Amazon today is introducing Echo Buttons, new accessories as a part of their Alexa Gadgets collection which aims to deliver “fun and playful products that enhance voice interactions with compatible Echo devices.” The new buttons allow specifically for friends and family to play games with their Echo such as a trivia game where you have to buzz in with your answer, similar to traditional trivia games on television. Amazon says Echo Buttons are only the beginning and to expect many more Alexa Gadgets in the future.
