Just last week we brought you news of the Alexa Mobile Accessory Kit, which makes it a lot easier for mobile device manufacturers to incorporate Amazon's digital assistant into their devices. Alexa can now slither her way into your mobile devices without the manufacturers having to implement lines and lines of code. But that isn't enough. Alexa is still hungry. Alexa must feed. Her next victim? ASUS ZenBook and VivoBook laptops.

ASUS took the stage at CES 2018 and announced that select upcoming models in the ZenBook and VivoBook lines will feature support for Alexa, giving users access to tens of thousands of tasks. The first models to do this will be announced within the first half of the year.

“Voice is a natural interface for interacting with technology and can make everyday tasks simpler,” said Steve Rabuchin, Vice President, Amazon Alexa. “We’re delighted that ASUS will bring the Alexa experience to its laptop models – providing hands-free voice capabilities, and tens of thousands of skills, to PC customers at their desks and on-the-go.”

Since that actual Alexa-compatible models haven't been announced yet, we have no details on release date, pricing, political preference, etc.
