Yesterday, Brad Hill of RAIN News wrote a glowing review of XAPPmedia’s B100 skill after trying it out for himself. The B100 skill was developed with Federated Media to provide a full interactive radio experience on Amazon’s Alexa as it offers three choices for listeners: live-streaming, on-demand listening and podcasts.
B100 is the first radio station to launch an Amazon Alexa Skill that includes live stream, on-demand and podcast content. It also uses Amazon’s AudioPlayer interface and the content Scan Feature developed by XAPPmedia to deliver an interactive voice experience for listeners.
InsideRadio featured the new partnership between XAPPmedia and Federated Media in part one of their "exclusive series on how radio is using digital in groundbreaking ways." Federated Media recently hired XAPPmedia to develop a custom Alexa skill for its country “B100” WBYT South Bend radio station to give listeners access to its audio content through their Alexa-enabled devices.
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.
