Amazon Echo must be one of those devices that constantly have your eyes focused on what may be next for Amazon’s voice-command speaker. With the latest update, “Alexa” can read the latest news headlines to you (only if you ask nicely), or even news about a particular topic. The Amazon Echo won’t provide any commentary, but if you’re in a rush and want to be kept in the loop of things without having to check your phone or teeny-tiny smartwatch. The Echo provides this and more, all hands-free.
Amazon hasn’t forgotten to load up Alexa with a new alarms and timers feature (that is at your disposal) for those busy days where you’ll have important meetings scheduled. Many more updates can be viewed on Amazon’s website. Now if we can get an Amazon Echo in the car, it could possibly end the habit of checking your phone while driving, let’s cross our fingers and hope for the best.
