City of Las Vegas Information

Verdict

The City of Las Vegas Information voice app developed by the City of Las Vegas is an initiative to cultivate a sense of connection with its citizens and enhance civic engagement. The skill itself has donned the guise of a platform with a horde of beneficial facts and service information. Besides providing information on planning commission meetings, the skill also provides fun facts quiz surrounding the city of Las Vegas.

There’s quite a lot of updated information made available via the skill so that citizens can inquire about “who is part of city management, including the mayor, elected council members” etc. There’s an exhaustive list of information the City of Las Vegas Information voice app provides along with the wide range of tasks it offers to prompt citizen participation. The skill provides a handful of services guiding users on how to report an issue, request graffiti removal as well as partake in similar other essential city services using the voice interface of Alexa. Yet, there were a few challenges faced while trying to request a service. A few other downsides were unresponsiveness after retrieving results, the skill’s inability to recognize the user’s “I don’t know” response while taking the quiz, and the termination of the session soon after asking for more facts. The other downers that made the list were the lack of reprompt messages as well as the inability to access the help intent while taking the quiz. 

The VOGO Voice team scores this skill a 3 out of 5-stars based on our rating system. Try for yourself and see how well the skill works for you. Perhaps, you may find what you were looking for or finally be able to report just what you have been putting off for a while now.
