Amazon plans to release at least 8 new Alexa devices, including a microwave oven and in-car gadget

Per the report, the company intends to release at least eight new devices controllable by its digital assistant by year's end.

The upcoming product roster includes home entertainment gear like an amplifier, a receiver, and a subwoofer.

Smart speakers are becoming a fixture in our households.

Amazon is all set to introduce a range of Alexa-powered devices before the end of the year.

Some of the devices will have Alexa built-in, while the others will pair to other Alexa-controlled devices. It's available on various devices like smartphones and smart speakers, and lets you check the weather, play music, and control smart devices in your home with voice ... Alexa and the Google Assistant now power hardware in different product categories such as smart displays.

It's unclear whether the devices will be branded as part of the Echo line, which includes devices like the original Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Show.

With devices like a microwave, subwoofer, and amplifier on the list of new Alexa-equipped Amazon goods, we're starting to branch further and further away from just smart speakers here and there. Now, Amazon plans to step up the momentum by producing more of its own Alexa-powered devices, according to a report.

Voice assistants have slowly spread from smartphones and smart speakers, landing on computers, cars and much more.

"We want customers to be able to use Alexa wherever they are", Bezos said in a statement in July.

'There are now tens of thousands of developers across more than 150 countries building new devices using the Alexa Voice Service, and the number of Alexa-enabled devices has more than tripled in the a year ago'. Audi, one of the popular automobile firms has recently took the wraps off its first ever electric vehicle that supports Amazon Alexa voice commands. The company is reported to be working on a secretive home robot, as well, according to Bloomberg.

Google's Assistant software is also able to answer follow-up questions on the same topic, in a near-conversation style, but Echo as yet can not.

A light comes on to remind you that it's listening.
