Amazon’s New Echo Buttons Aim to Make Playing Games with Your Echo a Thing

Amazon today is introducing Echo Buttons, new accessories as a part of their Alexa Gadgets collection which aims to deliver “fun and playful products that enhance voice interactions with compatible Echo devices.” The new buttons allow specifically for friends and family to play games with their Echo such as a trivia game where you have to buzz in with your answer, similar to traditional trivia games on television. Amazon says Echo Buttons are only the beginning and to expect many more Alexa Gadgets in the future.


Echo Buttons, an Alexa Gadget, deliver a new way to play games through your compatible Echo device. Each button illuminates and can be pressed to trigger a variety of game play experiences powered by Alexa. Bring back game night with a variety of Alexa Skills such as Beat the Intro from Musicplode, Dungeon Escape, and Sounds Fun with Mike Epps from Ground Control.

Echo Buttons will be sold in packs of two for $19.99. They’ll launch this December.
