Amazon Tap’s New OTA Update Makes Buying Echo Looks Kind Of Silly

You know how is it with the Amazon Echo. It is a handy personal assistant and an awesome intermediary between you and IoT, but the thing is, it has to stay plugged to the wall outlet. You could cut it from the wall outlet with this handy accessory, or you could get yourself an Amazon Tap, which is essentially the portable version of the Echo. However, it lacks the support of voice command. Tap, as the product explicitly points out, requires you to press a button to communicate with Alexa. So, at this point, it seems like everything’s fine. Continue reading Amazon Tap’s New OTA Update Makes Buying Echo Looks Kind Of Silly
