DALLAS (PRWEB) January 12, 2018
Amazon envisions a world where Alexa will be everywhere – at home, work, and on the go. As the world of computing evolves from touchscreen control to convenient voice commands, their open-source ecosystem is putting the power of Alexa into everything from speakers to smart home components to appliances. As more and more products join the Alexa family, the number of Alexa Skills has grown from 1,000 to over 7,000 in just the last year and the outlook for digital assistant products is excellent, with estimates for the market to reach $3.6 billion by 2020.
