With the holiday season coming up, party games will begin to be played as well. Amazon plans on letting no one get bored with a board game. That is why its Echo Buttons are up for sale on pre-orders. You will be getting two controllers for some Alexa-oriented extravaganza.
December 19th is the date for release. An Echo speaker will accompany them. The Echo Buttons work on almost every known model and also use AAA batteries.
Also YouTube has returned to the Amazon Echo Show. That is two months after a Google and Amazon wrangle over popularity on the Net caused the service to undergo a lapse in its continuity.
Amazon is also drumming up support for its Vimeo and Dailymotion channels. Even more content will be added to the pre-existing files on these channels.
As for the 2 pack Echo Buttons, they are available for almost $20. They are compatible with the Amazon Echo, the Echo Dot, the Echo Plus and the Echo Show not to mention the soon-to-come Echo Spot.
However, these Echo Buttons are incompatible with Amazon Tap, Amazon Fire TV and other devices. These buttons are the very first of devices being churned out by Amazon.
Four Alexa Skills will be accompanying these buttons. As for the return of YouTube on Amazon Echo, it is something which occurred after the tiny storm in a teacup that took place in September.
Google removed YouTube from the channel. Google quoted service infringement as the reason behind its drastic step. However, now the new layout of YouTube is an improved version of its former self. Also voice interactions can be integrated with the screens thereby lending a whole new dimension to the overall user experience.
