Hello, Michael is the name. I read in the local newspapers that Amazon plans to make its newly developed device called the Echoe Voice Assistant available for the public to purchase and would want to know more about this project. What are the significant features of Amazon’s Echoe Voice Assistant device? What makes this device from Amazon so special from other similar devices? What would be the ideal purchasing price for one device and I wish to know what software platform does the Echoe Voice Assistant runs?
Significant Features Of Amazon’s Echoe Voice Assistant Device
The Echo voice assistant designed by Amazon had been available on an invite-basis only. That was before. But now, beginning July anyone can purchase it from Amazon for $180. It took 7 months before they finally decide to open orders for Amazon Echo to anyone interested. The Amazon Echo will begin shipping to all customers on July 14 for $180.
This replaces the previous pricing of $199 for regular customers and $149 for Amazon Prime members. The Echo voice assistant brought the e-commerce giant Amazon into the competitive market of voice assistants. The speech-recognition software like Microsoft’s Cortana, Google’s Google Now, and Apple’s Siri only work on Smartphones to allow you to make calls or give driving directions. The big difference between Amazon’s Alexa software, the software that powers Echo, and the other 3 is that it is not used in a phone.
It is a plug-in speaker that stays at home. Echo acts as a dedicated hub for connected homes. It can turn on a lamp through a Belkin WeMo light switch. It can play Pandora or iHeartRadio music. Or, by simply asking the device, Echo can reorder supplies for your kitchen from Amazon.com. Echo can be left on at all times so that users can activate Alexa by just calling her name and then ask to finish a task.
