IBot, our natural-language interface, lets you access information easily without navigating through multiple screens to find what you need. Now we are excited to introduce the IBKR IBot Skill for Amazon Alexa, which leverages the power of IBot - for both clients and non-clients - to access content quickly and securely from any Alexa-enabled device, like the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Fire TV, and Fire TV stick.
Enable the skill using the simple voice command: "Alexa, open IBKR.” Once enabled, you can ask Alexa for the latest market updates, real-time quotes, general IBKR information and "how-to" instructions. Just say:
"Alexa, get the latest market update," or
"Alexa, what's the price of apple?" or
"Alexa, how do I open a cash account at IB?"
Now you can access your account data via Alexa. Simply link your production account in the skills section of the Alexa app by signing in with your IBKR username and password. Once your account is linked, you can ask:
"Alexa, what is my P&L?" or
"Alexa, what's my position in apple?" or
"Alexa, how much do I have to spend?"
Alexa responds with clear, easy-to-understand answers directly from IBot.
Keeping your account information secure is our top priority:
If you decide you no longer want your account linked with Alexa, simply disable the IBKR IBot Skill using the Alexa app.
