Alexa gets a new trick for Amazon Echo owners to use on Christmas Day
CHRISTMAS DAY is just one sleep away. In preparation for the big day, Amazon has rolled out a new feature to its Echo smart speakers to enable Alexa to broadcast Her Majesty’s Christmas message in your home.
If you’re worried about missing the Queen’s annual Christmas Day message – don’t panic. US retail firm Amazon has added another way to listen to the broadcast, when it goes out on television and radio on Christmas Day. Amazon Echo smart speakers, powered by AI smart assistant Alexa, will now be able to tune-in to the Queen’s annual Christmas Day message.
In a blog post announcing the latest addition to Alexa, which is also used in smart clocks, microwaves and some in-car infotainment systems, Amazon said: “With many families and friends experiencing an altogether different Christmas this year, The Queen’s words of encouragement will be needed more than ever.”
