8 new Alexa devices planned including a microwave, report says

The microwave will put Amazon head-to-head with the General Electric Co., which already offers a smart microwave, itself Alexa-enabled. JBL has released several smart displays equipped with Google Assistant. It is worth adding that some of the OEMs have already launched devices and even cars that support Amazon Alexa voice assistant.

Amazon could reveal these new devices at an event by the end of this year, an internal document indicated, CNBC said.

Amazon is expected to announce these devices later this month, so stay tuned to TNW to find out what the company has in store. Garmin, too, has an Alexa-compatible dash cam that be used in a auto.

It's believed Amazon will unveil a few of these Alexa-powered devices at an event later this month.

Amazon didn't immediately reply to a request for comment. The report notes that the upcoming amplifier can be used as the central audio panel to control multiple speakers set up across a users' home, while the upcoming microwave can bring Alexa in the home's kitchen.

Four dead following shootout in Mexico City's 'mariachi' plaza
In August, police arrested the presumed leader of the gang, Roberto Moyado Esparza "El Betito". "It was not random", he said. It is also the busiest time of year for Garibaldi Plaza, a beloved but seedy square that draws heavily on Mexican folklore.

The news comes via CNBC, which reports that at least eight new Alexa-powered products are on the way which include a subwoofer, an amplifier and a receiver. Of course, there are rumours that Amazon is also building robots for the home. The company acquired Ring, a smart doorbell maker that also makes Alexa-compatible devices, earlier this year.

More so than other virtual assistants including Siri and the Google Assistant, Amazon's Alexa has always been focused on the home. Sonos has a similar business model.

Much like Sonos' partnership with IKEA, the more places Amazon can place its Alexa AI the better it is for the company.
