Should Pinga build an Alexa App?

20% of all UK households have a smart speaker, but beyond adjusting the volume slightly or maybe turning off a light bulb is anyone using them for anything, well, useful?

How about asking Alexa to sort you out with a nice bottle of red? Just simply: “Alexa, I really need a bottle of Oyster Bay Merlot”, leads to…”Sure, that’ll be with you in 20 minutes”.

Surely that’s a whole lot better than faffing around with the Tesco website. Now I appreciate I’ve shortened the sequence here slightly….but it could just be the future.

What do you think? Add a comment below or answer a few (genuinely) fun questions here, we’ll love you forever.

This task was picked up by Danny, a nearby resident, who went to no less than four shops to help her out. Really lovely […]
