TROY — WEYV, an app platform developed by Troy’s Altair Engineering Inc. that features music, magazines, e-books and more, announced its new WEYV skill for Alexa, Amazon’s cloud-based voice service.
Using the skill, WEYV on Alexa is simple and hands-free – once enabled, voice commands like “Alexa, ask WEYV to play Top of the 90’s playlist,” are available and Alexa will respond instantly.
“As consumers are increasingly utilizing Amazon Alexa as part of their daily rhythm, it was important for us to build a skill for Alexa to make our users’ music accessible hands-free,” said Stephanie Scapa, CEO of WEYV.
Owners of the Amazon Echo or related devices can open the Amazon Alexa app on their mobile devices, select Skills from the menu, and search for “WEYV.” Then select it from the search results, tap “enable” and login to WEYV.
WEYV is available as an ad-free, subscription-based app that allows users to listen to music, read magazines and e-books, and (soon) watch visual content. WEYV is available on iOS and Android devices and via a web player for U.S.-based users.
