Amazon Echo Family Grows With 2 New A.I. Devices: Dot And Tap


Apple has its iconic voice-activated virtual assistant Siri, while Google has Google Now, but Amazon beat both to the punch in offering a dedicated, stand-alone virtual assistant for your home in the form of the Amazon Echo, released last year. Now Jeff Bezos and company are expanding the Echo family with two new devices: the Echo Dot and the Amazon Tap.

All three devices make use of "Alexa," the name Amazon gives to the voice of its personal assistant, which listens for your questions and can tell you everything from news headlines to weather updates and more useful information.
