Amazon and Tuya Announce Further Integration with Alexa
Products Powered by Tuya Support Amazon Alexa’s App-to-App Account Linking
Global AI+IoT leader Tuya announced that it is now supporting Amazon Alexa’s new App-to-App Account Linking feature. This integration allows users of the Tuya app to seamlessly link any products powered by Tuya to Alexa, without leaving the Tuya app.
This announcement builds on Tuya’s partnership with Amazon, as integration with the Alexa digital assistant has been a part of Tuya’s global leading AI+IoT platform for smart home devices since its launch to allow for voice control of devices powered by Tuya.
“Based on the capabilities achieved by natively supporting Amazon Alexa, this has always been one of our key priorities in our AI+IoT platform,” explains Alex Yang, Tuya COO and co-founder. “And now with app-to-app account linking, we can provide even better service to our device maker partners and the consumers who use their products.”
