Amazon Echo is now already a range of devices. The company is going more aggressively into platform expansion. The same thing is happening with the Amazon Dash system. More and more devices connect to the system making it eventually ubiquitous. Amazon's Voice platform Alexa is on a similar path and who is going to stop it. Google, Microsoft and Apple are the closest competitors with their voice assistant systems.
