Similar to Acer, HP also recently unveiled the Pavilion Wave that is specifically created to offer voice interactions powered by Amazon Alexa. At CES, a number of Windows 10 PC manufacturers are announcing their own partnerships with Amazon to integrate Alexa into their devices, a separate initiative with the apparent goal of bringing full Alexa features to Windows 10 devices. The Amazon Echo (powered by Alexa) and Google Home (powered by Google Assistant) speakers are major rivals in this sphere - though Amazon is said to be far ahead in sales. As per HP, this PC delivers a powerful computing experience and fantastic audio with the help of Amazon Alexa digital assistant. "It now will offer a custom LED to indicate Alexa is listening", the company explained in a press release. One of the best and widely available Voice Assistant is Amazon Alexa and now the company is increasing its reach by making it available on the Windows 10 platform. With the PC integrations, Amazon is moving Alexa onto Microsoft's turf at a time when the two Seattle-area companies are separately working to make Alexa and Cortana work together. An Amazon spokesperson said these new Alexa integrations are unrelated. With Alexa soon to be available on the same system, it could also spell doom for Microsoft's digital assistant. Amazon says there are more than 50 third-party devices with Alexa built-in before any announcements at CES this week. Amazon Alexa has spread from the company's Echo speakers into a growing number of third-party devices, in settings ranging from the auto to the bathroom. Asus says some of its Zenbook and Vivobook laptops will also support Alexa. Users will be able to control the projector after enabling the Acer Projector Smart Home skill by asking Alexa compatible Acer PC, "Alexa, turn on the projector", "Alexa, select HDMI as the projector source", or "Alexa, change projector display mode to bright".
