Expedia Launches New Amazon Alexa Skill

GeekWire – Expedia launched a new Alexa skill just in time for the busy holiday travel season. The Expedia skill allows user to access their travel itineraries, book a rental car and check their loyalty points. The skill doesn’t allow users to book other kinds of travel besides rental cars at the moment, but Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi hinted that its in the company’s future at this year’s GeekWire Summit. “I think that the search experience — which is ‘please book me a hotel in New York, Midtown next week’ — I think the search and query experience is much better served through voice,” said Khosrowshahi. See a demo of the skill in the video below. LINK
