#1
Amazon’s Alexa voice-assistant is now available on your iPhone, without requiring the actual Echo device. Amazon’s voice assistant is available via a paid app called Lexi. The app is supported on all iOS 9.0 and above devices and costs Rs 300 for Indian users on the App store.

The app requires an Amazon account, and users will able to ask Alexa questions, place orders for Amazon products, re-order, remotely control their smart home devices, etc on the app, says a report on The Verge .

Lexi app lets users ask Alexa questions about the weather, news updates as well. Pretty much what Siri and Google Now also offer on the iPhone. However Alexa’s streaming music and books integration still need that Amazon Echo device, reports TheNextWeb.

Amazon’s Echo is a cylinder-shaped speaker with Internet-connected microphones where Alexa is supported.

Alexa is competing against other voice-controlled services such as Apple’s Siri,
Microsoft’s Cortana and Google’s search engine. Amazon’s voice-assistant can now perform more than 300 tasks, such as hailing car rides, turning on lights and controlling home thermostats. The Echo now ranks among Amazon’s top-selling items in consumer electronics in the US.
