Alibaba to launch product similar to Amazon Echo

Saturday, 1 July 2017

Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba Group Holding Ltd would launch a product mimicking Amazon.com Inc’s Echo next week, according to a source familiar with the matter.  Amazon Echo, launched in 2014, is a speaker which one can leave on all day and give voice commands to, similar to Siri on an Apple Inc iPhone.

Alibaba’s new product would be made available only in China and speak only Mandarin. Apple and Google, a unit of Alphabet Inc, have unveiled products similar to Echo with the HomePod and Google Home.

The Information, a technology website, was the first to report the news on 29 June. Alibaba did not immediately respond to a request for comment, outside business hours.
