Universal Production Music has launched an Alexa Voice Skill to provide its clients with a way to search for and discover music across the company’s catalog.
Universal Production Music claims to be the first production music company to use voice assistant technology in this way.
The Alexa Voice Skill taps into Universal Production Music’s search engine, enabling users to discover and listen to more than half a million quality tracks.
Using voice commands, users can now find music by saying, “Alexa, ask Universal Production Music to…” followed by any audio request such as: play relaxing piano; play a specific track, album or genre; and beyond.
The Universal Production Music Alexa Voice Skill is available via the Alexa Skills Store through the Amazon.com website.
The app can be downloaded and used on any Amazon Alexa-enabled device, including Amazon’s own Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show and other third-party speakers powered by the smart assistant.
“Voice command technology has surged in recent years, with a Gartner study estimating that nearly 30% of all browsing session in 2020 will include voice search.”
