The Amazon Echo continues to see its capabilities expand, with the voice-powered, connected speaker now letting you order flowers just in time for Mother's Day. Orders can be placed through 1-800-Flowers once you connect an account, and you can choose from one of four arrangements for each order.

The Echo and Alexa are now ready for Star Wars Day, which is coming up on Wednesday, May 4. You can ask Alexa to tell you a Star Wars joke or an interesting fact about the franchise. There's also a new "Top Pop" playlist that you'll find in Prime Music, which, of course, you can ask Alexa to play through your Echo.
