The Amazon Echo has had a few more updates, and they incorporate three new major features that every cannabis connoisseur should appreciate; food, music, and someone else to drive you around.
The true test of the value of technology is by how efficiently it can bring you food. Amazon has partnered with dominos to bring consumers the easiest form of pizza delivery imaginable. All you have to do is yell at your device what kind of pizza to order and it will do the rest.
You can even preset your favourite pizza topping to be an “easy order”. This way, all you will have to say to the echo is “open dominos and place my easy order”. Now that almost seems too good to be true.
Whatever your opinion is on music streaming, the Amazon Echo has you covered. iTunes, Pandora and Spotify have all been given the green light on this personal assistant. As long as you have the app on your smartphone, the Echo can integrate with the service and bring 360 degree sound to anywhere in your home.
This translates to the easiest way of starting a great music session after some uplifting Sativa. Another update that came to the Echo is the ability for the device to repeat any word or sentence that you desire. Simply yell “Alexa, Simon says” at your device to get Echo to repeat whatever it is you tell it. And yes, you can have it repeat whatever you said via the device’s remote control. We’ll leave this one to your imagination.
The most recent update to Amazon’s device is the ability to hail an Uber driver without the use of the application on your smartphone. What could be easier, simply speaking the words “call me an Uber” into thin air can summon a driver to your doorstep within minutes. The perfect software for someone who needs to make a quick trip to the dispensary or maybe a restaurant for some quality munchie foods.
The fact that Uber was already quite easy to get a ride through their mobile application makes this update even more innovative. Uber users with an Echo won’t even have to lift a finger when calling for rides. Sure maybe it gives the user a lazy vibe, but what’s the difference between this and telling a receptionist to call you a taxi?
