Amazon keeps making its Echo speaker better and better. The device, powered by the retailer's Alexa voice recognition technology, is now getting an update that allows it to give more info about movies, like which are playing at theaters near you and when, as well as other practical details. Your only job is to say audio commands such as "Alexa, what action movies are playing Friday night?" or "Alexa, tell me more about Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

Additionally, with Super Bowl 50 only a couple weeks away, the handy virtual assistant has also gained some football knowledge. Aside from being able to get the NFL game scores (including live), you can also ask Alexa for predictions. If these features haven't hit your Echo yet, don't worry -- they should arrive momentarily.
