It’s interesting to see what’s offered by Amazon for “Get to Know Alexa”. Some argue that Alexa and Google Assistant don’t have a Skills / Actions discovery issue. Hmm… I think that they do and have harped about it before.

The weekly seems to be a good place, as does the Alexa website (and app). However, I don’t get the feeling that these are tailored in any way.

It’s unfortunate that Amazon doesn’t take advantage of the opportunity to present Things to Do based on usage or subscription or Skills subscriptions. With all its machine learning capabilities, this is untapped potential. I’m excited that one day they’ll find a place here to do something interesting.
