The travel company Skyscanner has created a voice-based search engine that will be integrated into Alexa, also known as Amazon Echo, a search service offered by Amazon.
Users will be able to talk to Alexa to research flight travel routes. Alexa will ask the user questions in a conversational format, allowing the search engine to filter travel routes to find the best route for the user.
Skyscanner says it is the first travel company to develop a search engine that can be integrated into Alexa.
A spokesperson from Skyscanner commented on the development, saying: “Voice integration is an important feature for the travel industry, and the digital world in general. Conversational integration is appearing in everything from wearables to cars to mobile apps, reinforcing that conversation and messaging are fast becoming mainstream.”
