Representatives from Amazon are working on a streaming service which allows you to listen to music, called Amazon Echo. This new app is announced to be cheaper than the products of Amazon’s competitors like Apple Music and Spotify. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the low price will attract clients, but it could also affect Amazon’s budget. The business will implement the new app for less money, even if they spent much more for its developing.
People say that Amazon doesn’t intend to make money out of music apps. What is more, this e-commerce based company plans to boost the sales for Amazon Echo, by streaming music. The new Amazon Echo was designed to let customers use their voice to make necessary commands in organizing a schedule, making online purchases, and getting information about any topic.
Amazon has recently revealed a less expensive version of this digital assistant called Echo Dot. The device’s price is of $50. The main idea is to make home technology more enjoyable for those who have long shopping lists for the end of the year sales season. These devices will also be promoted on the shelves of Amazon stores. Shop-workers are always ready to advertise the new Amazon Echo and other Amazon devices’ features.
Besides from having to benefit from this digital assistant, users will also be able to play different songs by just relying on a voice command to choose from a list. Representatives argue that Amazon Echo’s goal was to use this music app from the start. Developers managed to implement this music streaming in the new tool. Considering the fact that the market of streaming music is already overcrowded, Amazon is aware of losing money on an inexpensive app like this. The company only purpose is to implement Amazon Echo in people’s lives, using the device on a daily basis.
The plan for Amazon Echo was first made public two years ago. This amazingly helpful digital assistant, which resembles the one of Google’s, is trying to make the future easier for you. A simple app like this can help you get a recipe, control your home’s lights, pay a bill, check the weather, by only using a voice command.
Technology is science. It is here to improve our lives and to astonish us with excellent knowledge. Would you use this digital assistant?
