“Alexa, cook my burrito.”
Yes, that could be our glorious future as Amazon is planning to introduce at least eight new Alexa-powered devices this year, according to an internal document obtained by CNBC.
Some of them will be revealed at an event later this month, CNBC reported. We could see a subwoofer, receiver, car gadget, and amplifier. But also, that microwave. Imagine the possibilities: telling Alexa to defrost your Trader Joe’s pasta, and, um, probably lots of other useful stuff.
Some of the devices will simply be able to connect to Alexa; others will have the digital assistant built in.
Amazon isn’t the only company trying to spread its digital assistant. JBL has released several smart displays equipped with Google Assistant.
Both companies face competition from Apple, which released its Siri-powered HomePod smart speaker earlier this year.
