An Alexa Skill Will Change Your Flat Tire
Urgently has released a new Alexa skill the enables stranded motorists to ask Alexa for help with a flat tire. After answering a few questions about their flat tire and where they are stranded, the Alexa skill will dispatch roadside assistance from the Urgently Nationwide Network of 75,000 service providers in the U.S. There is no need for an account, account linking, or entering your credit card for service. Nor is there a mobile app. Users simply enable the Urgent.ly Alexa skill, accept the permissions for the app use, and say “Alexa, open Urgently.” After a service provider is requested to change the tire, the user can also ask Alexa for status on the expected time of arrival.
