NEW YORK, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Invoxia, a leading developer of speakers and telecoms devices, has announced the Amazon Alexa Voice Service (AVS) is now integrated and available on Triby, its family-friendly kitchen device that combines music, messaging and communication functionality in one voice-activated product. Starting today, Triby becomes the first non-Amazon product to be Alexa-enabled.
Triby is a fun addition to any family, transforming the way they connect with the content and people they love. Triby is a digital assistant, Internet radio, connected speaker, hands-free speakerphone, and connected message board all rolled into one! And now with Alexa, customers have hands-free voice control for information from Wikipedia and the web, weather, timers and alarms, news, shopping/to-do lists, sports updates and scores, smart home features, calendar entries, IFTTT, and much more—with new skills being added every week.

As the first non-Amazon product with a built-in Alexa experience, Triby gives families unprecedented access to new and exciting services. Simply say "Alexa, play Adele" and Triby can play Adele from Prime Music, say "Alexa, add milk to my list" and Triby will add it to your shopping list, or "Alexa, turn off the kitchen lights" and Triby becomes a way to access and control the smart home.
"As a company with a specialty in creating speakers and telecoms devices, we are excited by the world of possibilities consumer products like Triby offer families to improve their lives," said Sébastien de la Bastie, Managing Director of Invoxia. "Our expertise in far field voice capture and connected devices helped us integrate the Alexa Voice Service quickly, and now the already multi-functional Triby becomes even more versatile and intelligent, giving people access to continually evolving cloud-based content and services."
"As one of our first Alexa Fund companies, it's great to see Triby offer their customers Alexa integration today," said Steve Rabuchin, Vice President, Amazon Alexa.
