Recode, the popular video sharing platform, is teaming up with Alexa developer Alexa to stream voice lessons in real-time.
The videos will feature clips from a wide range of voices, including those of celebrity comedians, actors, and even members of the military, but the content is designed to teach you to get a feel for how to use the digital assistant.
“Voice learning is a huge opportunity for us to make Alexa accessible and to make it accessible to millions of people,” Alexa’s senior director of product marketing, Jason Lee, told Recode in an interview.
“We’re hoping to provide the same level of depth to this channel as the Alexa videos, so we can build a much broader audience of people.”
To get started, you’ll need an Echo Dot or Echo Dot Mini.
The first lesson is called “A Conversation with My Dog.”
In the video, you can hear the dog say things like “I love you,” and “It’s really good to meet you,” with your dog responding by saying “It is good to see you.”
The next clip, “Totally Awesome with Alexa,” shows a man playing a video game.
He’s asking Alexa to “play a game” with him.
Alexa responds by saying, “I will.”
“It was great meeting you,” the man responds.
Alexa then says, “You are so smart.”
“Oh my God!” he says.
“You’re so smart!”
The next lesson, “Playing a Game with My Family,” shows the same man, with the same dog, playing the game with his family.
“I know this is a very exciting game, but I think it’s so much more fun when I can just use my hands and just talk to my family,” he says to the camera.
“Can you imagine how much more entertaining that would be if I could just talk through my hands?”
“That’s an awesome idea,” the voice says.
Then the man says, in a tone of wonder, “Yeah, so that’s what I’ve been wanting to do all my life!”
“You should really try that, Jason,” the Alexa voice responds.
“Oh, yeah, that’s right,” the boy replies.
“Wow, that was so amazing.”
The man responds, “But you should really talk to your mom.”
Alexa then responds, in the same tone of surprise, “Mom?”
“You said you wanted to do this with your mom, right?” the boy asks.
“That is exactly what I wanted to try, too,” Alexa says.
Alexa says, with a playful smile, “Can I get you a drink?”
The boy answers, “Sure, I’ll get you one.”
Alexa says to him, “Cool.
Now, I think you’ve got a really good game idea.”
“Great!” the boy says.
The next video shows a young boy playing a game.
“What’s that?” the camera asks.
The boy says, to the boy’s amazement, “It looks like a game!”
“That doesn’t sound very interactive,” the camera says.
He adds, “So, how did you get that?”
“I just just heard the voice,” the narrator says.
This is the first video that Recode has released with Alexa.
Recode plans to release additional videos in the coming months.
Recodes new Alexa videos are designed to be easy to navigate, easy to watch, and have a rich, natural audio quality.
Recoding a video with Alexa is similar to playing a virtual piano with a virtual keyboard.
You just have to hold down the right keys to play the song and then click the left key to stop.
You can see the video in action below.
The video is called the “Echo Lessons.”
“We think the Echo series will help people to learn more about their voice, which is one of the key reasons we decided to build it with Alexa in mind,” Alexa said.
The Alexa channel was launched last year.
Alexa launched the video app in April, 2016, but it wasn’t until last year that the video feature made it to the Alexa app.
“For the first time in the video experience, you are able to see a conversation happening in real time, and you can see what the person is saying in their voice,” Alexa explained in a blog post last year about the channel.
“This is a powerful tool for giving people a deeper understanding of how they use their voice.”
Alexa also announced in June that it is launching a series of videos about Alexa, with two new videos released this month.
“The first video shows an actual interaction between an Alexa-enabled household and a real house,” Recode said.
“In this video, a man sits in a room, and Alexa answers his questions, and the video shows the man’s reaction.”
Alexa said the second video will show how a real person might respond to a real question asked of Alexa.
“If a person responds to a question with
