Similar in size and shape to a Pringles can, Alexa is a voice-controlled speaker that is, in and of itself, a virtual assistant. All you have to do is give it the voice command for the task you wish it to accomplish and it will do so. It’s as simple as “Alexa, turn up the heat” and you’ll be able to turn up the heat without having to get out of bed. It couldn’t be simpler. Of course, you do have to have the right type of thermostat and have it all set up to work together. Alexa will also tell you a joke if you ask it to or give you the latest in the sports scores.
