Check. Personal computers? Check. Amazon has also earlier launched Alexa Mobile Accessory kit, opening the gates for Alexa to headphones, smartwatches and fitness devices.

Since its inception in 1967, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has served as a platform for the public to learn about the newest technology advancements-more specifically, how technology will change every day life. Google and Apple are both launching voice assistant products to compete with Amazon.

Ives expects "a big push" from the California search giant at the trade show, he said in a research note.

The market is still growing fast, with smart speakers among the top-selling devices at Amazon. From there we'll send you to a page with smart devices, appliances and gadgets that work with an Alexa-enabled smart speaker, or one with Google Assistant baked inside.

The idea is for Google to remain competitive with Amazon's Alexa.

Some of those companies have strengths Amazon can't match.

After much anticipation, has now eventually debuted on PCs and will sit alongside Microsoft's preloaded Cortana assistant.

The AI platform is "open" to utilizing software made by other companies, LG chief technology officer I.P. Park said.

The company largely invented the modern smart-speaker category with the summer 2015 launch of the cylindrical Echo speaker.

Amazon's Alexa smart assistant was the quiet star of the show at last year's CES. With Lexus, the LC, NX, RC, and LS models all have available EnForm 2.0, so any or all of those could get Alexa this year.

You will be able to use Amazon Alexa enabled devices like the Echo and also third party Alexa enabled devices. Analysts with RBC Capital Markets estimated that Amazon sold 33 million Echo devices in 2017, up from 4 million the prior year. Alexa in cars can also be synced with smart-home devices to control thermostats while on the road. A Kohler-branded mirror, the Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror, has embedded microphones and speakers, bringing Alexa to the space above the bathroom sink.

Current owners of any products in the Klipsch Stream series will require a free firmware update through the Klipsch Stream app to enable functionality of Alexa voice control.

The 8-inch model starts at US$199.99 and the 10-inch at $249.99. This interestingly makes Alexa a tougher competitor for Cortana.
