Amazon just announced a custom voice assistant deal with Disney and a bushel full of new products including a smart display you hang on the wall and a home robot. After the event concluded, a few of us gathered in the Voicebot Community Discord to discuss what we saw, our initial reactions, and what it is likely to mean for the industry. Plus, we learn which of the new products the podcast guests are planning to buy and why.

Joining me in the conversation are Sarah Andrew Wilson of Matchbox.io, Allen Firstenberg from Objective Consulting, Tom Hewitson from Labworks.io, Dave Kemp of Oaktree Products. and Andrew Herndon from Voicebot.ai.
