One of the best highlights from Amazon at CES 2018 was the availability of its Smart Assistance, Alexa, on Windows 10 PC. The company did show a demo of how it works, and its capability at the event, it also said that it’s going to come to only selected Windows 10 PCs, and will be available in Q1, U.S. only.
That said, if you own those selected Windows 10 PCs, and want to get a first-hand notification about its availability, you need to follow this link, and sign-up so Amazon can send you a notification when its ready. That said, the page also showcases what Alexa will be capable of on Windows 10 PC, and how it will communicate with your SmartHome and Echo devices.
- You will be able to type in to get things done instead of talking to your device. This is reverse of what Alexa is supposed to offer but looks like that’s the only way to make it available from anywhere, and on every device.
- You will be able to control your Smarthome from your PC.
- You can listen to music, read ebooks, do voice shopping, and make free calls in countries where it’s available.
The best part, you don’t need to own an Echo device to listen to music, etc. You can just use your PC microphone to get things done.
