As we teased in our last entry, Sero was coming to another popular platform. Well, guess what? It's here! "Alexa is Amazon’s voice service and the brain behind millions of devices including Amazon Echo. Alexa provides capabilities, or skills, that enable customers to create a more personalized experience. There are now more than 10,000 skills from companies like Starbucks, Uber, and Capital One as well as innovative designers and developers." And now Serotek Corp is proud to announce it too is a part of the growing base of Alexa skills developers, because why swipe this way and that when you could just tell your device to play your favorite Sero audio content? Here's how you do it: Enable the Skill in your Alexa app Tell Alexa to "Start Sero." Alexa will ask you to link your account. Return to the Alexa app and link your app. That's it! The Alexa Skill is currently free for all current Sero subscribers. This offer will not last forever though, so please give it a test drive, see what you think, and if you like what you hear, tell your friends about it! … [Read more...] about Alexa, Start Sero!
Sero has always been about connecting you to your favorite content and your community. Now, we're bringing these two aspects of Sero together. When you listen to a piece of content, now you can tell the Sero community what you think, by giving us your rating and writing a review. Giving us your rating is as easy as pressing one button. Once you've done that, you'll have the option to write a review as well. And don't forget that you can share your favorite content on social networks, by email, or even in a text message if you're running Sero on your smartphone. Ratings and reviews are available now on Windows, Mac, iOS, Apple TV, and Android. Unfortunately it is not currently practical to write a review on the Apple TV, so instead, Sero will send you an email that you can open on your computer or mobile device to write a review. So when you listen to something on Sero, whether you loved it, hated it, or just lost interest, please tell your community what you thought, by giving us your rating and writing a review. … [Read more...] about Liked It?

Since we launched the beta of Sero, our "mother of all updates" on Mother's Day, we've been busy making further improvements to the product based on your extremely helpful feedback. At Serotek we’ve always been all about community, and we are heartened to note the community has not failed us in collaborating to make this a product we can all be proud of. Here are a few highlights to date and some notes on future plans: Thanks to your helpful feedback, we have improved the voice chat user experience, especially on iOS. Sero now announces when people enter or leave a chat room, and automatically reads new text chat messages. You can turn these announcements on or off on a per-computer or per-device basis. And on iOS, you no longer have to tap and hold a button to talk if you're not wearing a headset. Instead, Sero uses your iOS device's built-in echo cancellation capabilities to make sure that people don't hear themselves echo. We also added support for Bluetooth headsets on iOS. Note that we have not yet brought these enhancements to Android. Please accept our apologies for the delay, but we will change this very soon. You’ve asked for better navigation. We've made it easier to get … [Read more...] about A Pulse Check on the Sero Beta
