Amazon To Bring Alexa To Devices Like Headphones And Smartwatches
Amazon is determined to get its Alexa voice assistant onto as many devices as possible. The company today announced that’s it’s working on a development kit aimed at bringing Alexa to “mobile accessories.” We’ve already seen Alexa-powered wearables in the form of devices like the CoWatch, but this effort marks the first time that Amazon itself is handling the bulk of the code necessary for bringing the voice service to smaller devices. As such (or so we should hope), the service should be more stable than what we’d see from a third-party developer. In essence, all the watch, headphone set or fitness tracker would need to do is connect to the Alexa app on iOS or Android over a Bluetooth connection.
