Amazon will open an Echo-style service in cities like Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Boston, the company announced today.
The Echo device can talk to Amazon’s Alexa assistant, which can then act as a personal assistant for users.
It will be part of the company’s effort to help people use their Amazon devices in a smarter way.
The new service, called Amazon Echo in Chicago, will allow users to ask Alexa for things like directions and directions to local shops, and will work as a home automation device, according to Amazon.
The company also plans to start offering services for its Echo devices in Boston.
The Chicago service will launch in the city in September, and it will be available for free to anyone with a Amazon Echo device.
Amazon’s announcement comes days after the company said it was acquiring the startup Eudora for $15 billion.
The deal is expected to close by the end of the year.
Amazon did not provide specific details about how many people will use the new service.
The news comes after a number of companies announced their plans to launch Alexa-like devices.
Google’s Echo speakers have been on sale for months and a number companies, including Amazon and Microsoft, have also announced plans to support Alexa.
Amazon is just the latest tech company to launch its own voice assistant.
Google also announced a new feature for Google Home, which will allow it to respond to commands with a list of words and phrases.
