After just a few selections, Amazon’s personal assistant will take care of the rest and create a unique tale.
Amazon is helping parents make the bedtime routine a little more fun with a unique feature for any Echo Show. Here’s what you need to know about Create with Alexa.
AI creates a unique story that comes to life
Any parent knows that bedtime can be tough. But Amazon announced the new Create with Alexa feature in a blog post which is designed to create the perfect tale.
Available on any Echo Show, the feature uses both conversational and generative AI to create unique stories with narrative, colorful graphics and background music. All of this is displayed on the Echo Show’s screen.
Designed for kids ages 4-8, all they have to do is say “Alexa, tell me a story.” There are a few other prompts to select from. They will choose a theme, such as space or underwater exploration. Next, it’s time to choose and name a character.
Finally, children will choose a color theme and select adjectives like silly. After that, Alexa will then create a story ranging from five to 10 lines.
Each of the stories is told in five unique scenes with sound and visual effects. Even if the same prompts are chosen in the future, the AI will make sure the story is different.
If the created story is successful, you can save it to replay it later or share it with others.
Parents can choose from a wide variety of free templates. It is only available in English and available in the United States. You can read more about the interesting science that powers the feature in another Amazon blog post.
While Alexa already has a ton of fun games for kids, Create With Alexa is a truly customizable way for kids to enjoy the Echo Show.
A fun way to enjoy bedtime
The Echo line of smart speakers, including Show models with touchscreens, continue to be popular with buyers. But Amazon has struggled to create new ways to use technology.
Create With Alexa gives parents and kids a great way to harness the Echo Show and AI for a bedtime story.
