Do you have the Flu…or is is just a Cold….try asking Alexa or Google.

The new voice-activated Healthdirect Flu advice app offers free health information and colds and it all you need to do is have a conversation with you smart device.

Just in time for the peak of the flu system you’ll be able to ask about symptoms and possible treatments for relief but it doesn’t replace the need to see your doctor if needed.

To get started try “Hey Google, talk to health direct flu advice” or “Launch Healthdirect Flu advice on Alexa devices” There’s also a Facebook chat bot.   

This week I tried this out using my Echo Dot with the Alexa assistant.  Watch the video below to see how it works.
