Mr & Mrs Smith has taken a step into voice-activated search with its brand-new skill on Amazon’s Alexa.
The voice-led skill is all about inspiring people to travel – ask Mr & Mrs Smith to find a hotel based on personal preferences – city stay, beach break, honeymoon etc. – or let them inspire you with the very latest additions to their collection.
The emphasis here is on fun and ease of use; not the complicated, drawn-out booking processes on skills created by travel companies to date.
So, you’ll be able to save recommendations as favourites and listen to them later.
Then, if there’s one stay you’re swayed by, you can request a call back from Smith24, the company’s round-the-clock travel experts, who can explain more and book the entire trip.
“We’ve always kept our finger on the pulse with new technology, and developing this voice app gave us the opportunity to work in a new, fascinating and fast-growing space.
“It’s still early days, of course; we’ll be able to develop the app further once we have data on how our customers are using it. Still, we’re really excited that voice is now part of our eco-system, and we hope it gives users genuine hotel inspiration – in recognisable Smith style – using nothing more than a few voice prompts,” said Tamara Heber-Percy, co-founder.
Mr & Mrs Smith Co-founder Tamara Lohan will be unveiling the Mr & Mrs Smith skill at the Amazon Merchant Summit in London on the September 13th.
