Unfortunately Amazon only sells the Basic Edition of its Fire TV in Australia and we miss out on United States models which pack more grunt, support faster Wi-Fi, handle Ultra HD streaming and work with Amazon's talkative Alexa smart assistant. Yes, you heard that right.
Hisense has announced that it is partnering with Amazon to bring the e-retailers digital assistant, Alexa, to some of its 2018 Smart TVs. "Customers can ask Alexa to set microwave cook times, modes, power levels, and more instead of using the traditional and often confusing microwave experience". Support for other cooking devices, such as conventional ovens, is coming soon. It'll also spread availability beyond the US-only skills that the new system will ship with now, to other countries.
Companies featured in the talks have reportedly included Procter and Gamble, and Clorox, who could soon "pay for higher placement if a user searches for a product such as shampoo on the device, similar to how paid searches work in Google".
That's June Oven, the touchscreen-fronted smart appliance that was announced back in 2015. The interfaces are designed for future extensibility as support for more cooking devices becomes available the company has revealed. The skill enables customers to easily configure, start, and operate their connected Whirlpool microwaves. "At Amazon, we believe that there will be an Alexa skill for everyone, for everything".
LG, Samsung, Kenmore and GE Appliances are also reportedly planning to add Alexa support to their appliance ranges. They'll be among the first to use the new Smart Home Skill API's support for ovens, though it's worth noting that those talents won't be in the API initially.
All in all, this is an interesting development in the technology sphere.
