Amazon Rolls Out Monetization for Skills in Japan, the UK and Germany
Alright, hey guys Mark Phillips back with SimpliSpoken This is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing and just want to turn our attention to a couple of announcements that are recent in the Amazon space where they have brought their monetization for skills to three countries UK, Germany and Japan. So that’s kind of a interesting, interesting development, monetization tends to be a big thing, especially for the folks like the game developers and the guys that want to offer sort of digital goods or premium products. And it’s a model which is sort of like the app model for a lot of vendors where Amazon takes say, a cut, so they take 30% of the purchase, and developers get the rest. So that’s an interesting development. Because if you look at the Japan, Japan’s market, or the UK market, or the Germany, the market in Germany and Europe, that’s an interesting kind of international expansion play, and I think probably will begin to see them roll out across the globe, in kind of a big way. So monetization is interesting is still a kind of a tough nut to crack. And it’s still I think, a little bit limited in what your monetization capabilities are and what you what you can actually sell. So I think more to be done there. But it is an interesting development in that folks that were located in those other geographies can monetize their skills before so this will kind of improve and streamline that for those guys. Alright, guys, so this is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing, please do hop over to the skill store and give us a good review. Thanks, guys.
