AWS Mobile Hub now includes an integration with Amazon Lex, so you can build mobile apps that use speech and text, in addition to touch to your mobile app. This lets you use the technology that powers Amazon Alexa to create engaging speech- and text-based conversational bots in your own app. Each bot you create with Mobile Hub uses Amazon Lex to recognize the intent of natural language input and triggers appropriate business functions. You can create engaging conversational experiences for common app scenarios such as booking tickets, ordering products, logging tickets with customer support, querying an internal IT helpdesk system, and more.
AWS Mobile Hub makes it easy to add conversational bots to you mobile app. When you select Conversational Bots, Mobile Hub adds a fully functioning messaging screen to the quickstart app generated by Mobile Hub. The quickstart app uses the Amazon Lex Mobile SDK to acquire speech and text inputs from the app and send them to Lex for natural language processing. Lex is securely configured with access control policies, making it easy to use with Mobile Hub features such as sign-in, SaaS connectors, and DynamoDB integration.
