Amazon's new Alexa Gadgets Toolkit lets Alexa have some toy-friendly fun

  • Amazon plans to release at least 8 new Alexa devices, including a microwave oven and in-car gadget

It is worth adding that some of the OEMs have already launched devices and even cars that support Amazon Alexa voice assistant.

Amazon is apparently planning to release new Alexa-powered devices, including a microwave, an "in-car gadget", and a range of hi-fi equipment before the end of 2018. But we can also expect an amplifier, a receiver, a subwoofer, and an in-car device, among others.

Blunt wants to investigate Kavanaugh allegations
On Sunday, the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford , came forward with her allegations in an interview with The Washington Post . Kavanaugh has categorically denied the incident occurred, so logically, both he and Ford can not both be telling the truth.

Amazon is looking to expand the reach of its Alexa-driven portfolio and this month a few devices should be unveiled. The report notes that the upcoming amplifier can be used as the central audio panel to control multiple speakers set up across a users' home, while the upcoming microwave can bring Alexa in the home's kitchen.

At the time, Rausch said that Alexa worked with 20,000 products, up from 4,000 at the start of the year.

Iran says oil market held "hostage" by Saudi Arabia, Russia
Under the deal, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions. Iran finally managed to get Dino I and Dune to China out of Kharg Island. "China is Iran's top, top oil purchaser".

Amazon's new product lineup is interesting considering the company's serious move to home appliances. Now, Amazon plans to step up the momentum by producing more of its own Alexa-powered devices, according to a report. Amazon also earlier this year bought the smart doorbell maker Ring.

Each one of these new products could open up fresh revenue streams for Amazon. Of course, there are rumours that Amazon is also building robots for the home. While all devices will have the ability to be connected with Alexa, only some will have Alexa built in. Developers who put the toolkit to work will be able to take advantage of four new features. And costing just $50 for its latest revision, it's an unrivaled entry point for Amazon's digital future. Higher-end models provide further flexibility to explore Amazon's offerings beyond Xbox, but as always, these come at a premium. With eight new Alexa-enabled devices, the company is working along that goal.
