DJs tensed on the radio. Alice started a personal morning show

Just say “Alice, turn on the morning show!”, And then you can find the latest news, weather forecasts, listen to small podcasts, interesting stories and music according to your preferences. In addition, Alice can not only put songs you usually like but also comment on what is happening.
Between creation and news, Alice talked about current topics. For example, a personal assistant now offers advice on how to spend time at home effectively and happily.
We want Alice to be not only an assistant but also a friend to spend time with. Therefore, we teach her to follow the news, entertain users and create a pleasant atmosphere in the house, and the morning show is the first step in this direction. Product Manager Andrei Zakonov
