Amazon Echo gets StubHub event info, further automates your home

Since its introduction, Amazon has continued to add new features to its voice-controlled speaker. Most recently, the online retailer tacked on StubHub integration for keeping tabs on local events. Once you set your city, you can ask the gadget’s virtual assistant Alexa to tell you what’s going on this weekend, for example. Adding to its home automation toolbox, Echo also plays nice with Cree connected light bulbs and gear from both Levitron and Lightify through the Wink hub. If those don’t excite you too much you can rest assured that more of the so-called Skills are certainly on the way for the speaker and its built-in helper.
