The company is looking to make money in the long term from people shopping with Alexa and using it - rather than Apple Inc's Siri or Alphabet Inc's Google Assistant - as their go-to voice technology.

The answer to that question is Amazon's "Alexa for Business" offering, which lets companies buy Alexa devices like the Echo for employees to share at $7 per month per gadget. While I'm not sure if it's worth paying almost $90 for a Ghost speaker that requires an additional Alexa speaker to work, it'd be a pretty cool item to have around the house I suppose. "The Destiny 2 Ghost skill is the first of its kind and the most innovative and immersive gaming experience to date on Alexa". For instance, you can ask Alexa to tell Ghost to save your current loadout as your Crucible loadout (or Nightfall, Strike, or Trials of the Nine Loadout). We're excited to give our community of players, who are among the most-dedicated fans in the world, new ways to play Destiny 2 with the Ghost skill and Limited Edition Destiny 2 Ghost.

“Destiny 2 players being able to interact with a physical Ghost paired with an Amazon Alexa is just a really fun and unique idea, ” said Pete Parsons, CEO of Bungie.

Clan features for Ghost can be triggered with the command "Alexa, tell Ghost to call for backup" or "Alexa, ask Ghost who in my clan is online".

In the months after the shooting, Yanez was dismissed from the police department and charged with second-degree manslaughter. Moments after Castile disclosed that he had a firearm, which he had a permit to carry, Yanez fired into the auto .

If the Ghost skill is not enough, Amazon is also releasing a Ghost replica speaker.

The Ghost-shaped Wi-Fi speaker pairs with your Alexa-enabled device and works with a new Ghost Alexa skill.

In addition to finalising its website, Amazon reportedly paid $7 million for 2.11 hectares of vacant land in Sydney's south-west, adding to its warehouse in Melbourne's Dandenong South. That's particularly important considering many skills have struggled with retaining users thus far. Admins will be able to enroll users, enable and disable skills, and connect Alexa to their conferencing equipment. That's an improvement from the three percent second-week retention rate VoiceLabs reported in January, but is still a relatively small figure.

So what exactly does this do for Destiny 2 players? "It allows you to dive deeper into the world of Destiny".
