Now the company has announced two new devices, the treat dispensing Petcube Bites 2 and the laser toy-enabled Petcube Play 2. The upgraded versions of Petcubes existing smart cameras now come with built-in support from Amazon’s voice assistant, Alexa, as well as improved connectivity, sound, and an 180 degree ultra-wide wide lens.
Alexa, who’s a good boy?
The new, wider camera means that you can see the whole room, and with full duplex sound, a four microphone array, and speaker bar, your pet can hear you better than ever before.
Via Alexa, Petcube owners will be able to do everything from playing music to checking the news, as well as flinging treats or playing with your furry companion. As with the previous models, your pet can initiate a two way video call when it sits in front of the camera – when this happens you’ll receive a notification on your phone prompting you to accept a call from your animal friend (as if anyone is going to decline that call).
As well as that, Petcube Bites 2 has been given a more compact design, and can support a wider variety of different sized treats, while the Petcube Play 2 features a more precise laser toy to keep your pet occupied while you’re away.
Coming in black and silver designs, the Petcube Bites 2 is said to be priced at $249 (around £195 / AU$350) while the Petcube Play 2 is $199 (around £150 / AU$280), although official global pricing depends on the seller.
