“We anticipate that visual and voice technology will change the way our
brands connect with our consumers,” said Greg Shewchuk, Chief Marketing

Kitchen
skill brings new utility to the connected kitchen by
encouraging users to engage, discover and cook meal solutions that work
for their busy schedules.”

    prep-method and effort)
