What We Do

Devices and Services

Every day, we invent on behalf of our customers, partners, and communities. We combine devices and services in new ways to inform, entertain, and connect our customers—in their home or on the go. Our customers inspire us, and they’ve been at the heart of how we invent and evolve our products.

Alexa is a cloud-based service that powers devices like Amazon Echo, Echo Show, Echo Dot, Echo Dot with Clock, and more to come.

The Alexa service is always getting smarter, both for features and for natural language understanding and accuracy. Using Alexa is as simple as asking a question, and whether you are at home or on the go, Alexa is designed to make your life easier by letting you voice-control your world. Through a series of free, self-service public APIs, developers, companies, and hobbyists can integrate Alexa into their products and services and build new skills for Alexa. Currently, Alexa is compatible with more than 100,000 smart home devices.
