Amazon Giving 1600 Echo Dots to This University

Amazon Giving 1600 Echo Dots to This University”

While the firm did not directly make any mention regarding this major update, the details regarding the same were discovered in the product's privacy statement policies.

Sonos has previously confirmed that it would be integrating Amazon Alexa into its wireless multi-room speakers by way of the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot.

Amazon's strategy of expanding the variety and number of devices on which Alexa is available on is already evidenced in a Huawei smartphone - the Huawei Mate 9 which offers the Seattle, Washington-based online retail giant's voice assistant as one of the options.

"With voice-enabled devices becoming more prevalent in our connected world, it only makes sense to bring these capabilities to our campus", said John Rome, ASU's Deputy Chief Information Officer. We have reached out to Sonos Australia for further comment.

Amazon has always seen the Echo range as a flagship product meant to lead the way, rather than a standalone product, with third-party manufacturers integrating it into their products.

According to latest reports, Amazon's much famed Echo Dot may go on sale in India this Diwali, along with the Prime Music service. This routes the audio through the speaker, but voice capture is still handled by the Echo itself.

The new policy reads, in part: "Voice control works by your voice enabled Sonos Product "listening" for a specific wake word".

Amazon has added a series of new developer tools to its Alexa SDK with the aim of making it easier to integrate the voice assistant with more consumer products. "You are notified that it is recording by a visual indicator such as a light on the Product". They will be able to assign tasks to their smart home speakers. The company, however, will be issuing a $5 credit to anyone who had an order for a free Echo Dot canceled.

This also means that older Sonos devices without microphones will have more limited functionality - unless Sonos develops some kind of microphone accessory, of course.
