The main question here is why Amazon didn’t just roll all these features into one new device. It seems difficult to imagine someone wanting to purchase all three Echo-like devices for the three use cases Amazon envisions (your kitchen table, your living room stereo, the outside world), especially when smartphone voice assistants do pretty much the same job. Both new devices have their drawbacks, but Amazon quietly announced another new feature for Echo today that might hint at the company’s end goal with these devices. The Echo can now control the Nest thermostat, meaning if you’re too cold, you can just ask Alexa to raise the heat a bit. It’s just the latest in a long line of partnerships that Amazon has engineered for Echo. You can order an Uber, you can control smart light bulbs, order a Domino’s pizza, buy tickets to a baseball game, find out how soon Donald Trump will be elected—all just by talking to Alexa.

The Echo is controlled by voice commands beginning with the trigger words “Alexa” or “Amazon.” A ring of lights at the top of the black cylinder turns blue, orange, or red as it listens, processes, responds, or sits idle. It talks back in crystal clear sound using natural language.

Just like an actual echo, Amazon’s voice-enabled speaker is repeating itself, and coming back a little bit garbled. The online retailer announced two new voice-enabled speakers to complement the original Echo, first released in 2014.

Amazon’s second new device is basically the original Echo, with a better speaker. It’s unclear why the Tap doesn’t have the same branding as the other Echo devices: It looks a lot like the original Echo, and has Alexa built-in. Like the original Echo, the Tap can connect to a wifi network and pulls content itself from the internet. It can also connect via Bluetooth to your phone or tablet to stream music (it just can’t access Alexa that way.) So if you have a mobile hotspot and you’ve always wanted to take the experience of the Echo with you to a picnic, you can do that now. Perhaps you forgot to bring some napkins for the picnic—now you can just ask Tap to order you some, and you can keep listening to your Discover Weekly playlist on Spotify while you wait.

As the Internet of Things slowly moves from vaporous hype into actual products that people actually need, we’re going to need a way to interact with all those devices, and that could well be Amazon’s Alexa, running on Echo devices everywhere. As Nest’s founder Matt Rogers said in the company’s announcement: “It really feels like you’re living in the future.”

“Everybody is a story,” writes Dr. Remen in her introduction. “When I was a child, people sat around the kitchen tables and told their stories. We don’t do that so much anymore. Sitting around the table telling stories is not just a way of passing time. It is the way the wisdom gets passed along. Despite the awesome powers of technology many of us still do not live very well. We may need to listen to one another’s stories again.”

“I loved Kitchen Table Wisdom. It is a beautiful book. When you read this collection of stories, you will find yourself pausing to remember holy pieces of yourself, when you were awed by the Great Mystery, and glimpsed humanity’s relationship to divinity, or felt a deep soul connection with another.” – Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD, author of Crossing to Avalon

I’m not married, I don’t have kids, I live in a New York City apartment. I don’t spend that much time in the kitchen, which is where the hands-free feature is most useful. I own no connected light bulbs and plugs. And if I need an answer to something or want to play music, I have a cell phone which is a far more powerful computer at this point.
