Q&A
1. WHY IS THIS BETTER THAN THE PREVIOUS VERSION?
This version supports the very latest Google API
You can change the language (Use the Google app to do this)
You can specify your locale in the Google app to get local information
The Echo show and Echo Spot will display written information
It’s faster than the old skill2. WHY DO I NEED A CREDIT CARD?
The skill is hosted on AWS which is an Amazon service. The usage of this skill is free for many thousands of requests per month, however Amazon still require a credit card incase you start using their services beyond the free limits. Your credit card details stay with Amazon.3. I ALREADY HAVE THIS SKILL FROM LAST TIME, HOW DO I UPGRADE?

  1. Hi Paul, will there be a tuition using the new layout of the Developer screens. I have tried to adapt but making a pigs ear of everything !!!

    1. Hey dude 🙂

      I have every intention of doing an updated tutorial. Just not sure when. The last one took 20 hours to make and was the 2nd time I’d done it. I now have to make it a 3rd time, so you can imagine how keen I am to do that 😉

      Thanks,

      -P
