Amazon introduces the Alexa for Hospitality this week with Amazon and its said hotel partners all outfitting hotel rooms with Amazon Echo which is Alexa-enabled.
The Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Plus will be among what Amazon is bringing to hotels that they have partnered with. Marriott has reportedly signed up as a particular launch partner. Soon, hotel customers will reportedly be able to connect their very own Amazon account as well, according to the story by Vice.
What does an Amazon Echo do?
This will allow users to call their own personal contacts, play their all-time favorite music, and even listen to certain Audible audiobooks. The Alexa for Hospitality could be great news since it would allow people to more efficiently and also more comfortably access the Amazon Echo services.
People will also be able to transfer their very own preferences and behaviors from the comforts of their home to the comforts of their hotel room. This will soon allow the hotel to be an extension of people’s homes. Well, the good parts at least.
Is Alexa dangerous?
People will reportedly be able to use the Alexa for them to order Room Service or even find out about the local weather or anything that they might usually need to ask a hotel front desk for information. This could be a huge move for Amazon as they will be able to expand their customer data even more.
For Amazon, this would expand its scope from being able to collect reading, shopping, and even viewing habits for them to include travel information as well as hotel room requests. Previously, some hotels might have actually had access to certain pieces of this date through vendors or their very own phone logs, but still not nearly in complete narratives of what actually happens when a customer would occupy a room.
Is Alexa always listening?
With Amazon Echo access to Alexa data, depending on customer usage, hotels will be able to combine certain collected data along with cable, minibar, as well as other data. This would result in a deeper profiling for their customers. Consumers can also now use hotel credit cars where hotels would be able to understand their client’s buying patterns.
Amazon Echo, although can be quite a touchy subject for some, when used correctly can make everything function much easier by remembering schedules for you, playing your own music, and even helping you make. For those that don’t have the Amazon Echo Dot, another option would be a Amazon Echo Show which would allow you to experience the true benefits of how Alexa can make your life much easier.
