Interesting and exciting news from Amazon recently regarding their Alexa platform.
There are now over 20,000 Alexa-compatible smart home devices, over 5 times the amount at the end of 2017. This is great growth. That’s types of devices with the Alexa assistant built in, not the total number of devices sold, which is due to reach over 50 million by the end of 2018
From their recent press release: “Amazon invented the smart speaker category in 2014 with Echo, and since then it has enabled dozens of device makers to build Alexa into their own products. Leading up to and at IFA this year, we saw industry powerhouses like Bose launch three new devices (Home Speaker 500, Soundbar 700, and Soundbar 500) with Alexa built-in; Sony and Soundcore unveil on-the-go listening experiences created with the Alexa Mobile Accessory (AMA) Kit; Huawei introduce a smart home hub with Alexa; Toshiba preview new OLED and LED TVs with Alexa built-in, and many more OEMs announce new voice-forward wireless speakers, smart home devices, TVs, and more.”
