Alexa: Oprah’s new fa­vorite thing

The Week (US) - - 18 News -

“Alexa is get­ting its first celebrity voice, and it’s Oprah,” said Sarah Perez in TechCrunch .com. “Be­fore you get too ex­cited, Oprah won’t re­spond to your day-to-day ques­tions, as Alexa does.” In­stead, Win­frey will help Ama­zon cus­tomers buy items from her hol­i­dayin­spired list of “Fa­vorite Things.” Sim­ply ask Alexa to “shop Oprah’s fa­vorite things,” and the mul­ti­me­dia mogul her­self will re­spond with rec­om­men­da­tions of her fa­vorite prod­ucts, in­clud­ing why she picked the item and an op­tion to pur­chase it. If you de­cline to buy, she will move on to the next prod­uct on the list. Oprah iden­ti­fied 102 “fa­vorites” this year, in­clud­ing “a Sam­sung TV, a 25-pack of Julep lip­sticks, and wa­ter­proof snow boots from Sorel.”
