Save Your Voice, Amazon Echo Buttons Can Now Do More

But what if you can’t remember the right words? Or, heaven forbid, you have a sore throat? Sometimes you need to rest those vocal cords, especially if you’ve got a complicated command that needs specific phrasing for Alexa to understand.

If you’ve invested in Amazon’s Echo Buttons, you’ve now got an alternative control method. Though the colorful buzzers were originally designed for Alexa-powered gaming, they’ve now been updated to be able to control smart home routines.

So, what separates these from, say, just a regular light switch then? Not only can they be placed anywhere around a room that you like, but they can also be programmed within the Alexa app to control more than one gadget at once.

It’s a nice way of breathing new life into the (somewhat wasted) Echo Buttons for those living in an Alexa world. And, if you’re living with family or visitors that just can’t get their heads around the thought of conversing with a machine, they’ve now got a tactile way to enjoy the benefits of a smart home too.

At $19.99/£19.99 a pair, the new feature lands just in time to be partnered up with your Black Friday smart home purchases.
