What is Alexa skill development?

While Alexa sits in speakers and answers our questions, we can also make it talk to our devices and get things done. For example, you can ask Alexa to talk to your AC and turn it On/Off. Now how did Alexa know to control your AC? This is made possible by developing what is called Alexa Skills. In the same manner, Alexa skill development can help you also to enhance your device productivity.

You can develop skills specific to different devices or services and make them operational through Alexa enabled speakers. Uber, for example, has opted Alexa skill development and made Alexa skills which you can use and make your speakers to book a cab for you!.
