Amazon's Echo Buttons Allow Alexa to Participate in Gaming Experiences

Amazon recently introduced the 'Echo Button,' a device that connects to Amazon Alexa and makes it possible for groups to play games that have players buzz in their answers.

The colorful Echo Buttons are part of a new line of Alexa Gadgets and are sold in packs of two. The Echo-compatible devices are capable of lighting up and can be pressed to start a gaming experience with Amazon Alexa.

As it stands, Alexa is equipped with a number of skills that make it possible to play games with the smart voice assistant. As seen with Amazon Alexa and other board game innovations, tangible objects are now being introduced so that consumers may enjoy a new way to play their favorite games. For instance, Amazon has confirmed that its Echo Buttons will support Hasbro's Trivial Pursuit.
