New Alexa Skill Blueprints allow you to create your own personalized Alexa skills, even if you don't know how to code. You don't need any coding knowledge or technical savvy - just an idea.

The templates are designed so you can just fill in the bits and pieces that make them personalized to your needs.

The Alexa Skill Blueprints available at launch include over 20 templates across categories like Fun & Games, At Home, Storyteller, and Learning and Knowledge.

To build your own skill or custom Alexa response, users will visit the website blueprints.amazon.com and select a template.

With Alexa Blueprints, you can teach the assistant to answer a question a certain way, for instance, "Alexa, who is the smartest one in the family?" or create a custom command for the babysitter, such as "Alexa, open My Sitter".

Once you have entered the content, click the "Next: Experience" button at the top right-hand corner of the screen.

You will be able to customize diverse questions along with personal answers as well as responses.

Before you put on your thinking hat to innovate skills and responses, it is to be understood that the ability to do so is now limited to the USA and for the English language.

The experience page dictates how the user will interact with the skill, and how Alexa will respond.

With compatible smart home devices, Echo Spot can integrate all of the smart home capabilities that customers love about Alexa-turn on the lights, view your live camera feed from the nursery, set up Routines, control the temperature and more.

The move comes as companies such as Google Inc. and Apple Inc. continue to try to chip away at Alexa's lead with a variety of their own devices.
