This ability to create and publish Alexa voice-based skills points toward new ways that brands can interact via conversation.
The PullString platform had been used to build the Alexa skill to accompany Amazon s TV series, The Grand Tour.
Previously, it was employed to create interactive conversations for the companion app to Hello Barbie, as well as for a Facebook Messenger-based Lt. Reyes chatbot to promote the video game, Call of Duty.
