Amazon is reportedly launching an Alexa-enabled subwoofer, microwave, and much more

20 September, 2018, 01:12 | Author: Abraham Jackson
  • Amazon plans to release at least 8 new Alexa devices, including a microwave oven and in-car gadget

The devices include an amplifier, receiver, sub-woofer, in-car gadget and a microwave oven.

The CNBC states that Amazon is expected to reveal some of these devices at an event later this month as more and more consumers come around to the idea of the connected smart home.

Amazon may decide to launch an entirely separate line dedicated to Alexa-equipped home devices, separate from the Echo line. Now, it seems Amazon is hoping to take things a step further with a clutch of new devices.

Amazon is already grabbing a certain share of the smart speaker market with a few Echo-branded devices.

Amazon has already made a point of making it as easy as possible for developers to build their own Alexa devices.

Amazon Echo relies on Microsoft's Bing search engine and Wikipedia, while Google Home uses the company's own Google Search.

It's not just new products for the home the company is working on, meanwhile. Amazon also earlier this year bought the smart doorbell maker Ring. Sonos, for example, has a similar business model, as it said in its quarterly filing that it relies on "custom installers of home audio systems for a significant portion of our sale".

However, Amazon's Alexa software has a wider range of skills on offer that enable it to link up with and control more third-party devices around the home. But it looks like the e-commerce firm is planning to expand its hardware portfolio drastically with as many as eight devices if the latest report by CNBC holds some weight. All of them will be Alexa-enabled, however, some of them will have Alexa inbuilt, says the report. Named E-tron SUV, the auto needs to be linked to your Amazon account after which you will be able to give voice commands to play music, get weather information, to-do list and nearly everything that you can do with an Echo speaker.
