First connected digital photo frame to support control from Amazon's cloud-based voice service
MINNETONKA, Minnesota, March 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Creedon Technologies, parent company to Nixplay, NIX and Nixplay Signage, today announced their first integration with Alexa, the cloud-based voice service from Amazon.
With immediate effect, customers can now use any Alexa-enabled device to manage their Nixplay Wi-Fi Cloud frame, making the company the first connected digital photo frame brand to do so.
"Nixplay customers can now just ask Alexa to manage and play their photo playlists directly on their connected frame – from wherever they are," says Creedon Technologies CEO, Mark Palfreeman. "It's the latest frontier in interface design, and we are ahead of the curve in providing this capability to our customers. The connected home is a growing reality and we're committed to building smart home skills that enhance not only our customer's use of their Nixplay frame, but their ease and effortless enjoyment of memories in their home."
Specifically, the 'Just Ask Alexa' feature on Nixplay digital photo frames enables customers to ask Alexa to:
- Display a requested playlist on any Nixplay frame
- Assign a specific playlist to a Nixplay frame, wherever that frame may be
- Query the status of Nixplay frames
This capability is live now on all Nixplay Wi-Fi Cloud frames (1) via an automatic software update.
(1) Applicable to Nixplay Iris, Nixplay Seed, Nixplay Edge and Nixplay Original. Some older Wi-Fi Cloud frames may require a firmware update to access all the new Alexa features.
(2) Available from 25th March 2018
