Royal Challengers Bangalore brings the team closer to its fans with the launch of the RCB Skill for Amazon Alexa.
Celebrating its legion of fans who are at the heart of the team’s popularity, the RCB skill will give fans a personal experience to help them connect with and bring them closer to the Royal Challengers Bangalore team.
Using just their voice, RCB fans can track their favourite team’s progress during the entire season and catch up with their favourite players live in action during match days.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore Bold Army is the backbone of the team and just with the voice command, Alexa will help Royal Challengers Bangalore fans be more engaged with their favourite team and players during this IPL season. Fans will now have behind-the-scenes exclusive access including Match Reviews, Schedule, Team Scores, Ticket Bookings, Royal Challengers Bangalore Insider and more.
Fans can say, “Alexa, Open RCB” to activate the RCB Skill on their Amazon Echo and ask any update they want. For instance, fans can say, "Alexa, ask Royal Challengers Bangalore to give me the latest score" or "Alexa, ask RCB when the next match is". If you want to hear the Royal Challengers Bangalore team stats or individual player stats, you can say "Alexa, tell RCB to give me team stats" or "Alexa, tell Royal Challengers Bangalore to give me player stats for Virat Kohli".
Commenting on the association, Amrit Thomas, Chairman RCB, said, “At Royal Challengers Bangalore, fans are our 12th man and we are always looking at ways to make the cricket experience richer for them. This collaboration between RCB and Alexa is a unique offering that marries technology with the love that fans feel for the game. We hope that it will be very well-received and create a lot of excitement among the fans.”
“Voice is the natural way to seek information. With Skills, customers can choose to engage with Alexa and their Echo devices in so many unique ways. We have always kept Alexa up-to-date on Cricket and are now delighted to have RCB available as a skill. Whatever you want to know about Royal Challengers Bangalore, just ask Alexa,” said Dilip R.S., Country Manager – Alexa Skills.
