For those of you that have bought yourself an Amazon Echo today, you will be able to enable the Guardian skill. For those of you that haven’t, let us explain what it’s all about.
Amazon Echo is a smart hands-free speaker that can recognise and respond to voice commands. Echo is the first way you can speak with Alexa, Amazon’s voice service. You can ask her for information about the weather and sports scores. She interfaces with your favourite services and devices, so you can ask her to play music on Spotify or switch your lights on and off. We believe technology like this could make a significant difference to our homes.
