Voice-controlled devices continue to grow more impressive by the week, and in the latest development, today Amazon announced that its Alexa voice assistant service will soon be able to help out in the kitchen.

"We are truly grateful that Hisense chose Cape Town as its base for operations into the rest of Africa and wish the company great success with its expansion plans in extending its production lines", said spokesperson for the Mayor, Zara Nicholson.

Though the Amazon Echo has been on sale in the U.S. since summer 2015, Apple still hasn't launched its competing home speaker, the Apple HomePod.

Amazon Alex lets you control both the Hisense TV, and your smart home, where you can take control of your inputs, stream online radio, or turn your lights on/off from the comfort of your couch.

Having said that, Amazon has now announced an interesting use case or feature for Alexa.

In addition to setting timers, checking the weather or reading the news, Alexa devices can be programmed to control other internet-connected devices.

Hisense will be debuting its full 2018 lineup at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, January 9-12, 2018 at booth #10039.

Amazon, though, has officially rejected the report.

It's interesting to watch Amazon's strategy at CES, particularly compared to fellow Seattle tech giant Microsoft, which previously used the event to make announcements at big keynotes but has reduced its involvement over the past several years.

Being the first brand in Alexa's search results would also be especially valuable, because shoppers are more likely to select the first option available when they can't physically scroll down to see other brands.

How to Build an Alexa Gadget!

Survey data from Edison Research released last June found that Amazon Alexa-enabled devices have 82% market share compared to just 18% for Google Home.

Alexa isn't the only smart voice assistant at CES. This allows companies to set up voice routines for things like video conferencing, create their own private voice skills, and manage the Alexa commands that employees can use. This year, you can expect a peek into the future of 5G connectivity; augmented reality; wireless charging; self-driving cars; 8K TVs; wearables; and much more.
