Amazon announces a new Echo accessory called the Echo Button

Amazon has announced the Echo Button, which is a small device, similar in size to the Echo Dot, that wirelessly connects to Echo devices to give you a way to physically interact with Amazon’s line of smart speakers. It was demonstrated as the buzzer button for an Alexa trivia game skill at today’s event, but will likely be capable of much more thanks to a new Gadget API that Amazon announced for Alexa developers. You can’t order the button yet, but it seems like there will be additional “Alexa Gadgets” released in the future.
