From BGR:
Why do they even make speakers anymore that don’t have Alexa built in? We won’t be happy until Alexa is easily accessible anywhere and everywhere. If you’re the same way, we’ve got something you definitely need to check out. Amazon’s new Echo Input is the device you’ve been waiting for. Simply connect it to any portable speaker or home audio system and it instantly adds hands-free Alexa access. Now every speaker can be an Alexa speaker!

From weather updates to managing your Spotify playlist, you can also ask Alexa to set alarms, add items to your to-do list and so much more all from virtually anywhere in your home—even when music is playing. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on new smart speakers, the $35 Echo Input will make your “dumb” speakers smart.
