Alexa on your Apple Watch. “Voice in a Can”

Hi, I discovered a new Apple Watch complication called “Voice in a Can”. It gives you Alexa on your wrist...or wherever you might have strapped your apple watch.

It costs $1.99 in the app store. I’m not sure it’s nearly as fast as Colorado’s Siri app plugin....but alexa isn’t siri. At this point, I can report it works well. I’m testing from the office 12 miles from home, using “voice in a can” to give alexa commands aimed at the alexa-hue bridge plugin running at my house. I can see devices changing as requested in Indigo Touch. So far so good. My devices respond. And now I can talk with Alexa without packing my other iOS devices.

Edit: opps....It’s called “Voice in a Can”

Re: Alexa on your Apple Watch. “Voice in a Box”

That's pretty cool, I might have to check that out. I still use my Alexa for several things and it would be nice to have it with me when I think of something to add to a grocery list.

Thanks for the Siri Interface....and ....an important correction: The complication is called “Voice in a Can”. :)
