Amazon Alexa receives a corona update in the USA. With this update, the Alexa voice assistant takes care of things, among other things Center for COVID tests in the vicinity to find.
New COVID functions for Alexa in the USA
A new Alexa skill provides the ability to ask the voice assistant for one Center for COVID tests in the vicinity to find. With the question “Alexa, where can I have a COVID test carried out?” Alexa lists the next stations. There is also the option of asking the language assistant to call the test center so that they can book an appointment directly or ask for further information.
With the command “Alexa find a COVID study”, the voice assistant lists ongoing studies within 30 miles that are still looking for test subjects.
These functions are currently only available in the USA actively and use the IQVIA database. You could of course also simply look up the information on the Internet, but querying it by voice is more convenient.
