Android on a Smartwatch & Amazon May Charge for Alexa

Today on the show, Steven and Shaun discuss a news story that has been circulating suggesting the company might be about to put a price on Alexa. The company has been quoted as saying that, following new generative AI features announced last week, it may be time for a subscription model to be added to Alexa.

Also, we hear a demo from listener Elijah in the voice of Amazon Polly showing off a smartwatch with a difference: it’s running a full edition of Android software. The watch also features a camera and with the Android software installed, can run most apps from the Google Play Store. But, it’s a project not for the faint-hearted, as Elijah explains.
