Since the release of the Amazon Echo, users of the device have been unable to control streaming music through applications like Spotify without a phone or tablet nearby. That has now changed, thanks to the latest update to the personal assistant offered by Amazon. The update allows users to control iTunes, Pandora, and Spotify with their voice, eliminating the need to use a phone or tablet to control song choices. As before, music streaming must still be initiated from a phone or table, but the additional voice control capabilities add a nice touch to the Amazon Echo.

Along with additional voice control capabilities, the latest update to hit the Amazon Echo provides increased response speed and accuracy for various questions, extended coverage of facts sourced from Wikipedia, new spelling words and definitions, and a new "Simon Says" mode that repeats whatever is spoken after the phrase.
