    [$$] Voice Assistants Are the New Marketing Battleground

    A few years ago, Diageo PLC created its first customized application, or “skill,” for Amazon Alexa-enabled devices, enabling people to ask the voice assistant for information about the beverage maker’s Johnnie Walker whiskey brand. The problem, according to the U.K.-based company, was that the skill wasn’t compatible with how consumers use voice-assistant devices. Diageo was pushing information about the history of its brand on users, rather than providing them with an application that would make their lives easier.
