Alexa European Marketing Flash Briefings | Season 03
- LATEST EPISODE! · #FOA, FEAR OF ALEXA | JANUARY 2021
01 Paul, Anna & our VoiceTeam explore Fear of Alexa, Voice Biometrics & Privacy threats
In late October of 2018, Amazon finally launched its long-awaited Alexa-enabled devices in Spain, localised to Castillian Spanish. Here in the agency, we quickly snapped up 2 Echo Dots for in-agency research.
And several members of the team went on to introduce Alexa to their families, by means of the popular Smart Speaker, but also by learning to use new "intelligent devices" such as Philips HUE Smart Lightbulbs and Smart Plugs that quickly transformed our homes -- as well as our daily routines -- into a 21st-Century reality hitherto only seen in Sci-Fi fantasies.
Our Alexa Flash Briefing Is Born
But that's not all we did. We quickly formed our own internal "Alexa Rapid Response Team" and by mid-December 2018, had created the first three episodes of our popular English-language Alexa Flash Briefing on European Marketing and Innovation.
Made up of interviews, relevant Voice news and practical case studies from Europe, the number of episodes has reached 23, with Episode 10 of Season 2 just about to be released at the time of this update.
Upon publication, each Alexa Flash Briefing can be heard using Amazon Echo devices by simply asking Alexa to play the latest show. At the same time, each podcast is accompanied by a post here on the Blog of Barcelona Virtual in which it is possible to listen to embedded Soundcloud audio of each episode.
Listeners -- who currently come from a host of European countries, as well as the USA, Canada, Mexico, India and elsewhere -- can also find links and additional resources from each Flash Briefing.
