Competition in the use of wireless stand-alone devices is gaining momentum. Amazon, inspired by Apple’s recently released updated AirPods, has begun developing its own similar device, Amazon Buds, which also works with Alexa’s voice assistant. Amazon headphones should be introduced in the first half of 2019. Lab126 developers say the project aims to further develop Alexa. From the point of view of the e-commerce giant, such headphones in combination with a voice assistant can greatly simplify the process of placing an order in a company online store. You can just say: \ By analogy with Echo speakers, the headphones will simplify access to Amazon’s streaming music and audio books, as well as to third-party services that provide news, weather and other information. The creation of Amazon Buds Headphones will expand the ecosystem of devices supporting Alexa, which in turn will be an incentive to make more purchases at Amazon. According to available information, Amazon Buds will be in-channel with touch buttons on the body to control music, high-quality sound and a complete case for charging.
