Adobe announces Amazon Alexa integration for Adobe XD letting users preview their voice prototypes on Alexa-enabled devices like the Echo Show.

These new tools let you export and preview voice prototypes on any Alexa-enabled device, such as the Echo Dot or Echo Show, and builds on XD’s existing voice prototyping capabilities introduced at MAX 2018. Additionally, included as part of this integration is the launch of the Adobe XD skill for Alexa, the first-ever Alexa skill built by Adobe.

“It’s our goal to provide designers, developers, and creators with the support they need to build great voice experiences with the tools they are familiar with,” says Paul Cutsinger, Head of Voice Design Education, Amazon. “We’re excited to work with Adobe to help Adobe XD designers more easily prototype their Alexa skill experiences, and give their vision a voice.”

The Amazon Alexa XD plugin
The Amazon Alexa XD plugin lets you export prototypes to Alexa, giving you an easy way to preview Adobe XD prototypes on an Alexa device. Experiencing your prototypes on real devices can help your clients or stakeholders better understand and experience your vision. Plus, by having voice prototypes readily available on an Alexa-enabled device, you can have more design-focused conversations about your Alexa skills and iterate without having to go through full product development cycles.

The Adobe XD skill for Alexa
The Adobe XD skill allows you to access and interact with your prototypes via an Alexa-enabled device like an Amazon Echo. The Adobe XD skill for Alexa is the first ever Alexa skill built by Adobe. To get started, install the Amazon Alexa plugin via the XD Plugin Manager, then enable the Adobe XD skill through the Alexa Skills Store online, or through the Alexa app.
