Amazon Echo, Google Home and the Jazz Con Class Radio Broadcast

As you ALL know the hottest products out there at the moment are those that anyone could “speak into” with voice commands. They have become extremely popular alternative methods for listening to music and the two main opponents are Amazon’s Echo and Google’s  Home. The Apple HomePod will join the fight in January of 2018. I personally don’t feel any sort of “advantage” in listening to music with these devices but they are still in their developmental stages. I’m sure we will see some new features implemented in the near future that will shock the world! Let’s not forget that we are talking about two mega companies here with more than enough “power” to control the market in many ways. As for the world of music, Echo and Home are establishing themselves as forerunners with this, voice recognition “revolution” and are making quite a big impact with a new alternative way of picking out and listening to music. They are also luring in the least technical users by accommodating them with a much accessible route with voice command. This is an excellent recruiting agent to add more members to their music service “paying” customers. There are other immediate factors involved and video has a lot to do with it during these, early stages. Of course, when announcements are made and strongly categorized as a “new technological advancement” by very powerful companies like these two, the attention level of the consumers will significantly rise. With money, comes the power of influence and these companies have the advantage of “over-advertising” to a point where the main topic and focus of casual conversations will suddenly shift and revolve around them. These so called “historical announcements” as Apple is so famous for, will certainly stir things up. Of course, there will be some concern, criticism and speculation mixed in the speech patterns of consumer conversations. And don’t forget, Apple is coming very soon:

People are already accusing Amazon and Google of monopolizing the music and video industry, just as others are literally welcoming them into their homes with the sound of their voice. Either way you look at it, they are here to stay and we will be subject to their non-stop advertising of their products on TV and the Internet. We don’t have to accept them immediately altogether and just wait to see where they are going with all this. Eventually, we will need to adjust, again, in case this new technology could become so overwhelming enough to effect our everyday way of life. I feel it is necessary and strongly recommend everyone young and old to keep up with this new way of communicating. It is also very important to understand that these companies work in a cautious, methodical pace when improving their new gadgets, so the consumers should both, have some sort of patience and keep up with all the periodical announcements made on added features concerning “all” their products because they are all interrelated. Are these gadgets a real advancement, are they just some sort of enhancement, or are they a complete hoax that only entices the consumer to purchase a product they absolutely don’t need? I don’t think we’ll ever get any sort of big picture in the near future from Amazon, Google and Apple, they never jump to any conclusions and make it almost impossible to predict. Let’s hope their main objective will benefit us all, somehow…..

Since Jazz Con Class Radio is very much associated with listening to music, then its my duty to inform my “LOYAL” listeners with “HOW” to connect to the station via Amazon Echo and Google Home. Before I do so, I have to congratulate Tunein Radio for connecting with Amazon and Google and making it possible to listen and enjoy a “FREE” internet radio station like Jazz Con Class Radio (you will see why below with the commands).

"Enjoy, very much, listening to your arrangements. My wife and I have two sons (14 & 11) who think Jazz is 'Dad's elevator music'. However, while we were watching 'High Society' Bing Crosby was leading the band in 'Now you has Jazz', while slowly adding each instrument. Finally, of course, the whole number was really rolling with Louis Armstrong leading the way! My youngest son, Joseph, said 'Dad, play that once more.' My wife smiled at me and I knew this wonderful, American art form was getting through to them.
Keep going, Jose. Jazz Con Class Radio is fabulous!"
