Live365 introduces Amazon Alexa voice skill

Live365 has launched its own skill for use with the Amazon Alexa voice assistant. This integration will allow listeners to access lean-back listening to hundreds of music genres and thousands of stations.

The skill can be enabled in the Alexa Skills Store online or by giving a device the command, “Alexa, enable Live365 skill.” After activation, the voice AI will prompt the listener to pick a favorite station or music genre to be the default when the general command of “Alexa, play Live365” is given. The skill does allow more specific requests as well.

In a blog post announcing the skill launch, the company noted that its name should be pronounced as “live three sixty-five.”
