Announcements - what's happening in February 2019 (first two minutes of show):
- CPG and FMCG especially need to pay attention to the updates in Alexa: ISP (in-skill purchasing) just got a facelift in the Developer Console, making it easier to upsell. This is just getting started.
- Skills with very high conversion rates for upsell to premium version (34-50%!): Big Sky (weather) and Escape the Airplane (game)
- Voice in the car - HUGE opportunity (car is faster growing and has 60% higher MAUs than smart speakers)
- Today is like first gen iPhone: you can't multitask - only one app at a time
- Where we are with skills now: you can only do one thing at a time
- This will improve
- Voice is for EVERY brand
- Typing is unnatural, awkward, and slow. We are computing in computer-ese. Let's talk. We can speak and process so much faster than we can talk or read.
