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.

Amazon Echo gets ready for Mother's Day with 1-800-Flowers

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.
