Amazon's Echo speaker gives you US election updates

Hear how the campaigns you love to hate are progressing.

NBC News announced on Tuesday that it has developed and released a new skill for the Amazon Echo that, when activated, will have Alexa read you regular updates of the 2016 presidential elections. The service will deliver news on upcoming events, pertinent headlines and delegate totals -- and that's just to start. NBC News states that in the coming weeks, that selection will expand to also include "polling data, primary results and trivia about candidates." There's no word on whether you can tailor the news by party or particular candidate so get ready to be inundated with reports of whatever racist things come out of Trump's mouth next.
