I have been playing few games with my son on Amazon EchoDot using some of the interesting Alexa skills, and sometimes the buzzer just goes off. It’s about how quickly you react to those games. Looks like Amazon has a solution for that, and they had it unveiled during the hardware event at the end of the September this year.
Named as Echo Buttons, they are available for pre-order, and compatible with voice-based trivia games like Button Monte, Beat the Intro from Musicplode, and Sounds Fun with Mike Epps from Ground Control. The best part of these buttons is that they come in a pack of 2, and they only cost you $20. If you have 4 players for the game in the house, you can order two! They work with all the Amazon Echo devices as of now.
- Each button illuminates and can be pressed to trigger a variety of play experiences powered by Alexa
- Bring back game night with a catalog of compatible Alexa Skills such as Beat the Intro, Button Monte, and Sounds Fun with Mike Epps. Just ask “Alexa, what games can I play with my Echo Buttons?”
- Easy setup with an Echo (1st and 2nd Gen), Echo Dot, Echo Show, Echo Plus, or Echo Spot
- Connect up to 4 buttons with compatible Echo devices using Bluetooth
- Each Echo Button requires 2 AAA batteries. Includes 4 AAA batteries.
You can pre-order by following this link. They are available only in the U.S. as of now.
