Amazon Echo Buttons hit the UK just in time for Christmas trivia nights/fights

Amazon has announced its buzzer-like Echo Buttons are now available in the UK, although the firm is cutting it a bit fine for Brits to enjoy them on Christmas Day.

The multi-coloured Buttons, which have been on sale in the US since October, are designed to pair with Echo devices and facilitate trivia games with up to 4 players.

The first of a new range of Alexa Gadgets deploys the personal assistant as a quizmaster for games like Trivial Escape Tap, Party Foul and Button Monte.

Amazon says more experiences are coming soon, including games called Dungeon Escape and Don’t Cut the Wire.

Perhaps the most intriguing game is free-to-enable Beat the Intro game, where players are challenged to guess the names of songs before the singing starts. However, Amazon UK didn’t mentioned it in its communications on Tuesday.

Any old Echo

A two pack of Echo Buttons is available now for £19.99 and will be shipped immediately. That means Prime members only have a couple of days to ensure they arrive in time for Christmas.

The Buttons pair with all Amazon Echo devices, so there are no compatibility issues. Amazon is yet to announce further Alexa Gadgets, but they seem sure to show up in 2018.

The company dramatically expanded its repertoire of Echo devices in 2017, with the Echo Show, Echo Spot, Echo Plus, as well as an all-new second generation Amazon Echo now available.
