The folks at Amazon continue to add small but cool new features to its Amazon Echo connected smart speaker. The company has sent out word that users can now ask, and receive, the latest sports scores and team schedules from the WNBA women's basketball league. They can also ask to listen to live concerts and events via TuneIn.
The addition of the WNBA is part of the Echo's previous support for retrieving scores and schedules from other pro sports leagues such as the MLB, MLS, NHL, NFL, NCAA, and NBA. Owners can just say, for example, "Alexa, who won the Atlanta Dream game?" or "Alexa, when do the Chicago Sky play next?" to get this info. The TuneIn live events support is enabled when owners say, "Alexa, play [station name] on TuneIn." The Amazon Echo is currently priced at $179.99.
