  • Amazon launches Echo Look in U.S., could popularize computer vision via Alexa

The Amazon Echo Look is a Alexa powered virtual assistant device with a top notch camera on it It can allow you to take pictures by using your Phone or your voice. Amazon says it's working with those services to integrate voice commands. Plus, since it's a streaming device, it can stream content from stuff like Prime Video and Netflix and still give you access to all of Alexa's skills. This is a better deal on the Echo Show than Amazon offered on Prime Day a year ago.

The Amazon Echo and Alexa voice assistant is continuing its global roll-out, with the smart speaker available in France from next week.

Alexa itself is also increasingly inside some smart TVs. Amazon has worked closely with Netflix to build support for voice into its app, as well as content providers such as Hulu, ESPN, FOX, Showtime, STARZ, CBS, and NBC.

"We tried to be thoughtful about when she speaks back to you instead of just doing what you've asked her to do". The Cube can control a set up with the support of HDMI-CEC provided that the other devices support that standard. This enables users to do things like switching between TV boxes and consoles, searching for shows and controlling the volume.

The macOS Mojave update has a number of new features including Dark Mode , Desktop Stacks , a redesigned Mac App Store , and more. The new Mac App Store features sections for specific app types: Discover, Create, Work, Play, Develop, Categories, and Updates.

Interestingly enough, the Fire TV Cube has some brand new competition on the audio side of things in Sonos' slick and smart new soundbar, the Sonos Beam. The new device can also do typical Alexa tasks, such as playing "Jeopardy!" or fetching the weather, even when the TV is off.

June 21 is the actual release date, and the 4K Ultra HD-capable Amazon Fire TV Cube streaming media player with hands-free Alexa support will be shipped alongside an IR extender cable and Ethernet adapter. Amazon has confirmed that the Echo Spot will be available from next month. Another plus: since it's created to hook up to a TV, users can easily control and view smart camera feeds. Boom, full integration. It'll work with set-top boxes from Comcast, DISH, et al, too, in case you haven't fully cut the cord.

Amazon is expanding its lineup of Fire TV products today with the Fire TV Cube. As an introductory offer, Prime members can order on June 7 and 8 for a special price of $89.99a $30 savings.
