Barcelona: China-based smartphone maker Coolpad on Wednesday announced that it will integrate Amazon’s smart assistant Alexa in some of its devices.

With the integration, Coolpad smartphone owners will be able to give voice command using the Coolpad Alexa app for multiple tasks.

“We are working to immerse more AI and tech into smartphones to make the experience more intelligent, friendly and beneficial for users. Incorporating Alexa in Coolpad smartphones is one such step in that direction,” Syed Tajuddin, CEO-Coolpad India, said in a statement.

The handset maker will roll out Alexa in Cool Play 6, Note 5 and Note 5 via an Over-the-Air (OTA) update and its upcoming devices will come with Amazon Alexa pre-installed.
