Steve Wozniak Thinks Amazon Echo is 'The Next Big Platform' [Video]

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak expressed his love for the Amazon Echo, declaring it 'the next big platform for the near future' in an interview with CNBC.

"I'm excited right now about the Amazon Echo, oddly enough," Wozniak told CNBC this week. "I think it's the next big platform for the near future if I'm right."

"It's just become such a wonderful part of our life, not having to lift anything up and speak to things, and just speak to it anywhere across a room," he said. "That is such a luxury and freedom."

You can just say, 'Get me an Uber,' and it does ... you can say, 'Get me some paper towels,' and if it knows your last order on Amazon, it orders it right there," he said. Wozniak even ordered his second Echo by telling his first to "order me an Echo."

Notably, Sonos CEO John Macfarlane recently praised the Amazon Echo as well.

"Alexa/Echo is the first product to really showcase the power of voice control in the home. Its popularity with consumers will accelerate innovation across the entire industry. What is novel today will become standard tomorrow."

You can purchase the Amazon Echo for $179.99. The company has also just released two new products with the Alexa Voice Service, the Echo Dot ($89.99) and the Amazon Tap ($129.99).
