GAA launch Official Amazon Alexa Skill
In order to make general updates and match information gathering easier for members and supporters at home and abroad, the GAA is delighted to announce that it has developed its very own Amazon Alexa skill which is now available to download for free.
GAA fans can now access latest news, fixtures, results and other information by simply asking the question of their voice activated smart devices. The service aims to grow awareness of Gaelic games on an alternative platform while personalising the user experience by offering a ‘preferred county’ option which filters updates relevant to his or her choice.
The skill, which is one of the first of its kind to be developed in Ireland and the only one by an Irish sporting organisation, is the latest digital content offering to be made available by the GAA to people at home and around the world. This follows on the heels of the extremely successful short form match and midweek clip highlights service GAANOW (GAA.ie/GAA-Now) and the Association’s dedicated Spotify music channel - the Sound of the GAA - which was also launched in June of this year.
The GAA Amazon Alexa Skill offers updates and information on:
• Upcoming Fixtures
• Recent Results
• Ticketing Information
• Live TV Match Broadcast Information
• GAA Trivia
• GAA Quiz (Fans can test their GAA knowledge and hear where they rank on a national and individual county basis)
