XAPPmedia co-founder and CEO Pat Higbie was featured yesterday in an interview titled, "How XAPPmedia is Helping Radio Win with Digital." By digital, Radio Ink means voice applications such as those found in Amazon's Alexa and Google Home. This technology shift provides an opportunity to bring radio back into the home.
Amazon published a new webpage earlier today that in part highlights XAPP’s proven expertise in building great Alexa voice experiences for brands and media companies. The Alexa Skill Builders and Tools announcement was designed to help organizations find experts to help with the paradigm shift to connecting with consumers by voice. We are proud to be a part of it.
XAPPmedia found a new voice in 2016 with the creation of our new Alexa skill development tools. We’ve helped a wide variety of clients, from authors to energy bar brands, find their own voice by developing custom Alexa skills for the growing voice web audience. We also expanded our interactive audio ad business with new deals in the U.S., Europe and Latin America. Read below to learn more about what we’ve been up to this year.
Yesterday Voicebot covered the release of XAPPmedia’s new Alexa Skill for The Investors podcast, We Study Billionaires. The article interviews XAPPmedia CTO John Kelvie and co-host of The Investors podcast, Preston Pysh about the development process what they learned along the way. It also contains a video demonstrating our new Amazon Alexa feature for podcasters that enables listeners to browse titles by hearing a short description for each episode.
We Study Billionaires is the first podcast Alexa skill using Amazon’s AudioPlayer interface and the Scan Feature developed by XAPPmedia to deliver an interactive voice experience for listeners of the number one ranked stock investing podcast, The Investors Podcast.
