Amazon Alexa's multiple smart home integrations and Google teaming with Nest and Apple HomeKit also are expected to fuel sales of smart speakers. Although lacking the smart home interaction of Alexa and Google Assistant, the Roku Entertainment Assistant will make it easier for you to play media with a voice command. Well, it looks like Amazon is putting efforts to make the Voice Assistant a revolutionary product and service for consumers and besides the company wants to make its Alexa powered Echo devices available for all the rooms in a consumer's house.
Amazon says that, to begin with, Alexa will be able to set microwave cook times, modes and power levels, but there's no word as to whether the AI assistant is yet smart enough to figure out how to set the ruddy clock.
Amazon confirmed the feature had gone live in the U.S., with other countries to follow shortly.

As a result, increasing numbers of third-party companies have moved to add Alexa compatibility to their products so that Echo speakers and Alexa-compatible smartphones can be used to control appliances around the home.
Whirlpool is the first company to create an Alexa skill for its connected microwaves, and Amazon said it'll be launching "soon" in the USA, so we wouldn't be surprised if the first AI-controlled microwaves made an appearance at CES next week.
Now Amazon is making strides to expand that trend beyond lights, door locks and televisions, and into the kitchen. You might, for example, tell Alexa to set the microwave for 3 minutes or ask Alexa to preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
