The first accessory that makes use of Amazon's Alexa platform is now available. The Triby is a small portable speaker that has access to Alexa's voice services, can make VoIP phone calls and is even magnetic so it can stick to your fridge when you don't want to hold it. Additionally, the speaker can get the news, set alarms, play your favorite Spotify playlist, and even draw and share doodles and texts from your phone to its always-on display.
Triby is the first non-Amazon accessory that uses Amazon's Alexa service to become available to purchase. The speaker will retail for $199, but right now it has an introductory price of just $169. You should be able to enjoy up to two days of battery life per charge, and you will need to use the Triby companion which is available on both Android and iOS.
