Amazon Alexa to launch on Windows 10 PCs this year

This deal is apparently unrelated to the partnership Amazon struck with Microsoft past year, which would let Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana voice assistant "talk to each other" on Windows 10 PCs.

READ NEXT:Starry Internet to expand wireless broadband service this month Windows PCs are a logical next step for Amazon's rapidly expanding Alexa.

Some of these new PCs - like Acer's lineup - will come with special hardware that will let Alexa respond to commands more quickly and hear you better over loud music, similar to Amazon's own Echo devices.

California Commissioner Condemns Session's Move Against Legal Pot
She said Sessions' directive "simply gives prosecutors the tools to take on large-scale distributors and enforce federal law". But the emerging pot industry is rooted in shaky legal ground, complicating regulatory, financial and advertising issues.

Computer manufacturers HP, ASUS, and Acer are all adding support for the Amazon Alexa digital assistant, with more companies likely to continue the trend. The new app will allow users to ask Alexa questions just like they would with an Echo device.

The three personal computer giants debuted personal computers on Monday that are created to work with Alexa, part of a push by Amazon to spread its voice assistant to more third-party devices. "It now will offer a custom LED to indicate Alexa is listening", the company explained in a press release.

"Acer is excited to be among the first brands to bring Alexa to PCs", said Jerry Kao, President of IT Products Business, Acer.

It will only be available in the 8GB RAM / 128GB storage configuration, but pricing thankfully hasn't changed. Finally, UV layer is used to refine the texture of the phone and ensure hardness and durability.

HP plans to roll out Alexa for its HP Pavilion Wave desktop computer tower, which doubles as an audio speaker.

Perhaps, most interestingly, the newly integrated PCs will show findings on screen, as well as audibly delivering information, with other Alexa integrations only able to perform the latter. With Alexa soon to be available on the same system, it could also spell doom for Microsoft's digital assistant.

In August past year, Amazon and Microsoft announced that they were working together to share their digital assistant's abilities.

Those words prompted an acerbic response from Mourinho referencing Conte's history of facing accusations relating to match-fixing. I consider him a little man, I consider him a man with a very low profile'.

Alexa already works with the Acer Air Monitor, and it will also be available on Acer's new V6820M and V6820i 4K UHD projectors. And you'll find Alexa on so many devices these days, from light bulbs to ovens to vacuum cleaners, but heading to Windows 10 PCs is a very big deal considering how many people use and rely on Windows PCs every day.
