Amazon launches Alexa, Echo, and Prime Music in Canada

Amazon Echo Dot is a smaller device, which you can add to any room and also pair with additional speakers via Bluetooth or a stereo cable, available in black and white. The new units have been programmed with Canada-specific knowledge, and boast apps from Canadian developers and businesses, such as Air Canada, CBC, and Bank of Montreal. The BMO skill provides an innovative voice service that gives customers access to banking information such as nearby ATM locations, up-to-date foreign exchange rates and information on BMO products and digital channels. Well, apparently another company figured this out as Speak Music, a San Jose based company, have just announced the Muse, a $49 Dot for your vehicle.

For those unfamiliar with Alexa and the Echo lineup of devices, Alexa is a smart assistant that can do everything from read the news, get local weather, play music, control your smart home, and - my daughter's favourite pastime - ask Alexa questions about just about everything. Prime Music, which features over 1 million songs on demand, is now included with every new and existing Prime membership in Canada.
