MAG Interactive offers groundbreaking trivia gaming experience via voice-control technology
Swedish mobile developer and publisher MAG Interactive announced that their hit trivia game Quiz Duel, Germany’s largest mobile trivia app with over 1 million daily users, is now available on Amazon Echo in Germany. Quiz Duel players can challenge their friends and other players in the first real multiplayer trivia experience for Amazon’s cloud-based voice service, Alexa, in Germany and Austria. Germany is a major focus for voice assistant technology and German was Alexa’s first foreign language.
“The number of smart speaker users is growing at a compound annual growth rate of almost 50%. That’s faster than any tech product since the smartphone. We believe that voice control will become an increasingly important interface for games in the future,” says MAG Interactive’s CEO Daniel Hasselberg. “As trivia games work particularly well in this context, we are excited to collaborate with the market leader Amazon in bringing our evergreen franchise Quiz Duel to Amazon’s Alexa and, thus, offer multi channel access to our brand and content.”
With more than 35,000 questions from different categories and more added daily, Quiz Duel on Amazon Echo provides a brand new way of playing trivia using a voice system. From today, German-speaking players can switch at any time between the smartphone app and the Alexa Skill, keeping their previous statistics. Through the Alexa Skill, players can also receive notifications, continue their games or start new duels.
