Vuzix and Amazon Partner To Bring Augmented Reality Glasses with Alexa Support

Only a few months ago did JBL launch its Link series, four speakers with Google Assistant built-in and now it has added a fifth member to the family, the Link View.

Dish equipment including Dish's Hopper, Joey and Wally set-top boxes can already be controlled via Amazon Alexa. So, the consumers are either forced to figure out things themselves or scour the web for blog posts or reddit posts offering some information about the new service.

A slew of well-known consumers brands are making a big bet on Google's AI including Lenovo and LG.

Direct-broadcast satellite service provider DISH has announced it is working on integrating Google Home and Google Assistant into its TV service. Google will then provide the logic for the smart screens with the incorporation of Google Assistant.

But smart speakers remain limited in their reach around the home, at least for now, and that's where I think being able to talk to other voice-activated devices can be a benefit.

California Rep. Darrell Issa not seeking re-election in 2018
Republicans, meanwhile, say they will benefit from the fight between the Democrats seeking to claim the seat. Darrell Issa on Wednesday announced his retirement from Congress after almost two decades of service.

Adding a digital assistant to a computer is nothing new and how often Alexa, and in what capacity, you'll call upon Alexa on such machines remains to be seen. The popularity of Alexa in homes has led many observers and analysts to conclude that it could bring voice in vehicle to a new level.

Amazon's Fire TV devices have been shipping with support for Alexa for years, initially offering access to the company's voice assistant via microphones integrated into the Fire TV's remote control. For instance, 61% of consumers say they don't interact with voice assistants because they aren't interested in them, according to data from Pew Research Center. Well, many manufacturers did announce some form of integration of their products with the virtual assistant, Besides, the search company has reportedly partnered with 15 companies to make new products featuring its technology.

While Alexa has appeared on wearables before, the new kit aims to make the process much simpler, so Bluetooth devices built with it can connect right to Alexa through the smartphone app. For more updates, stay tuned with us!

Still, at the end of the day, Google, Amazon and everyone else wants to come out on top, and all will push to have their voice assistant in as many products as possible. The device is available to purchase in two different color options.
