Testing for Alexa Voice Service
Ensure your AVS-enabled device delivers a natural voice interface and rewarding customer experience by testing with native speakers around the globe in a variety of real-world scenarios.
Voice Testing for Your Devices
Deliver a valuable hands-free experience.
Developers and device manufacturers use Alexa Voice Service (AVS) to integrate Alexa directly into their products. Today, there are more than 20,000 AVS-enabled devices around the world, from speakers and smart TVs to vehicles and home appliances. Users who engage with Alexa expect a familiar and natural experience – regardless of what device they are using.
Although Amazon helps simplify the process for building Alexa-enabled devices, manufacturers are still responsible for building and testing voice-forward products that have a natural user interface and can reach customers around the globe. That’s where Applause real-world testing can help.
Applause enables device manufacturers to test their AVS-enabled devices with native speakers around the world, accounting for unique languages and dialects. Testing teams are curated and customized to match the device maker’s target requirements. Applause enables you to test in a variety of real-world scenarios to ensure your device brings a valuable, hands-free Alexa experience to your customers and encourages ongoing engagement.
