Magic mark: Amazon reveals for the first time, how many Alexa-devices are in circulation
Google raised some eyebrows at last year's CES, when the company all but declared war on Amazon's Alexa and other rivals. This total includes all devices that have Alexa built-in, and Amazon has opted not to reveal individual device sale data. Rather than including support for Amazon and Google's voice-controlled assistants in its TVs, Samsung is adding support for existing devices. But most importantly, the company now has some serious bragging rights to back up its CES domination: Google Assistant is now on 1 billion devices, according to the company. Its daily and monthly active user base has grown four times since this point a year ago, according to Google. Amazon had established the device category smart speaker with wizard Software and now trying to bring Alexa into more and more technology from different manufacturers.
Compared to Alexa and Google Assistant, Bixby is now considered an inferior product that lacks the greater and deeper abilities of the other two.
In addition to news rendering and music listening, the Alexa-powered devices such as Echo Dot, Echo, Echo Spot and much more can be extended with the help of Alexa skills. "I think someday, third-party Alexa-enabled endpoints may be vastly larger than what we produce ourselves", he says.
