Amazon.com, Qualcomm to put Alexa assistant in more headphones

Updated : October 23, 2018 08:32 AM IST

Under the deal, Qualcomm will release a set of chips that any maker of Bluetooth headphones can use to embed Alexa directly into the device. When the headphones are paired to a phone with the Alexa app on it, users will be able to talk to the voice assistant by tapping a button on the headphones.
The functionality would be similar to Apple Inc's AirPods wireless earbuds, which enable users can tap the devices to talk to Apple's virtual assistant, Siri.
