Overview of Amazon Alexa

The Amazon Alexa API connects your Pipedream workflows to Alexa's smart capabilities, enabling you to build voice-driven interactions and extend the functionality of Alexa Skills. Interact with users through their Alexa devices, manage and update Skills, or harness Alexa's smart home control. With Pipedream's serverless platform, you can create complex workflows that respond to Alexa events, trigger actions in other services, or process voice commands for custom outcomes.

Overview of Delay

The Delay API allows you to build workflows that wait a specified amount of
time before continuing. This can be useful for rate-limiting actions, or
waiting for an external event to occur.

Here are some examples of what you can build using the Delay API:

  • A workflow that sends a Slack message after a specified amount of time
  • A workflow that checks for new data from an external API every hour
  • A workflow that backs up a file to Dropbox every day
