When Amazon first launched its Echo Smart Speaker last year, it also set up a $100 million investment fund to help bring its Alexa developer kit to additional third-party devices. Today, that money is coming to fruition with the new Triby voice-controlled smart hub and speaker.

Not only does it offer support for the popular virtual assistant, this portable speaker is packed with other features like VoIP, Spotify Connect and more. Full details below.
