The Amazon Echo has quietly become the hottest smart home product on the market. Suddenly, every tech company wants to integrate its products with Amazon’s customizable virtual assistant, Alexa.
The integrations keep coming, at such a pace that it can be hard to know exactly which products work with Alexa. Amazon’s website tries to keep on top of things, but its interface can be tough to navigate. It also (understandably) underplays the fact that you don’t need an Echo to take advantage of Alexa and all the devices she can control.
Not only has Amazon built Alexa into other products, like the Fire TV, but the company has also allowed third-party hardware makers to build Alexa into their own devices. None of these devices have hit the market yet, but they’ll be coming later this year. By the end of 2016, Alexa will be found in a Samsung refrigerator and even some Ford cars.
To help you understand Alexa’s reach, we’ve created this comprehensive guide. We’ll be continuously updating it as new integrations are announced, in order to help you build the smart home that’s right for you.
Below you’ll find a list of all the product categories Alexa covers. Click on any category to see what’s available.
