  • SEEK reveals voice-activated job search and career insights for Amazon Alexa devices

Westbury-based NEFCU plans to launch a service this year that will let its members check balances, hear transaction history, find a branch or ATM or get interest rates using Google Home or Amazon's Alexa, two talking speaker devices. It was capable of showing us the weather, looking up nearby restaurants, adding items into our Amazon shopping cart, and telling jokes. Most people don't even know Alexa is hiding in the main Amazon app.

We imagine it can be a bit confusing that Amazon has an Alexa app for mobile devices, but yet despite the name, the app doesn't actually contain the Alexa digital assistant, but rather it's an interface in which you use to control Alexa devices, like the Echo series of speakers.

The update is now rolling out to Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, with an App Store rollout coming soon. Earlier this month, Amazon said the voice assistant is coming to PCs.
