Free basic Amazon or Prime accounts are required for players to use the game control. Push-to-talk and Voice Activity are hands-free features that can be accessed by either holding down a button or key. You don't have to say "Alexa" to start a command.
The technology used to build the game control is similar to that used to build the voice artificial intelligence. The players will be able to control their smart home devices, set timers and check the weather.

There are a number of drawbacks to voice recognition, such as misinterpretation, lack of accuracy, inability to recognize accents, and background noise interference.
