Motorola's New Moto Mod Adds Amazon Alexa To Your Moto Z For $149, Arrives in November

 

Moto Z gains a new Moto Mod which is the Moto Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa. With this speaker connected to your Moto Z device, you’ll be able to access Alexa by voice command at any time.




This Amazon Alexa-equipped smart speaker works with the Moto Z and Moto Z2 family. Just snap the mod and it will start working, giving you access to Alexa to play music, get news, grab answers to questions, control your smart home, order an Uber, add items to a grocery list, etc. It’s like an Amazon Echo, only in Moto Mod form on the back of your phone.

The speaker is ubiquitous, so you can call on Alexa to access her tens of thousands of skills to do whatever it is you need at any time, meaning there’s no button. It even works well in noisy scenarios, apparently, thanks to a whopping 4 microphones.

The Moto Smart Speaker boasts 15 hours of battery life, and a dock design makes it easy to charge the thing while keeping Alexa snapped to the back of it. Pretty neat stuff, it is.

This new Moto Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa arrives in November for $149.99 at places like Amazon, Best Buy, Verizon, and Motorola’s online shop.
