peking - Internet giant Alibaba presented a smart speaker on Wednesday. The Tmall Genie costs 499 yuan, converted around 65 euros, making it considerably cheaper that Amazon's Echo and the Google Home.
The Tmall Genie can be served by talking to Mandarin and is therefore intended for the Chinese market. It is not yet known whether the device will come to other countries later. At the presentation, Apple ordered the assistant to order cola, play music, raise credit and turn on a television. The speaker can also buy products from Alibaba daughter Tmall's online store. It looks like Amazon's Echo.
Apple recently presented his smart speaker, the HomePod, who uses Siri. Samsung would also work for help, with the code name Vega, based on speech assistant Bixby.
