JAM™ Audio Gets a Voice

JAM Voice among first non-Amazon speakers to utilize Alexa Voice Service

COMMERCE TOWNSHIP, Mich., September 27, 2016 - JAM Audio, makers of the No. 1-selling Bluetooth speaker in the U.S. for the past four years, announces its first voice-operated smart speaker. JAM Voice is among the first non-Amazon speakers in the marketplace to utilize Amazon's Alexa Voice Service technology.

JAM Voice, with Alexa Voice Service, uses artificial intelligence technology to make many tasks easier than ever. Some of the functionality includes, but is not limited to:
• Stream Music: Ask JAM Voice to play music from Spotify, iHeartRadio, a personal music library and music services available with Alexa
• Connect other JAM Wi-Fi speakers to tell JAM Voice what rooms a user would like music played
• Get the news: JAM Voice will recite the latest headlines and news
• Get traffic and weather: Ask JAM Voice for traffic and weather reports
• Control smart home devices: Native controls for smart lights, thermostats, switches, etc.
• Answer questions: JAM Voice can solve equations, look up facts and figures, perform metric conversions and more
• Set Alarms and Timers: Tell JAM Voice a wake up time and it will set the alarm
• Create shopping lists: JAM Voice can create and update shopping lists
• Use Alexa App to download "Skills": Each "Skill" teaches Alexa to learn something new—such as a pizza-ordering skill available from Domino's
"Since the inception of JAM Audio, our mission has been to provide consumers with high-quality products that utilize the latest technologies at significantly lower prices," said John Mikkola, director of product development. "Our latest offering, JAM Voice, provides everyone a chance to enjoy the convenience of a virtual assistant—making daily life tasks easier."

Since JAM Voice uses the cloud-based Alexa Voice Service technology, it is continually getting smarter. It adopts and improves responses and information based on use and preferences and learns new skills to add more features. JAM Voice will initially be available at Best Buy, with an on-sale date of October 30, 2016. The speaker will retail for $69.99.
