Acer has just revealed that a few of their laptops will ship with Amazon’s Alexa already installed. The Nitro 5 Spin (available in June) will be the first Acer notebooks to ship with Alexa pre-installed.
Acer is also promising updates to enable Alexa on the rest of its compatible models, starting with the Spin 5 on May 23rd and the Spin 3 on May 25th.
Alexa on Acer laptops will offer access to the usual artificial intelligence (AI) based tasks the voice-assistant has become famous for. Through Alexa, users can control smart home devices, check the weather, play music, and much more.
Among the laptops the Spin 5 is the only Acer model that has far-field voice recognition capabilities. For other laptops, users will have to stand quite close for Alexa to understand you.
Regardless, Acer laptops are the first to provide Alexa capabilities. So if you’re looking to use Alexa on your computer, check out Acer’s new laptops!
