Amazon Echo: Get info and Pilot your Home with your voice.


La dernière innovation d’Amazon, qui ne veut plus se cantonner à la vente, mais également inventer de nouveaux produits. Ainsi, fin novembre Amazon a dévoilé Echo, une enceinte de nouvelle génération, connectée, intelligente et capable d’être contrôlée par une simple commande vocale. Le système se veut intuitif et capable de comprendre un langage relativement naturel, à l’image des systèmes de Google Now ou de Siri. Comme ces derniers, le système se veut également intelligent et connecté: il est ainsi possible de contrôler ses pistes musicales (depuis une application mobile, des radios ou encore le service Amazon Prime Music), mais il est également possible de demander la météo, d’ajouter des produits à sa liste de course, de consulter une définition Wikipédia ou encore de déclencher une alarme par exemple. Pour lancer une demande particulière, il suffit de prononcer le mot clé « Alexa », puis de formuler l’ordre.
