I guess you already heard the news. Alexa is invading our homes.
First we had a speaker that responded to our commands for music, news, audio books, and all kinds of information. Now, it was just announced that new versions of Alexa will be connected to microwave ovens, wall clocks and other household appliances.
Hold on. I just found out that we will also be able to use Alexa to talk to folks over Skype.
Microsoft and Amazon have agreed to incorporate Skype into Alexa. That’s means you will be able to access Skype on Amazon’s Echo. Can you imagine sitting in a chair and just simply requesting a call? What’s even more amazing is that Amazon’s Echo will feature a video calling system. That is incredible.
Alexa is changing our lives.
