Smart tech is here to stay, becoming more and more of our everyday lives. However, it is still easy to get confused between the Google Assistant, Alexa, Google Nest Mini and the Amazon Echo Dot – all integral to controlling our smart tech at home.
Here is a quick download of exactly what Alexa is.
What is Alexa?
Simply put, Alexa is a device that will recognise your spoken commands and respond to you – this means you can ask questions to find out the answers and instruct your Alexa to play music for example. The most common place to find Alexa is in the Amazon Echo – a range of speakers that come complete with the Alexa software. However, with increasing use of virtual assistants you will find the Alexa software in the likes of cars and other third-party speakers.
