BBC voice assistant promises to summon streams even if you're just a little bit Brahms and Liszt

WTF?

Reinventing the wheel with the licence fee?

I'm not sure why the BBC feel the need to re-invent a wheel here using licence-payer's money?

Surely this would be better-served by a skill for existing voice services (particularly as they are feeding back data to them anyway) rather than the development/support drag that this will cause.

Is this because the iPlayer forced sign-in is (via an arbitrary email address not linked to the licence fee number in any way) not providing the level of data to them that they desired as they can't match it to subscribers on their own?
