CES 2019 has been rolling out swanky new equipment, accessories, software, and so much more since its launch on January 8.
This time, Razer takes the spotlight with its new Alexa-enabled voice controls, giving users a whole new dimension of accessibility on their gaming peripherals and accessories. This will be done via Razer’s cloud-based hardware configuration tool, Razer Synapse 3.
For instance, you could be able to control your lighting setup on Chroma simply by directing Alexa to your preferred settings. Now, you’ll be able to say things like “Alexa, change my lighting profile to FPS mode”, “Alexa, run Overwatch“. Easy as pie.
If you’re the kind that prefers things instantly without having the hassle of changing tabs and drag-clicking sliders, or even using hotkeys because your hands are tied somehow, then Alexa on your Razer devices will be your new best friend.
Razer also highlighted that Alexa will work on any third-party software that is part of the Razer Chroma Connected Devices Program. With now over 300 devices and more than 15 different brands supported, gamers are in for a much more streamlined and ultimately smooth gaming experience.
Just don’t expect Alexa to roll out of the Nameless King’s way. That’s still on you.
Alexa’s integration into Razer Synapse is slated to take into effect from Q2 2019 onwards. More details to be announced at a later date.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
