“Alexa, where’s my stuff?”
In a move that surprises absolutely no one, Amazon Echo users can now ask Alexa for tracking updates on packages from, of course, Amazon.
The Echo smart speaker’s voice-assistant Alexa can now field questions related to any items you’ve ordered off its site, without needing to grab your phone or computer to check a package’s whereabouts.
While package tracking is a natural, seemingly obvious move for the company, it’s an important one too. Amazon is not only making the Echo a hub to get whatever you need on demand, from news updates to an Uber and Domino’s pizza, it’s also bringing its Prime membership capabilities into the physical home.
