Hi all, I am in the early stages of beta testing an Alexa Skill, that I have written, and currently developing, to read out the latest Tigers News automatically.
I can invite anyone who is interested to try the Beta testing.
If you are interested then please PM me your email address.

Thanks - Tiggs.

If you don't have an Alexa device such as an Amazon Echo, or Echo Dot, then you wouldn't know.

Thanks but there is no money involved unless I can hook up with all of the Prem to provide a service officially.

Your reward will have to be the warm feeling inside you get when something works as it should then.

To explain, if you hear a news headline from Alexa and want to here more of it, then you go to the Alexa app on your device (mobile or tablet), and you can select "READ MORE" on the Home screen. Each story has it's own link.

If this Luddite understood, I'm sure they'd be impressed!

I'm sure there are many who will appreciate your efforts far more than me. And even more who know what all this high tech stuff is all about .....

Thanks all, I now have 140 users of the skill and up to 10 uses per hour in just 2 months since launch. Small start but that is to be expected, especially as the Tigers demo-graph does not lend itself to Alexa usage particularly, as Yorkie proves !!
