Now Amazon seeks to push the envelope with Alexa's new personalization ability.

"Alexa for Business brings the Alexa you know and love into the workplace to help all types of workers to be more productive and organized on both personal and shared Echo devices", said Tara Walker of Amazon Web Services in a blog post.

You can even ask it to "Equip your Raid Loadout"?!

Alexa for Business is the latest extension of Amazon's popular product, which is now powering Echo speakers, cameras, thermostats and other smart products that have been typically used within the home.

"Alexa, ask ghost for my next milestone".

The limited edition Destiny 2 Ghost device connects with WiFi; buyers will need the official Destiny 2 Skill from Activision and Bungie to use the device's Alexa integration.

Other features this companion can do include letting you know more about Destiny 2's backstory and characters, keep track of your clan's progress and see who's online to join you in battle, plan out your next destination with a variety of game modes, and manage your weapons. Rather than interrupting gameplay to navigate menus, players can just ask Ghost through Alexa to help with certain tasks. Try saying: "Alexa, ask Ghost what I should do next". You can ask Ghost to equip your most powerful weapon, by saying "Alexa, ask Ghost to equip my most powerful weapon", or "Alexa, ask Ghost about Cayde-6" and Nolan North (voice of Ghost) will respond back.

The program can make phone calls, send messages or find information, according to Walker. The Destiny 2 Ghost skill is the first of its kind and the most innovative and immersive gaming experience to date on Alexa. Certainly, bringing Alexa into the corporate environment will pose numerous challenges like IT management of devices and security issues, but if Amazon succeeds in taking over the enterprise sector it could stand to gain immensely. With an install base of millions of Alexa-enabled devices, there's also a strong correlation between early home voice assistant users and gamers.
