New Amazon Echo feature...of course!

We all knew it was coming but not just when. Got this email from Amazon today:

"Re-ordering your favorite Prime products is now even easier with Echo -- just use your voice. If you're low on kitchen supplies, want to restock on snacks, or need more rolls of duct tape for the garage, simply ask Echo to place an order for you.

Just say "Alexa, re-order laundry detergent" -- Echo will search your order history and can order the item for you using your default payment and shipping settings. If Echo can't find the requested item in your order history, it may suggest an item for your approval using Amazon's Choice, which picks highly-rated, well-priced, Prime products. You can manage your shopping preferences and set an optional confirmation code in your Amazon Echo App."

Wasn't that the whole purpose of the Echo?

Maybe not whole reason, but definitely 90%.

And I'm ok with this.

It's really amazing technology that is far better than Siri.

I agree. I'm amazed at the answers I can get from the Echo. Far superior to Siri or Google.

I have a Fire Phone. Wonder how the two voice services compares?
