At the hardware launch in September 2018, Amazon demonstrated the vision of integrating Alexa into any device with a board. At the meeting, the company announced more than a dozen new devices, including clocks, microwave ovens and redesigns of existing products such as Echo.
In the interview, Lipp said that there are more than 150 hardware devices integrated with Alexa on the market, most of which were launched in 2018.
When it comes to the number of "100 million", people can't help but impress Amazon's Alexa platform. It still seems to have huge room for growth. But this number also emphasizes that Amazon must work harder to catch up with Google Assistant and Siri, which are supported by Android and the iOS ecosystem.
However, in the smart home market, Alexa seems to have dominated Google, despite Google's successful launch of several Google Home devices, especially the Google Home Mini.
Amazon's low-cost Echo Dot also seems to attract a lot of attention. The device was upgraded in September 2018 with a new design and louder speakers.
Amazon has also achieved success on unreleased hardware. The company revealed that they have registered more than 1 million people and are ready to accept invitations to purchase Alexa Auto equipment.
