Amazon's Alexa may soon come with health-related advice, as reports reveal that Amazon is building a team "dedicated to expanding Alexa's health and wellness capabilities."
With health and fitness-related apps extremely popular, it makes sense that Amazon's Alexa would also include its own form of wellness-related functions. In addition, the hope with the new device is that it will allow for a more diverse range of uses for the voice assistant, which so far has been underused in many of the categories it is designed to help users with – despite being in the homes of millions of consumers.
The potential for new, health-related capacities for Amazon's Alexa could broaden the company's reach to previously untapped wellness-minded consumers.
