Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. The usefulness of smart speakers continues to grow. Alexa Cast has come to Amazon’s devices. Using the Amazon Music app…which is free for Prime users…will give you a listing of the various Alexa enabled devices that are on your network. Then you can control which of them should be playing. A useful feature for families with multiple devices. In the meantime, Panasonic is out with the GA-10 speaker and it is designed to impress with modern styling, great sound quality and Google Assistant built in. And Lenovo has begun shipping a Google Assistant device….but this one has a screen. There are 8 inch and 10 inch models starting at about two hundred dollars. And don’t forget Amazon’s new dock to turn Fire HD tablets…into what amounts to an Echo Show.
