Alexa downunder

Looks like the Amazon always listening Alexa is about to land in Australia and NZ.

Amazon has announced that Alexa and Alexa-enabled devices will land in Australia and New Zealand in early 2018.

The Echo will be part of the launch, reports The Sydney Morning Herald — although, Amazon is keeping mum about precise timing and the exact Echo devices it plans to release.

“Ok Google” is already there, and if you like to get solid answers to real questions, that is the one to get (I have both in my living room).
But, if you like to play with home automation, Alexa is the kicker thus far.
