ParkWhiz launches new Amazon Alexa skill

Drivers can now ask Alexa to find and book parking; ParkWhiz becomes first parking app to integrate voice commands




ParkWhiz today announced the launch of a new parking skill for the Amazon Alexa service, allowing customers to use voice-activated commands to find, reserve, and pay for parking.


The ParkWhiz skill for Alexa offers a hands-free method to find a parking space near an address, calculate the walking time to their destination and book parking on Once booked, drivers will receive an email notification with their parking pass which they can display on their smartphone for validation.


ParkWhiz takes the lead as the first on-demand parking service to develop this skill. The company believes that incorporating voice-activated technology into its transactions will increase both safety and convenience for drivers when this capability is available in cars. This integration is the first step in that journey to shape the future of transportation.


“ParkWhiz is committed to providing the best possible experience to our customers so we’re investing in the rapidly evolving field of voice-centered interactions to help deliver on that goal,” said Elizabeth Lindemulder, vice president of product at ParkWhiz. “Our skill for Amazon Alexa shows how we are delivering a friction-free experience. We want to give our customers more ways to find and book parking using whatever device they choose.”


Owners of Alexa-enabled devices, such as the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot, can easily begin a ParkWhiz conversation with simple commands and questions related to their parking needs. The ParkWhiz skill for Alexa is free to enable and available on any device that supports Amazon Alexa in English in the U.S. Simply go into the “Skills” section of the Alexa app, search for ParkWhiz, and click enable.
