Using the Connect IQ Andriod SDK, developers can create apps for Connect IQ devices and distribute them via the Connect IQ Store. Connect IQ for Android allows developers to translate sensor data into new metrics, provide information with widgets, and offer solutions for active lifestyles.
New improvements have been added to the Amazon Alexa Voice Service (AVS) including voice or button-activated volume and media control, voice-activated timers and alarms, updated APIs, server-initiated message capabilities, and Alexa App enhancements including iOS and Android support.
