Compatibility With Other Smart Devices Is Key To Amazon Alexa’s Continued Worldwide Growth
Amazon India recently announced that Echo smart speakers can be now used to manage more Smart Home devices. The new capabilities by Alexa include controlling Smart TVs, Air Conditioners, security cameras, and set-top boxes. They are available on Echo smart speakers and even on Echo Spot.
Thanks to Alexa and hands-free voice inside the home, the users are understanding that a smart home is not very complicated. The company manufacturing the devices are quite excited with the change in perception of the people regarding the connected devices.
Alexa has now gained support for Voice remotes like Oakter’s OakRemote and Silver Sirus, replicating infrared signals that are used by conventional remote controls. Thanks to the new ability, users can now ask Alexa to perform tasks like lowering the AC temperature or changing the TV channel.
Amazon Echo users also have the option of setting up routines where Alexa does a series of tasks with just one voice command. The routines can be formed by making use of the Alexa app. Amazon also reported that Sony Bravia TVs will have Alexa skills built-in from now on. With this feature, the live feed from smart cameras can be seen on the TV.
