Great voice apps improve how users interact with the web, whether they're checking the weather, asking for sports scores, or playing a game. "Voice applications for Alexa and Google Assistant" is your guide to designing, building, and implementing voice-based applications for Alexa and Google Assistant. You'll learn to build applications that listen to users, store information, and rely on user context, as you create a voice-powered sleep tracker from scratch. With the basics mastered, you'll dig deeper into multiuse conversational flow and other more-advanced concepts. Smaller projects along the way reinforce your new techniques and best practices."@en ;
