"We're excited to work with Expedia to bring personalized travel-updates to our Alexa customers—and just in time for the busiest travel season of the year," said Rob Pulciani, Director, Amazon Alexa. "Now Alexa and Expedia customers have the ability to track their flights, book their car rental, and get real-time updates on delays or gate changes—all hands-free by just using your voice. We can't wait for our customers to try this out."
Owners of Alexa-enabled devices, such as Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Fire TV and others, can easily begin an Expedia conversation with simple commands and questions related to their trip. The Expedia skill for Alexa is free to enable and available on any device that supports Amazon Alexa in English in the U.S. Simply go into the "Skills" section of the Alexa app, search for Expedia, and click enable.
