Call of Duty: WWII Alexa Skill gives you a personal multiplayer coach

The app uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to create personalized recommendations, including specific loadouts, play styles, maps, modes, perks and divisions for each player.

I've always needed a personal coach when it comes to multiplayer combat for Call of Duty, and now Activision is providing one via Amazon's Alexa voice-recognition assistant. The skill, which is now available in beta, can also provide tips on how to improve your game.

Activision and Sledgehammer Games have unveiled a brand new "voice-controlled reconnaissance scout" for Call of Duty: WWII, called Alexa, which provides you with crucial instructions and post-match reports via voice commands.

Monte Lutz, who serves as senior vice president for consumer management at Activision, talked about the idea of coaching helping players out in the long run.

We know that the Amazon Alexa is capable of some pretty cool stuff if you manage to connect it the right way - but did you know that you could use it to check on progress in Call of Duty: WWII? Using cluster analysis, the machine learning model analyzes more than 20 factors, including accuracy, movement, engagement distance, K/D, shots, score per minute, time played and relationships to other players to make personalized recommendations for each player. You may subsequently ask Alexa how you fared by comparison, and it would make intelligent recommendations based on what it saw and analyzed.

The USGS said the quake of 5.5 magnitude struck, while the state television quoting officials said that magnitude 5.9 had hit. The USGS website says that though no casualties have been reported so far, they are possible in an quake of this size.

"Alexa allows us to have direct voice interaction", Lutz said.

It is cool that you can ask for tips, even in the middle of a match, and it will respond according to how you are now playing. And a new take on the notion of "Call of Duty skills", too. "You can change your loadout to be better in your next match".

The Alexa skills offers Call of Duty: WWII players with various support options, namely personalized recommendations, in-game achievements updates, and the ability to compare your performance to your friends. For reference here is a link to all the current Alexa skills for gaming.

Three separate videos breaking down how the new Skill will work can be found below.
