are your thoughts about an open API for the he Echo Buttons? What would you want to see them used for? Let me know in the comments below.
I am passionate about the IoT and connected devices. Using connectivity to automate our lives will empower civilization to achieve greatness.
