After long months of waiting people can finally purchase the Amazon’s Echo digital assistant.
Formerly available only for a small group of people, who were chosen and allowed to see the bin-shaped speaker, it is finally available for everyone. According to Amazon, the new device was launched in November and since then the improvements of the gadget had been made.
This innovation, which is actually a speaker, can control different hardware like connected lamps, and stream music out of its speaker. However, there was the mix of reviews left under the new device since its release. But it achieved a 4.5 star on Amazon from those, who were selected to be the participants of an early release.
According to the fact of having or not having the Amazon Prime, a price differs. Those speakers that have the higher price have at the same time much more options. However, the price is now set at $179.99.
The device has a character called Alexa, who is built in the cloud. Alexa can talk to users with the human voice and share what it learns with other units.
According to Amazon, Alexa has improved numerously since it was released. The support for Pandora and audiobooks were added as well. Besides, it has a connection to such home products as Belkin’s WeMo and Phillips Hue.
The fact of releasing of the Amazon Echo outside of the US, including the UK, hasn’t been yet released.
