Select Windows 10 PCs to Feature Amazon Alexa

– a press release

“Acer’s latest line of laptops will now feature Amazon’s Alexa as a default, pre-downladed service.”

For Immediate Release – May 22, 2018

Muncie, Ind. – Earlier this year, we announced that Alexa, Amazon’s smart assistant, would soon ship out on select Windows 10 PCs. Acer appears to be the first manufacturer to take this plunge, releasing a new line of laptops that features Alexa as a default, pre-downloaded, service.

By name, Acer has announced Alexa integration for its Spin 3, Spin 5, Nitro 5 Spin, Aspire 5 and the Switch 7 “Black Edition” models. These dizzying titles cover the bulk of Acer’s upcoming mobile product line-up, spanning from core laptops, gaming machines, tablets, ultrabooks, and even slim models.

These devices use a new Alexa Windows 10 app which should be familiar with those that have used Alexa previously. The new app will mimic the functionality of the various Amazon Echo devices, allowing users to ask Alexa questions and schedule tasks. Extended functionality, such as music playback and direct calls is not currently available, but is planned to release in phase two of development. the new laptops from Acer are now available for purchase.
