Amazon Echo, the weird cylindrical speaker/home assistant, has received an update to add a few highly requested features. The update gives Alexa, the digital assistant lady, the ability to play your Pandora radio stations and give you scores from MLB and MLS games.
To use these new commands simply say “Alexa, play a classic rock station,” or “Alexa, what’s the score of the Detroit Tigers game?” Alexa works a lot like Google Now, but with a little more personality. We compared Alexa to Google Now in our full review of the Amazon Echo. Google can answer more questions, but Alexa is more quirky. Check out the video below to see how they compare.
