Over 100 million devices featuring Alexa have already sold, Amazon SVP of devices and services Dave Limp told the Verge. Limp said the company went beyond its own expectations for Echo Dot during the holiday season but declined to give more specific details. There are more than 150 products with Alexa built in, more than 28,000 smart home devices that work with Alexa made by more than 4,500 different manufacturers, and over 70,000 Alexa skills. Samsung said it will be opening up its 2019 QLED TV lineup to other voice assistants, such as Alexa or Google's Assistant.
