Amazon Alex lets you control both the Hisense TV, and your smart home, where you can take control of your inputs, stream online radio, or turn your lights on/off from the comfort of your couch. The move will lead to June adding Alexa commands once oven support is available.

"Whirlpool has created an Alexa skill leveraging these new cooking capabilities in the Smart Home Skill API for its connected microwaves, and expects to launch it soon", it writes.
