Amazon is Working on Making an AirPod Competitor Powered by Alexa
Team Siri or team Alexa?
Amazon is working on their own version of the AirPods, which is set to launch later this year. Consumers will be able to order Amazon goods by speaking to Alexa through their ear pods, similar to Apple’s Siri support.
Amazon wants to differentiate themselves by making sure the sound quality is more elevated than the AirPods. The Amazon pods are also said to be compatible with both iOS and Android devices.
Since Amazon will be competing with the AirPods, the price may be lower for users who don’t want to spend $200 on Apple’s AirPods.
