Alexa 'Answer Update' Feature Will Get Back to You Later

Alexa isn’t the shopping behemoth Amazon hoped it would

Anyone who has an Echo device or a third-party Alexa-enabled device can get a TP-Link Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug Mini for $10 with coupon code SMART10.

Read the full report from The Information here. The question is, how many are using Alexa to order items online? It is a surprisingly low engagement rate, though Amazon did sell in the neighborhood of 50 million Alexa devices.

In the meantime, the Information wrote, the vast majority of people use Alexa and other comparable devices like the Google Home to use its vast library of voice-activated skills - things like checking the weather, operating connected smart devices, and streaming media.

We've all been there: Your boss asks you a question and you don't have the answer. It does not matter whether you are managing your personal schedule, listen to music, navigate a route to the destination, reading the news or looking for nearest service center Seat. In fact, so far this year, only about 2% of consumers made a purchase with their voice commands. To use the helper, just download SEAT Media Control with Amazon Alexa from the Android PlayStore, connect it to the vehicle, and voice service is ready for use.

Indonesia quake toll jumps to 164, survivors wait for aid
Across much of the island, a popular tourist destination, once-bustling villages have been turned into virtual ghost towns. Rescue efforts have intensified to find people buried in rubble following the quake that shook Indonesia's Lombok island.

One of the sources stated that it is simply the matter of finding a way out of boosting people to continue purchasing via Alexa through data analysis, after which they could flourish the market quickly.

So what could be holding Amazon's potentially-lucrative Alexa sales back?

Amazon Alexa will send the notification on the device where you have enabled the feature, a TechCrunch report said. "We want to enable customers to shop in whatever way is easiest for them".

Amazon's home devices are making the hands-free future a reality with the seemingly never-ending debut of new skills, but the latest one that allows you to never leave your home (or couch) again?
