Huawei Launches First Alexa-Enabled Smartphone

Tech Times – The Huawei Mate 9 will be available for purchase in the US starting tomorrow. The smart phone is the first to have Amazon’s Alexa pre-installed. This is a victory for Amazon who has been looking to push its digital assistants into other devices. The company can also now directly compete with other smart phone assistants like Apple’s Siri and Google Assistant.

Mate 9 users will be able to ask Alexa to make a to-do list, check the weather, get traffic reports, set an alarm and more. While the Mate 9 was released in November, it was not available in the US until now. Users in select countries will now be able to access Alexa with a software upgrade. LINK
