Wynn Las Vegas and Amazon announce plans to equip all 4,748 hotel rooms at Wynn Las Vegas with Echo, Amazon’s hands-free voice-controlled speaker.
The introduction of this technology into every guest room, beginning this month with installation in suites allowing guests of Wynn Las Vegas to control various hotel room features with a series of voice commands via Alexa, the brain behind Echo. 
Alexa will be fully operational in all guest rooms by summer 2017, and will initially control guest room lights, room temperature, drapery and the television.  
As the project evolves, future features such as personal assistant functions will be introduced. 
Alexa is the brain behind Amazon Echo and other Alexa-enabled devices. Just ask and she’ll answer questions, read the news, set timers and alarms, recite calendars, check sports scores, control smart devices in-home, and more.
