Amazon Alexa is slowly but surely becoming an excellent replacement for Google Home and Motorola thinks so too as they have introduced a new Moto Mod that will bring the assistant to all supported Motorola phones. The mod will work exactly as the normal assistant and comes with a dedicated speaker that will output Alexa’s voice.
In addition to the dedicated speaker, there are also four mics to pick up your voice even in a noisy environment, an excellent feature compared to using the phone’s microphones. If you are worried about battery life, the mod will have a 15-hour built-in battery that will keep your phone alive while you have a conversation with Alexa, it also has a dock-like design that is intended to be used on your nightstand.
The only drawback to this mod is the price, as it comes with a costly price tag of $150 when it ships in November to countries that support Alexa. Currently, if you browse Amazon, you can easily pick up an Echo Dot for about $50 and that itself is already very portable or an Amazon Echo for $100.
