Amazon Debuts Alexa Intercom Function, But Only In North America


For example, you might want your Echo to turn on the lights, tell you the weather, and then play some soft music when you say "Alexa, good morning" - or "Alexa, I hate Mondays".

The feature acts like a one-way intercom that can be used with all Echo devices in a household. It has chosen speakers from Junlam & Narui and one smart lamp from Adition in a bid to inspire others to use their designs to quickly produce their own take on Alexa-powered lighting devices.

The command is also useful for announcing when you're leaving the house, or to announce when you're on the way home.

While Amazon frequently discounts many of its Echo devices, unfortunately, the retailer isn't as forthcoming about its bundle deals, which forces shoppers to dig around to find the best deals.

Where are Alexa Announcements available?

The feature will work with any compatible Echo device, including the Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Echo Spot, and Echo Look. Since Amazon is now offering some Amazon Key features across the U.S., it's probably only a matter of time before the company expands in-home deliveries to more cities as well.

Alexa announcements are rolling out to United States and Canada starting today and will support all the Echo devices Echo, Echo Plus, Echo Dot, and Echo Look. Third-party Alexa devices aren't included.

Yep. Google began offering this same functionality for its Google Home line of smart speakers this past November. In addition to the coverage expansion, Amazon Key is also expanding its roster of supported smart locks, adding five new ones from Kwikset and Yale for a total of eight.
