How to add platform in WECAST.AI

Today, let's find out how to add the platform of your WECAST voice app. 

Let's say you have used Wecast Alexa Skill and enjoying it. Thank you. And your friends who have Google home or Google nest devices ask if there any way they can try your Wecast as well. You don't have to make a separate Wecast voice app to broadcast on Google devices. You can only "add platform" from your existing Wecast Alexa Skill. If you have Google Action and no Alexa Skill, adding a platform will also work that time.

When you are on your board page, on the left corner, you will see the icon of Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant depends on which platform you are using. If you are using only one of them, you will see the button "add platform". When you click the button, you will see the platform selection page.

It shows your existing platform and the other platform as well. We are planning to support more platforms such as Mycroft, Cortana, Siri, or many others when they start supporting some easy SDKs... Anyways. 

At this time we select Amazon Alexa because we already have Google Action for our Wecast.

Then you will be redirected to your information page. Since you have already filled in when you have made your existing voice app, the only thing you need to add is the category of your new Alexa Skill. Easy right?

Then you get to upload new image for your Alexa. See, Alexa askes two images, 108x108 for small icon 512x512 for the large one, and Google asks one image for both in 192x192. I really hope those two companies talk to each other and unify the size of the image and many more such as each calling their voice app different ways like Skill..Action...

Once you pay the new voice app creation fee, then you are good to go! Wecast team will make a new voice app for the new platform in days and now your Wecast can cast to both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant devices! Congratulations!

Wecast.ai makes your voice app life easier than ever. Enjoy!
