Wynn Hotel Las Vegas announced that all its 4,748 rooms would be equipped with the voice-controlled speaker Echo from Amazon. The brain behind the Echo will soon be at your service for the job it is famous for, providing voice assistance. By the mid of 2017, the controller will be available at your service in all rooms as the hotel has already started installing the Echo. Guests can ask the Echo to play some music, toggle the lights on/off, open and close curtains, control the room temperatureand even turn on and off the TV. The spokesperson from the hotel said they are expecting the guests to ask questions, check the score, set alarms and get news updates as well.
