Amazon Alexa is the system that has changed home assistance in our homes, but it is currently only available on separate dedicated devices such as the Amazon Echo.
A lot of people, including ourselves, have been hoping for the option to bring a system like this to their smartphones or other devices like their laptops, however, at the moment that’s not a fully-fledged option.
In the meantime, a group of developers named RAIN labs have created an app for smartphones and mac that brings the Amazon Alexa system to iOS, Android, and macOS.
And if downloading isn’t your thing then you can even try it out via their website.
Here’s how they explained it:
You can use Alexa through your browser. Amazon’s AVS cloud services are now available to access through Reverb. AVS is Amazon’s cloud service that allows Alexa to be accessed through a web browser on macOS or Windows operating systems. You can talk to Alexa to play music, ask questions, get news and use your installed Echo Skills.
It’s pretty cool, especially to play with, however, it’s not yet a full solution. That said, it’s easy to see how Alexa could fit right in to take over Siri or Google Assistant, should Google or Apple ever allow it.
