Amazon Echo has a soundtrack for every activity in your life #VoiceUI #AudioMoment

Amazon Echo has a soundtrack for every activity in your life
The voice assistant now offers hundreds of new voice commands for music based on meditation, getting pumped or, uh, other stuff.

Amazon's Alexa can now respond to your awkward request to play "hook-up music."

Building on the Echo smart speaker's core use as -- you know -- a speaker, Amazon on Thursday rolled out 500 new voice commands for the device to let people ask for music set to different activities. These commands are available for people that have Amazon Prime Music, which is included with a $99 Prime membership, and Amazon Music Unlimited, which costs $4 monthly for Echo owners.

The commands work as another small way for Amazon to connect its devices and services together, in hopes to keeping people subscribed to Prime as well as its monthly subscriptions such as Audible, Music Unlimited and Kindle Unlimited.

Alexa music commands already included requests to play specific kinds of genre, era or mood, and let people search for a song via lyrics. Meditation was the most requested activity that's now available. Amazon also threw in commands to play music for partying, eating, nap time and getting pumped. People can also combine music genres with activities to ask for, say, "classical music for sleeping" or "country music for running."

Siri usage and engagement dropped since last year, as Alexa and Cortana grew [Prepa #VoiceUI] | It's just the beginning | Scoop.it
Siri remains the most popular virtual assistant with 41.4 million monthly active users in the U.S., according to a new report from measurement firm Verto Analytics out this morning, but it has seen a 15 percent decline since last year – or 7.3 million monthly users. In addition, the study found that engagement with Siri has also dropped by nearly half during this period, from 21 percent to 11 percent.

Meanwhile, Amazon Alexa usage has been skyrocketing – jumping 325 percent in monthly active users – that is, from 0.8 million to 2.6 million monthly users, as its user engagement also increased from 10 percent to 22 percent during the same time frame.

Cortana has seen an increase as well, growing from 0.2 million monthly users in the U.S. to 0.7 million, or a 350 percent increase. Its user engagement tripled, from 19 percent to 60 percent.

Facebook is hiring for a music publishing head in Europe - Music Business Worldwide | It's just the beginning | Scoop.it
MBW has spotted that the company is hiring for a Music Publishing Business Development Manager based in London to “lead music publisher/society licensing strategy and negotiations with rights-holders in EMEA”.

The news comes barely a week after it was revealed that the social media giant had taken another big step towards working with the music business by acquiring copyright identification startup Source3.

Facebook’s ad for the EMEA publishing role notes that the successful candidate will also “collaborate with our product and media partnerships teams to ensure a coordinated and best-in-class licensing structure”, as well as “representing Facebook in meetings with music industry executives from other companies in EMEA”.

Someone with more than six years of experience in music partner relationship management is sought, while a “proven track record of leadership and hands-on deal experience in music licensing for global organizations” is preferred.

Unsurprisingly, Facebook is also looking for evidence of “digital music negotiation experience for musical composition”.
