You’ll soon be able to ask Alexa questions when you’re on the go.
On Friday, Amazon (AMZN) announced that gadget manufacturers will be able to include the company’s voice assistant Alexa in portable devices like headphones, smartwatches and fitness wearables.
Users will be able to ask Alexa to do things like read the news or tell them the weather when they’re out and about.
Alexa is already integrated in some third-party devices such as speakers, kitchen appliances and security alarm systems.
With the tech giant’s new Alexa Mobile Accessory Kit, companies will be able to add Alexa to more gadgets with minimal investment in hardware or integration efforts, according to Amazon.
Amazon said that with the kit, third-party development teams no longer have to do the majority of the coding to integrate Alexa. Devices that are Bluetooth audio capable can connect directly to the Alexa Voice Service through the Amazon Alexa app on the user’s mobile device.

Sohu.com (SOHU) is a Chinese online media, search, gaming, community and mobile service group. This stock closed up 7.5% to $69.61 in Monday’s trading session.
Monday’s Volume: 4.90 million
Three-Month Average Volume: 1.01 million
Volume % Change: 351%
From a technical perspective, SOHU ripped sharply higher here with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of SOHU into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance at $67.80. Shares of SOHU are now quickly moving within range of triggering another breakout trade. That trade will hit if SOHU manages to take out Monday’s high of $69.71 to its 52-week high at $70.63 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in SOHU as long as it’s trending above Monday’s low of $66.95 or above that first breakout level of $67.80 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.01 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then SOHU will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $75 to $80.
