A quick alert on two new Alexa-enabled Amazon Tap and Echo Dot
I read about these this morning, from a couple of email pieces, one that was probably sent to most of us.
For those who didn't see them, here are the salient points quoted plus a photo of the Comparison table's Amazon Tap speaker features-detail (that are compared with other speakers on the product page) that will give an idea of what it can do vs features on other popular speakers. Voice Search is one.

"Amazon Tap is an Alexa-enabled portable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speaker that gives you rich, full-range sound.
Just tap the microphone button and ask for music, request the news, search for information, order a pizza, and more with the Alexa Voice Service.
Amazon Tap has dual stereo speakers with Dolby processing that provides crisp vocals, extended bass response, and 360° omni-directional audio.
Small and easy to travel with, you can enjoy great music and Alexa wherever you are. "
Echo Dot - Amazon's description:
' Echo Dot uses the same far-field voice recognition as Echo and is a convenient addition to any room of the house.
Directly connect Echo Dot to speakers with an audio cable or via Bluetooth, and
add voice-control to your home stereo system.
With its built-in speaker, you can place Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights,
or use Dot in the kitchen to easily set timers and add items to your shopping list using just your voice.
Echo Dot is available for $89.99 in limited quantities exclusively for Prime members through Alexa Voice Shopping. Limit 1 per order, 2 per customer. To order your Echo Dot, existing Echo and Fire TV customers can just say “Alexa, order an Echo Dot.” '
