What’s Appening – Amazon Echo Dot and Smule Piano App
In our most recent “What’s Appening” segment, we meet Alexa and play the piano.
WBOC’s Director of Digital Media, Ethan Holland, joins us on the couches to “geek out” with Jimmy.
An Amazon Echo Dot has been out since ___. You trigger it by using a word “Alexa” and asking it a question. They ask Alexa how many days there are until Christmas, she tells jokes and she sings Happy Birthday. Ethan says his children use the Amazon Echo Dot for spelling help and definition of words. The price of the Amazon Echo Dot is $49.99 on Amazon.com.
Ethan also shows us the Smule Piano App which he says is similar to Rock Band. Jimmy gives it a try as well.
