During CES 2018, we learned that Amazon is working to bring its Alexa voice assistant to Windows 10 PCs. Alexa for PCs isn't available just yet, but if you're stoked about the app, you can now sign up to be notified when it is.
Outside of learning that PCs from companies like ASUS, HP, Lenovo, and Acer will be among the first to feature Alexa, initial news of the integration was fairly light on details. Amazon's landing page fills in a few more details, offering a look at some of the specific voice actions you'll be able to use it for, as well as the services it will support. Curiously, Amazon says that Alexa for PC will only support playing music from Amazon Music, SiriusXM, and iHeartRadio. Missing from that list are Spotify, Pandora, and TuneIn, each of which is available on Amazon's own Echo devices.
According to Amazon, the Alexa app should be available for select Windows 10 PCs from Acer, Lenovo, and HP starting in Q1 2018. At least initially, the app will only be available in the U.S. For more, you can sign up to receive updates at Amazon.
