Amazon Alexa on PC

There’s no doubt that digital assistants are here to stay. Since Microsoft has pretty much killed off the consumer version of Cortana, they’ve partnered with Amazon to bring Alexa to Windows 10 PCs. Lenovo is looking to bring Alexa to its lineup this year, starting with the Yoga Slim 7.

While speaking to your computer for assistance and getting things done has been around for a while now, Lenovo does have one ace up their sleeve. Coming later this year, starting with the Yoga S940 and Yoga C940, the Lid Closed Voice feature does just what it sounds like it does. That’s right it will let you use Alexa even when the lid of your Lenovo Yoga is closed through the use of exposed microphones and Lenovo’s Modern Standby feature.

Other features of Alexa on Lenovo PCs will include:

  • Speak to Alexa cloud-based voice service from up to four meters away even in standby mode
  • Check out the new dongle accessory16 that activates new Smart Light RGB illumination (similar to a smart speaker) when Alexa is listening to your commands on your Windows 10 PC, plus easy access to button controls for power, volume, and push-to-talk
  • Broadcast an Announcement, e.g. “Dinner’s Ready!” through your PC to amplify voice throughout your home on all your active Amazon Echo™ devices
  • Enjoy an enhanced Smart Home feature that allows Alexa users to issue just one command to activate whole groups of Internet of Things connected devices at once vs. one at a time.

Pricing and Availability

The above products will be available for consumers starting in the Spring of 2020. Prices below are in USD.
