The Ripple Effect: Developers Bring XRP to Amazon Alexa
The avid XRP developer Wietse Wind is lending his support to a new project to bring XRP to Amazon Alexa.
The third-party feature is designed to let users check their balances, and send and receive XRP by saying a few simple commands. The project essentially brings the XRP Tip Bot to Alexa. The popular bot is already up and running on the web, allowing anyone to send XRP to people on Reddit, Twitter and Discord.

The project is led by the independent programmer Nixer. Once it’s finished, it will be submitted to the Alexa skills store for approval.
Wietse Wind, the creator of the XRP Tip Bot, recently hinted that new features like this are on the horizon. He’s now actively working to make it easy for developers to integrate with the tipping platform, opening the door for a variety of apps that allow users to transfer value by using XRP.
Also a great idea. Our resources are limited, so we're going to focus on a few other things, and we're building TipBot V2 (it will take some months) allowing other developers to integrate with the TipBot 🎉
