Of course, people won't be talking about the condition of relations between Alexa and Cortana almost as much as they will be talking about voice-activated toilets.

In addition to that, laptops made by HP, Asus and Acer will also have Alexa voice recognition capabilities built in, rather than through a website.

These include speak Music's $69 Muse and Anker's $50 plug-and-play Bluetooth smart charger Roav Viva.

There are already a number of big name device makers working to integrate the service, with Bose, Jabrra, iHome, Beyerdynamic, Linkplay, SUGR, and Libre Wireless working to put out "Alexa on-the-go" devices this year.

Inc.'s Alexa voice-activated virtual assistant will be added to some Toyota and Lexus vehicles this year, advancing Amazon's ambitions to expand its speech platform beyond the home.

I'm not entirely sure I'm serious about this idea, but I also don't see much standing in the way of allowing smart home devices to communicate by voice.

These devices - including Amazon's Echo Show - can perform all the same functions as smart speakers, but they also offer the ability for users to make video calls, watch videos, look at photos, and search the internet, using both their voice and hands. Google will then provide the logic for the smart screens with the incorporation of Google Assistant.

CHP Officer Died When Struck By Drunken Driver
His partner, Jonathan Velasquez, survived the wreck with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Asst. All three suffered injuries and were rushed by ambulances to local hospitals.

Google doesn't intend to manufacture these smart displays themselves though.

LG Chief Technology Officer Il-pyung Park speaks to CNET in his first interview since getting the job. More often than not, the companies like Google announce a new service, but apart from the news reports about the service launch, there is hardly any great resources detailing what it can or can't do. Amazon Alexa's newest home is a pair of smartglasses. Google's Assistant can be summoned on Android smartphones, and Siri lives on Apple's iPhones.

Alexa could get a bit more opinionated about media in the future, Amazon Fire TV VP Marc Whitten told Variety.

Some of those companies have strengths Amazon can't match.

But Amazon is leading the race to make software that can control other machines. It demonstrated the benefits of smart-home technology enabled by Google.

You can turn off the microphone temporarily, too.

The company said that Alexa is now programmed to handle a range of tedious office tasks.
