How can I program my Amazon Echo?

Episode 1306 (31:35)

Tom from New Hampshire
Amazon Echo

Tom is blind and he bought the Amazon Echo Tap during Prime Day this week. He's interested in adding Skills. Leo says that Skills are extensions that add functions to the Echo and it's fairly easy to write a skill using their cloud based platform. They are limited in how you can implement them, though. Amazon also has an Alexa Skills Store that Tom can search. As it gets more capable, he'll be able to find more skills.
