Report: Amazon might ask you to pay for the best Alexa

Amazon has been working on an upgrade for Alexa for much of 2024. Rumors last month said the tech giant wanted to implement AI technology into their assistant so it could compete with the likes of ChatGPT.

Now, as part of a new report, Reuters recently spoke to “eight current and former employees who worked on Alexa,” providing insight into what the future update could bring. These sources claim that the project, “known internally as Banyan,” consists of two versions of Alexa.
