Furthermore, Frankel believes the episode should serve as a warning to other prospective partners, since Amazon has shown that it has no compunction stepping in and directly competing with these partners. The new intelligent display and speaker is shipping end of June.
Amazon Alexa could guide you not just through its voice, it's now even capable of showing you its real prowess.
The Amazon Echo Show has all of the same functionality, including the ability to purchase items from Amazon with your voice (if you have Amazon Prime, anyway).
