The internet giant is mulling the launch of eight new devices that can be controlled just by using your voice and its digital assistant technology, Alexa. While the microwave oven would be new, Amazon has already partnered with companies like Sonos to make Alexa-enabled amplifiers and other audio equipment. Now, Amazon plans to step up the momentum by producing more of its own Alexa-powered devices, according to a report. The microwave can make Alexa a key part of the kitchen.
Google and Apple have so far dominated the smart vehicle stereo market, and although there are a number of Alexa-enabled smart auto stereos on the market, this is a missing link for Amazon in its the Alexa-everywhere strategy.

The more in-house products and partnerships Amazon can score for Alexa, the better.
"The new devices reflect Amazon's ambition to make its Alexa voice technology ubiquitous by focusing on areas where people spend most of their time - at home and in the auto", the outlet reports.
